The rough time for Bayern Munich continues as the German defending champions were held back on the weekend in their first match in the post-Ancelotti era. The club from Bavaria sacked their previous boss Carlo Ancelotti just a few days ago but wasn’t able to bounce back to form in the Bundesliga despite goals from Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski giving them a two-goal advantage. Two second-half goals from Ondrej Duda and Salomon Kalou levelled the scoreline and from then, the Berliners were quite happy to settle for a point.

Here are the Bayern players rated in their shocking draw with Hertha.

Sven Ulreich (5.5/10): Yet another disappointing performance from the second choice goalkeeper. Ulreich was rumoured to be demoted as the third choice goalkeeper before the game, and it could very well be a possibility after a poor performance against Berlin.

Joshua Kimmich (6/10): Didn’t participate much in the attack as he had done recently. Although he did manage to stay resilient on the right, the offensive product was lacking from the young defender.

Jerome Boateng (6.5/10): Didn’t have a great game at all! On an occasion where Bayern needed their star players to step up, Boateng disappointed himself and his team with some poor defending. He was rightly subbed off late in the game. Although he did make some notable contribution in the attack, most notably, producing the assist for Hummels’ opener

Mats Hummels (6/10): Scored the opener with a thumping header from Boateng’s cross. However, the former Dortmund defender terribly flopped in defence. He was largely overwhelmed by the marauding runs from the Hertha attackers.

David Alaba (6/10): Showed some promise in the first half but his performance took a dip in the second half. He looked particularly shaky defensively for most of the second half as Matthew Leckie was becoming a real threat.

Javi Martinez (6.5/10): Moved back to his usual holding midfield position and looked really settled in the first half. However, he started becoming really shaky and couldn’t provide proper cover for the backline. His lack of pace didn’t help his cause either.

Corentin Tolisso (6.5/10): Looked very energetic throughout the game, often helping the other midfielders in the team with some decent positioning and passes. However, he was terrible in fending off the Hertha counterattacks.

Arjen Robben (6/10): Not the best of days for the Dutch winger who failed to find an opening to lay his trademark curling effort into the far post. He was subbed off later in the second half.

Thomas Muller (5/10): Was absolutely terrible throughout the game. Missed a sitter early on and then continued that with some terribly sloppy passes which lead to nowhere. His movements weren’t as sharp either, ultimately, providing Bayern with absolutely nothing in the final third.

Franck Ribery (6/10): Did not offer enough spite going forward and unfortunately, his story ended a little early as he stumbled on the ball to himself, which could prove to be very fatal and eventually restrain Bayern’s depth.

Robert Lewandowski (7/10): Actually did quite well not to give up hopes and constantly chased off the long balls from the backline. He was committed to lead his team forward and was rewarded with a goal in the second half. Unfortunately for him, the rest of the team weren’t up to the task.

Substitutes

Thiago Alcantara (8/10): Came on for Arjen Robben in the second half and made an instant impact. He provided a lot more creativity and stability in midfield.

Kingsley Coman (6.5/10): Didn’t do much to help Bayern on the offensive third. His runs may have been dangerous but the end product was always lacking,

Niklas Sule (NA): Subbed on for Jerome Boateng in the final stage of the game, Sule did well to stay resolute as Hertha constantly looked for the winner.
