The last time Bayern Munich were in the Olympiastadion they completed a record number of passes in the Bundesliga, circulating possession and flow with ease and grace. This visit though comes not on the eve of winning the Bundesliga in record time but on the back of a heartbreaking loss to Manchester City.
Hertha BSC meanwhile are suffering the everly cliched sophomore slump, sitting just two points above the relegation zone despite an active offseason that included a serious financial investment. While their offense is about league average, their defense is the fourth worst in the Bundesliga. This should be a fun game for Hertha BSC fans.
