Hertha Berlin vs Freiburg Prediction
Hertha Berlin picked up their first point in six Bundesliga games last week after Eintracht Frankfurt managed to hold them a 2-2 draw. Despite taking an initial two-goal lead in that matchup, the hosts were caught off guard and punished by their counterparts who found the back of the net through Martin Hinteregger and Sebastian Rode.
Nevertheless, owing to their poor form, the home side are currently sitting on the verge of falling into the relegation zone.
On the other hand, Freiburg will be making the trip to Olympiastadion on the back of a narrow 1-0 win over Wolfsburg at home. The guests have now admitted defeat just once in their last six fixtures in the top flight and are sporting a thirteen point cushion over the counterparts for the weekend as well.
It is also worth mentioning that Freiburg have stumbled just twice on the road this season. In sharp contrast, Hertha Berlin have been recording back to back defeats in their past three games here.
As such the visiting contingent should be able to deprive Hertha Berlin of all three points in this one.
However, it needs saying that their last two clashes with this foe here have finished in a tie. Freiburg have also shared the spoils in three of their past seven outings. As such, the safest choice would be backing a double chance.
Furthermore, Freiburg have been a nervous bunch in their own defensive third, especially on the road. The away side have conceded ten goals from their previous five outings on the trot.
Meanwhile, half of the twenty goals for Hertha so far have come from their matchups on home soil. To top it off, neither side have kept a clean sheet in two out of their previous three h2h meetings here.
Hence, it is certainly well within reason to count on both teams to get their names up on the score sheet this weekend.
