BAY vs HER Dream 11 Team Prediction: Bundesliga’s 2019-20 season gets way with defending champions clashing heads against Hertha Berlin.
The newest sojourn of the Bundesliga is finally upon us with Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin beginning things in the upcoming edition of the league. The league opener sees last year’s champions Bayern Munich clash heads against 11 th placed Hertha Berlin in a match which looks set to be an extremely one sided one.
For Bayern Munich, the previous campaign was all about coming back from a hefty deficit after the break and upstaging Borussia Dortmund to clinch their 28 th title. Struggling at the halfway mark in what was a topsy-turvy title battle, Bayern Munich ended up capitalising on Borussia Dortmund’s wavering form in the second half of the season, going on an incredible spree of wins as Borussia Dortmund fell apart.
And in a bid to strengthen ahead of the new season, Bayern Munich have ended up adding the services of Ivan Perisic, Pavard and Lucas Hernandez to their side as they look to retain their league title and push for a real challenge in the Champions League. The side couldn’t have asked for a better match either to side their imminent soiree with the club facing off against a Hertha Berlin side who were bereft of goal scoring ideas in the previous edition.
It saw them suffer a spate of 10 draws, a maligned run of results which saw the side end outside the top 10, a mark the club will be looking to break this season. They indulged in a hectic transfer window as they went about ringing in the services of Dedryck Boyata, Dodi Lukebakio and Daishawn Redan from Celtic, Watford and Chelsea respectively along with getting in Liverpool’s Marko Grujic on load.
BAY vs HER Dream 11 Team Prediction
1) Ivan Perisic should be named his side’s squad for today although he’s most likely to start this match as a substitute for Bayern Munich.
2) Marvin Plattenhardt, Arne Maier, Javairo Dilrosun and Peter Pekarik are all out injured for Hertha Berlin.
Probable Playing XI
Neuer, Kimmich, Sule, Pavard, Alaba, Tolisso, Thiago, Goretzka, Muller, Lewandowski, Coman
Jarstein, Stark, Rekik, Torunarigha, Leckie, Grujic, Darida, Mittelstadt, Duda, Ibisevic, Kalou
Dream 11 Picks for BAY vs HER
Goal-keepers for BAY vs HER Dream 11
With Bayern Munich not looking the best at the back right now, conceding goals at will in their preseason encounters, a setback which saw them lose the DFB Pokal Super Cup to Borussia Dortmund, a cleansheet could be off in this match. It’s this eventuality which sees us rope in Hertha Berlin’s Rune Jarstein with the shot stopper set to face an onslaught of shots, something which should see him indulge in some nice save points for us today.

Defenders for BAY vs HER Dream 11
Despite us speaking about how a cleansheet for either side looks tough today, if any side are going to pull it off here, it’s going to be Bayern Munich. It’s a narrative which falls down solely to the identity of their opposition with Hertha Berlin being drab when it comes to stringing together attacking soirees over the last season.
Keeping this in mind, we have opted for an entire trivalent of picks from their backline with centreback Niklas Sule being our first pick. The two fullbacks in new signing Benjamin Pavard and Joshua Kimmich also come in for us owing to their role in the side’s attacking manoeuvres.
At a time when the side are facing a serious dearth of wide players in attack, these two will be asked to keep marauding up and down the pitch and could easily deliver an assist today.
Mid-fielders for BAY vs HER Dream 11
One of the likeliest goal scorers for his side today, Kingsley Coman is our first pick from Bayern Munich. Corentin Tolisso comes in as well after scoring once in the preseason matches and us expecting him to be heavily involved in the engrossing attacks his side will craft today.
From the opposition we have opted for both their CDMs Marko Grujic and Mathew Leckie. The two defensive midfielders form a pivotal pivot in the centre of the park for their side, one which will be vital to shutting down Bayern Munich today and blocking and intercepting the passes and crosses they try to conjure up.
On the attacking side of things we have gone ahead with Ondrej Duda to come in for us for the side.
Strikers for BAY vs HER Dream 11
He was shut down by Borussia Dortmund in the side’s previous encounter but with goals in almost every preseason fixture, Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski looks to be the player likeliest to core for them. He and Thomas Muller both come in from the side with us expecting Bayern Munich to pile on the goals today.
