Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 16th March 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion (Berlin).
Dortmund has the well-wishes of a million football fans. In their own way, they are trying to reform the Bundesliga from turning into a one-horse race. It’s true that they conceded a lot of ground to Bayern in the recent match-days, but with a few more rounds remaining, and having no European duties to look forward to the rest of the season (thanks, Spurs), we are in for a showdown between these two titans, Dortmund and Munich.
Hertha may like to try their luck against this set of visitors. But the timing is entirely messed up for them. The team is going through a rough patch, whereas the guests are determined and focussed to get the three points somehow. Despite having the home advantage, Berlin is on the back-foot this Saturday.
Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund Head-to-head (h2h)
- Four of the last five wins belong to Dortmund.
- Borussia has not failed to score in their last seven matches in a row.
- Six of the last nine wins at this venue also belong to the same team.
- Eight of the last thirteen encounters at this stadium had the home team failing to score.
Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
Berlin recorded just four wins in their last fifteen matches and just three in their last twelve at home. Also, they could only manage one of the last five h2h wins, and three of the last nine at this venue. Importantly, even with their home advantage, the team failed to score in eight of their last thirteen home h2h ties.
Dortmund, on the other hand, was unbeaten in 35 of their last 40 fixtures, and in 17 of their last 21 on the road. They also managed to find the back of the net in 33 of their last 38 ties, and in 18 of their last 22 games on the road. Adding these to the fact that they are desperately in pursuit of the Bundesliga title, with intense competition from Bayern Munich, it goes without saying that Marco Reus and his boys will be recording a thumping win this weekend.
