Bayern Munich are set to host Hertha Berlin at the Allianz Arena on Sunday in their next Bundesliga fixture.
Bayern Munich come into this game following a surprising 4-1 loss to Hoffenheim last Sunday in their most recent Bundesliga fixture. A brace from Croatia international Andrej Kramaric and goals from centre-back Ermin Bicakcic and Israeli forward Moanes Dabbur sealed the victory for Sebastian Hoeness' side.
Germany international Joshua Kimmich scored the consolation goal for Bayern Munich.
Hertha Berlin, on the other hand, lost 3-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt last Saturday at the Olympiastadion. Goals from Portuguese striker Andre Silva, Bas Dost and Sebastian Rode secured the three points for Eintracht Frankfurt. A Martin Hinteregger own goal proved to be scant consolation for Hertha Berlin.
