German Bundesliga – Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 22nd October 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald Arena, Freiburg.
The two sides that enjoyed the previous campaign but are now grappling will collide as Freiburg welcome Hertha Berlin.
The visitors played in UEFA Europa League on Thursday and the hosts will be aiming to exploit Hertha’s fatigue in order reduce out the quality gap.
The home team is in the relegation playoff zone with only seven points collected. For Freiburg, the defense is their main problem as they allowed 16 goals but also on the other side of the pitch as they netted only 5 so far.
Freiburg lost several key players during the summer transfer window so their main goal in the current season is to secure the survival in German top flight.
Dardai’s men are sitting in the disappointing 13th place with only nine points earned. Hertha is not steamrolling the opposition on the home turf which seems to be their main issue as they accumulated the vast majority of points on the home turf, back in the 2016/17 season.
On Thursday, Hertha suffered an unexpected defeat from the Ukrainian Zorya Luhansk. The aforementioned 2-1 defeat certainly impaired the mood in the locker room the Hungarian manager might have some trouble with motivating his men.
