Heavy favourites Bayern Munich trounce Hertha Berlin in a 4-0 rout

Published

Reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich ease past Hertha Berlin in a 4-0 win away at the Olympiastadion to keep up with league leaders RB Leipzig in a bid to retain their title for the 7th consecutive time.

Second-half goals from Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski, Thiago Alcantara and Ivan Perisic handed the Bavarians their first win of the new year.

Julian Nagelsmann’s Leipzig still lead the league with 40 points with Die Roten only four points behind whereas Berlin are four points above the relegation zone and sit in 14th place.

The first half provided limited action as Berlin, who are now led by ex-Bayern manager Jurgen Klinsmann, were able to neutralise Bayern’s prolific attack.

Good chances for Lewandoski and Philippe Coutinho went begging for Bayern as Hertha were unable to threaten Manuel Neuer at all.

The Bavarians upped their tempo in the second half with Perisic going close twice in quick succession. The Croatian had a curling effort headed off the line before heading an effort straight to the keeper.

Flick’s side’s pressure paid off in the 60th minute as Muller was able to find the opening goal. Leon Goretzka’s cross was headed down by Perisic for Muller to come and sweep in a good finish.

Lewandowski had thought he had doubled Bayern’s lead just three minutes later but VAR deemed that a foul in the build-up to his goal occurred so the goal was disallowed.

The Polish superstar was not to be denied though as ten minutes later, a penalty was awarded after Goretzka was brought down in the box during a corner. The marksman dispatched the penalty with ease to give Bayern some breathing space in the match.

Lewandowski’s goal started an onslaught from Bayern as Thiago scored just three minutes later. Goretzka played the Spaniard through and the midfielder thumped home a third.

Perisic got in the act as well by nodding home a deep cross by Muller to give Bayern their fourth and the third goal in the space of 11 minutes.

Bayern next welcome Schalke who are just three points behind with Klinsmann’s side going away to face Wolfsburg who have lost their last two games.
