Hertha Berlin vs Fortuna Dusseldorf
Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
Mid-table sides Hertha BSC and Fortuna Dusseldorf are set to take on each other on Saturday afternoon at Olympiastadion Berlin. The match will by no means have a huge impact on the league standings at the end of the season as both sides have all but secured survival in the elite class of the German football.
The clash will rather have more of a psychological significance, especially for the hosts who are desperate to bounce back from recent failures. The Old Lady shipped five goals in a catastrophic 5-0 defeat to 3rd-placed RB Leipzig last weekend. It was their third successive defeat, each of which saw Pal Dardai’s men ship at least two goals.
Such dreadful defensive form of Hertha’s will be the music to the ears of Rouwen Hennings, Benito Raman & company. Hennings inspired Fortuna’s 3-1 home win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the previous round with a brace.
