Bayern won their fifth straight game in all competitions by crushing Bochum at the Rewir Power Stadium last Saturday. The Bavarian giants are now just two points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen and a single point behind Schalke, who currently occupy second place.
Bayern took the lead in the 23rd minute through Mario Gomez, who slid in Ivica Olic’s cross from close range. Ten minutes later, Gomez’s cross was diverted by Mergim Mavraj into his own goal. Just before half time, Bastian Schweinsteiger collected a pass from Philipp Lahm and squared the ball for the unmarked Olic, who completed the simplest of tap ins. The Croatian forward made it 4-0 when he headed home Helger Badstuber’s cross on 50 minutes and Daniel Pranjic scored number five on 56 minutes, hammering the ball into the roof of the net after some good work from Lahm. Bochum managed to get a late consolation through Christian Fuchs’ free kick.
Hertha held leaders Bayer Leverkusen to a 2-2 draw in their last game. Colombian striker Adrian Ramos scored the first and the last goals of the game for Hertha, who also had midfielder Gojko Kacar sent off for two bookable offences. Kacar is therefore suspended for this weekend’s trip to Munich.
Hertha’s last visit to Bayern ended in a heavy 4-1 loss for the Blue-Whites. Bayern have scored fifteen goals in Hertha’s last four trips to the Allianz Arena, and will be strong favourites to add to the woes of Freidhelm Funkel’s men. Sign up today and watch Bayern vs Hertha Berlin live.
