Fresh from a stunning 12:0 win over Bremer in the DFB Pokal, Bayern return to Bundesliga action as they play host to Hertha Berlin in the tea-time kick-off at the Allianz Arena.
Having endured a difficult pre-season, Bayern seems to be finding their feet again with three successive wins over Dortmund, Koln and the aforementioned Bremer.
Still, the Bavarians have yet to convince in defence, although new signing Upamecano should offer a stronger presence in the heart of the Bayern defence than has been the case in recent seasons.
However, goals are usually on the agenda when Bayern are involved, with the hosts seeing over 2.5 goals scored in 12 of their last 14 home league matches. In addition, Bayern HAVE only managed 3 clean sheets from their last 15 home matches.
While Bayern HAVE won each of the last three meetings between these sides, last season´s corresponding fixture finished with a remarkable 4:3 win for Bayern with Robert Lewandowski bagging all 4 goals on that day.
The Poles remarkable recent form has seen him break a long-standing league record by scoring in each of his last 12 Bundesliga appearances. Remarkably, Lewi has scored in 21 of his last 22 league appearances for Bayern, netting a ridiculous 31 goals in those 21 matches.
