Bayern Munich have returned to the summit of the Bundesliga ahead of its rival Borussia Dortmund after defeating Hertha Berlin 2-0 on April 30, 2023.
Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman scored the goals to give Thomas Tuchel a sign of relief and put an end to their dismal run.
Bayern Munich are now above Borussia Dortmund with one point and have a superior goal difference.
With four matches to play, Bayern Munich may be crowned the winner of the German Bundesliga for the 11th time in a row.
Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, wouldn’t give up at this stage and are ready to make it the most interesting title race ever.
How Bayern Munich defeated Hertha Berlin to return to the top of the table
Tuchel started his best squad in a must-win match, and the players came into the game against Hertha Berlin with a different mindset.
Joao Cancelo hit the first shot on target in the first minute of the match, but it was comfortably saved by Hertha Berlin’s Oliver Christensen.
In the first 23 minutes of the match, Bayern Munich had 75% ball possession, with Hertha Berlin having difficulty controlling the ball in Bayern Munich’s half.
Kingsley Coman forced Christensen into another save. The Frenchman caused a lot of problems on the left side of Hertha Berlin’s defense.
In the 39th minute, Sadio Mane saw his attempt saved by Christensen, who was the reason why the score line remained friendly to Hertha Berlin.
Bayern Munich’s first goal came in the 68th minute from a Serge Gnabry header after receiving a perfect cross from Joshua Kimmich.
The second goal came in the 79th minute, with Coman finally forcing the ball past the goalkeeper, and it was assisted again by Kimmich, who was the unsung hero of the match.
What Next for Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin?
The Bavarians have to take every game as a final because a drop in point may give Borussia Dortmund the chance of going to the top again.
However, they face the 12th placed Werder Bremen on May 6, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. It will surely be a difficult match, but Tuchel has all his players back in form.
Winning the league this season with Bayern Munich will be a successful one for Tuchel.
Relegation-battling Hertha Berlin will face VfB Stuttgart on May 6, 2023. It is a must-win game for Hertha Berlin in their bid to survive relegation.
However, three points will not be enough for Hertha Berlin to escape relegation because they are currently in 18th place with 22 points. A win against VfB Stuttgart will keep them in that position.
