BAYERN GO TOP!

At least for 24 hours. Hertha gave it a good go, but that three-goal blitz in a first half for the ages was decisive. Choupo-Moting the man of the moment once more. How will Union Berlin respond in Leverkusen tomorrow?

HERTHA PROBING AGAIN

Just signs from Hertha that they can get something out of this as Neuer gobbles up a cross at the feet of Lukebakio. It would be some comeback, if they can pull it off.

UPA SAYS 'NO'

Lukebakio threatens to run in on goal, but Upamecano channels his inner Davies with a superb recovery challenge. A fraction late, and he'd have been sent off. What a season he's having at the heart of the Bayern defence!

He cannot stop scoring! Bayern with a quick one-two to leave Hertha with a mountain to climb. Choupo-Moting reacts first with a poacher's finish after a Goretzka shot was blocked. Within what feels like seconds, the Cameroonian nets a near carbon copy second goal, sliding in after Gnabry's cross was half cleared.

SAFE HANDS NEUER

Lukebakio races through on the left and lets fly with a rising shot towards the near post. Neuer is across to palm out for a corner. That might have been going wide anyway but the returning Bayern shot stopper wasn't taking any chances.

HERTHA'S DEFENSIVE CHALLENGE

The immediate task for Hertha here will be for Oliver Christensen and his defence to keep the visitors at bay in the first half. Bayern have netted a league-high 24 of their 38 goals so far this season in the first half of games. Hertha, meanwhile, have scored just four times inside the opening 45 minutes of their games.

CHOUPO-MOTING'S GOAL

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has been on fire of late, the Cameroon international scoring eight goals in his last nine games. The 33-year-old - who makes his 50th Bundesliga appearance for Bayern today - is looking to score in a fourth successive German top-flight game for the first time.

WATCH: BREMEN 1-0 HERTHA

Hertha were undone by a late Fülkrug goal on Matchday 12 that leaves them only two points above the relegation zone. The Old Lady have won just twice all season, and have claimed only one point across their previous seven meetings with Bayern, losing their last five in a row.

MORE ON THOSE TEAMS

Neuer returns in goal for Bayern after three weeks out. Nagelsmann also recalls Davies, Goretzka and Gnabry after resting them from the start against Inter. Hernandez and Sane return to the bench, but Müller misses out once more. As for Hertha, Selke comes in for the injured Jovetic, while midfielder Boetius is preferred to forward Kanga.

WATCH: BAYERN 6-2 MAINZ

Bayern ran roughshod over Hertha coach Sandro Schwarz's former club last weekend. Sadio Mane was one of six different goalscorers as the defending champions regained top spot for 24 hours. They can do the same again today, with leaders Union Berlin in action against Xabi Alonso's Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday.

NAGELSMANN WANTS MORE OF THE SAME

"We need to take the momentum into the Bundesliga," said Julian Nagelsmann after Bayern completed a perfect UEFA Champions League group stage for a competition record third time with their 2-0 win over Inter Milan in midweek. "I'm confident we can take that spirit with us into the new year."

CAPITAL CALLING

Hertha Berlin face a thankless task when in-form Bayern Munich visit the capital on Saturday. The Old Lady are hovering precariously above the relegation zone, while Bayern have reeled off three straight Bundesliga wins to cut the gap on leaders Union Berlin to a single point. Can Hertha do their city rivals a favour, or will the big red machine steamroller the opposition once again? There's only one way to find out!
