Status: 01/23/2022 8:05 p.m

FC Bayern easily broke through Berlin’s defensive wall and is heading into the Bundesliga’s second winter break as the leaders with a six-point lead.

Corentin Tolisso (25th minute), Thomas Müller (45th), Leroy Sané (74th) and Serge Gnabry (79th) scored the goals on Sunday (23.01.22) to make the league leaders 4-1 (2-0). against Hertha, which was unsuccessfully focused on damage limitation. Thanks to several saves by goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow, the Berliners did not concede a Bavarian five-pack like in the first leg. Jurgen Ekkelenkamp (80th) scored the late Berlin goal.

“We wanted to put Hertha under pressure from the start and we did that,” said Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer on the Sportschau microphone, “we can be satisfied with what we showed today.” “With the exception of the goal, which was absolutely not necessary and spoils the great result, the first half was probably our strongest,” Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann told Sportschau, “but overall it was a very, very good game.”

Findings: Hertha is not a Bayern pursuer

With the returnees Lucas Hernandez and Kingsley Coman as well as Sané, who was in the starting XI for the first time after his corona infection, the Munich team dominated the entire game in the Olympic Stadium. In its current condition, Hertha could not fulfill the faint hopes of Borussia Dortmund as Bayern’s last pursuer for a Munich misstep.

The Berliners go as table 13. with only three points ahead of the relegation rank in the two-week break. After that, points must be scored urgently against VfL Bochum and SpVgg Greuther Fürth. “We want to be brave,” said Hertha coach Tayfun Korkut. With the Berliners, it looked like eight to nine players in two chains closed the spaces a maximum of 30 meters in front of their own goal.

Two teenagers against the Bavarian power storm

In the back row, two teenagers, Linus Gechter (17) and Marton Dardai (19), were forced to play against the power storm around record man Robert Lewandowski after the failures of Niklas Stark and Jordan Torunarigha.

The Berlin defence, still crumbling in the 2:3 in the derby against 1. FC Union on Wednesday, was at least temporarily solid thanks to this Korkut measure. Goalkeeper Schwolow also parried against Müller (8th), Sané (12th) and Coman (16th).

The Hertha attacks were manageable. Ishak Belfodil (21st) kept goalkeeper Manuel Neuer moving with a header. Bayern also had plenty of chances between goals scored from close range by Tolisso and Müller.

Game of cat and mouse

The game between Katz’ (Munich) and Maus (Berlin) continued in the second half. Sané (47th), Gnabry (49th/61st) and Müller (65th) had the best chances. Vladimir Darida (51st) missed the possible appearance of tension at the biggest Hertha opportunity. Sané used the only Schwolow mistake to score the third goal, Gnabry followed up before Ekkelenkamp took advantage of a Munich inattention. The Berlin fans took it ironically for a long time and sang: “Here we go”.
