Hertha Berlin has liberated themselves from the curse cast on them by Bayern Munich since 2009. Berlin has never won a match against Bayern since 2009 but today broke that curse when they defeat Bayern Munich with two goals scored in the first half.
Berlin had started the match strong with experienced captain Salomon Kalou who was inspirational in the first half goals. The former Chelsea player used his experience to guide his team to a famous win. He was on for 70 minutes before he was substituted by the coach who was satisfied with his brilliant performance.
All efforts by Bayern’s front men – Lewandoski and Ribery were thwarted by the strong Berlin defense and their goal stopper Kraft who was very brilliant in ensuring that all the shots fired by the fierce looking players were prevented from crossing the goal line.
This famous win has further damaged the reputation of defending champions from scoring a goal in a match. The champions have never played a match without scoring a goal. Hertha Berlin will relax for the next 7 days before their next match while the wounded Bayern will face Ajax on Tuesday in a champions league match before their next Bundesliga match on Saturday. With this result both teams are on the same points (13) with Bayern leading with a goal difference after 6 matches.
