Bayern Munich came away with a thumping victory against Hertha BSC on Matchday 18 at the Olympiastadion.

The first half of this match was messy and sloppy for Bayern Munich, but the hosts could not capitalize on their many mistakes. The team left a lot to be desired as there were very few chances and there was indecisiveness in the final third.

The second half was a completely different story. Hansi Flick made some halftime tactical adjustments and the team upped their game. Passes were more accurate and faster resulting in being more direct and more chances. Starting in the 60th minute, Bayern started scoring and didn’t stop until there were four on the scoreboard.

This was a great start to the 2020 season with goals coming from Thomas Muller (60′), Robert Lewandowski (73′), Thiago Alcantara (76′), and Ivan Perisic (84′) and Manuel Neuer getting a clean sheet. This win will help in setting the tone for the second half of the season. Here are four takeaways from the match.
