Champions Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will aim to bounce back following losses in the preceding matchweek. Watch Bundesliga live!
Reigning German football champions Bayern Munich will look to get their Bundesliga campaign back on track after an unexpected loss last week when they take on Hertha Berlin on Sunday.
The Champions League winners were on an enviable 31-match unbeaten streak before they suffered their first loss since 2019 to Hoffenheim last week.
Hansi Flick’s side, however, bounced back to clinch the German Super Cup with a close 3-2 win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday. Bayern Munich will be keen to continue that form in the Bundesliga too.
Standing in Bayern’s way on Sunday will be the Hertha Berlin side, who struggled for form throughout the last campaign.
The 2020-21 season too hasn’t been kind to them so far as a convincing win over Werder Bremen, who survived the relegation last season, was followed by a 1-3 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt.
Meanwhile, Bayern’s title rivals Borussia Dortmund will welcome Freiburg to the Signal Iduna Park as they look to return to winning ways following a loss to FC Augsburg a week ago.
Despite enjoying the better share of the opportunities against Augsburg, Die Schwarzgelben were punished for their lacklustre approach in front of the goal.
While the likes of Erling Håland, Jadon Sancho and Axel Witsel created enough openings, none could find the back of the net against Augsburg, something that Dortmund head coach Lucien Favre will be keen to rectify ahead of their Saturday’s tie.
