Market: Thomas Muller to score anytime
Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport
With a real chance to extend their buffer at the top of the Bundesliga table this weekend, Bayern Munich will make the trip to a struggling Hertha Berlin on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Hertha Berlin might have marked their return from the festive break with a victory against rock-bottom Schalke last month, it appears that was just an ever so minor bounce for Pál Dárdai’s side. Still battling it out in the drop zone and a side that really appears to be in freefall, the Old Lady were hit with another thumping defeat last weekend. Throwing away the lead and eventually suffering a 3-1 loss away at a high-flying Eintracht Frankfurt, Hertha have collected just a single Bundesliga point from their last five straight top-flight contests. With their extended issues highlighted by a 1-0 defeat against Bundesliga debutants Arminia Bielefeld, Friday’s hosts have also gained a reputation for their glaring problems at the back. Shipping 10 strikes in just their last three contests, Hertha face another stern test when opening the weekend fixtures.
As for the visitors, despite crashing out of the DFP Pokal thanks to that stunning defeat against lower-league Holstein Kiel last month, Bayern Munich have managed to bounce back in eye-catching fashion. Extending their buffer at the top of the table to eight points and enjoying a four-match Bundesliga winning run, it could be well worth keeping an eye out for a red-hot Thomas Muller on Friday night. While the likes of attacking talisman Robert Lewandowski might be continuing to steal most of the headlines at the Allianz, the German international once again found the net in Bayern’s 4-1 romp against Hoffenheim last weekend. In fact, now bagging himself four strikes in as many Bundesliga appearances, there is no doubt that Muller should be confident of extending on his tally when he travels to the relegation scrappers on Friday night.
