Hertha challenge champs Bayern iron-grip

BERLIN: High-flying Hertha Berlin will attempt to loosen Bayern Munich’s iron-grip in the Bundesliga on Wednesday in the German league’s top-of-the-table clash.

Hertha’s 2-0 win at home to Schalke on Sunday means Berlin and Bayern, the only German clubs who still have 100 per cent records with three wins from three, will square off at Munich’s Allianz Arena. “We’re enormously happy that we now have nine points, but Bayern is a completely diff erent opponent,”

admitted Hertha’s left-back Marvin Plattenhardt. “We’ll need a really good day.” The German league has a round of midweek matches with the highlight being Bayern’s hosting of Hertha while Borussia Dortmund, who have posted back-to-back 6-0 wins at Legia Warsaw and Darmstadt, are at Wolfsburg on Tuesday.
