Champions Bayern Suffer Maiden Bundesliga Loss

Bundesliga 

Result: Hertha Berlin 2-0 Bayern Munich 

Date: 28 September 2018

Venue: Olympiastadion

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich were handed their first loss of the season after they went down 2-0 at the hands of Hertha Berlin on Friday evening.

The Bavarians were looking to get their campaign back on track after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Augsburg on Tuesday evening.

Niko Kovac's men enjoyed a lot of possession in the early stages, while the likes of Jerome Boateng and Robert Lewandowski went close with headed efforts inside the opening 20 minutes.

However, the hosts were awarded a penalty when Salomon Kalou was brought down by Boateng. Vedad Ibisevic stepped up and converted the spot-kick on 24 minutes.

The Bundeligsa champions did have a chance to pull  themselves level in the 39th minute, but Arjen Robben somehow fired over the crossbar with the net gaping from six-yards out.

Bayern were made to pay for that miss as Ondrej Duda doubled Hertha's lead on the stroke of halftime with a smashing finish from close range for his fifth goal of the season.

Kovac responded with a change shortly after the break as Robben, who scored during the week, made way for Thomas Muller.

Robert Kraft came to Hertha's rescue after 68 minutes, with the shot-stopper pulling off a vital stop to keep out Boateng's header at the near post.

The chances kept falling for Bayern but they were unable to capatilise, with Robert Lewandowski sending a header wide of the mark in the 81st minute.

Nevertheless, 2-0 was how the score remained as Bayern failed to secure three points for a second straight league game.
