Bayern Munich 2-0 Hertha Berlin: Player Rating as Tuchel’s side leapfrog Dortmund at Bundesliga summit


Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman goals earned Bayern Munich a 2-0 win over Hertha Berlin that lifted them to the top of the Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich defeated Hertha Berlin 2-0 at the Allianz Arena on Sunday to leapfrog Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga.

Dortmund’s 1-1 draw with Bochum on Friday opened the door for Bayern to strike and the 10-in-a-row champions almost capitalized against the bottom of the division.

After being largely frustrated by his opponents, Serge Gnabry headed in from Joshua Kimmich’s sloppy pass to open the scoring in the 69th minute.

Kingsley Coman added the second 10 minutes later as Bayern moved one point ahead of Dortmund with four games to go in Germany’s top flight.

Bayern scored the most first-half goals of any Bundesliga team this term, while Hertha conceded the most, but the hosts could not find a way past Oliver Christensen.

The Hertha goalkeeper impressively denied Gnabry and Coman, with the latter also denying a penalty shout after being challenged by Maximilian Mittelstadt.

Sadio Mane missed chances either side of half-time, although Tuchel’s side eventually found a way through 20 minutes from time in Bavaria.

Kimmich kicked the ball into the area and Gnabry buried a diving header past Christensen to lift Bayern.

Christensen did well to keep out Coman’s effort shortly afterwards, but the France international made no mistake as he controlled Kimmich’s pass over the top to seal the win.
