Hertha Berlin are looking for salvation points on Thursday afternoon when they welcome mid-table Freiburg to Olympiastadion Berlin for the lone Bundesliga affair in mid-week.
Hertha will continue their well congested schedule three days following the away clash against Mainz. They have not competed in three straight weeks prior to Monday’s trip to OPEL ARENA.
The coronavirus hysteria seems to have gone from Hertha’s dressing room as the team led by Pal Dardai are ready for a very tough run of 5 fixtures in just 13 days.
To make things worse for Die Alte Dame, they are in desperate need for points while sitting second from bottom with just three rounds remaining.
Hertha do have a couple of games in hand on the rest of the division, though. However, they can ill afford a failure here against non-motivated Freiburg who have nothing but pride to play for until the end of the campaign.
The lack of motivation has caused somewhat of a drop in Freiburg’s recent form. The Breisgau have been particularly struggling to perform on travels lately, losing three on the spin away from home. Christian Streich’s men have scored no more than one goal in the process.
Hertha Berlin vs Freiburg Head-to-head
The draw has been by far the most common of the outcomes in H2H games between these two sides in Berlin. It happened in 7 of 14 H2H clashes at Olympiastadion Berlin.
The home court advantage played a significant role in the most recent history of this match-up as each of the last four meetings between the two outfits ended in home wins.
Four of the last five head to head outings saw goals at both ends.
Freiburg celebrated a demolishing 4-1 victory when they met Hertha in the first half of the season.
Hertha Berlin vs Freiburg Prediction
Top flight survival is on the line for the hosts here and we sincerely doubt they will drop the ball against the non-motivated opposition.
Freiburg have recently played other relegation strugglers Mainz and Arminia Bielefeld and they lost both ties with an identical 1-0 scoreline.
This is kind of a scenario we are expecting to see on Thursday afternoon in the capital.
The home win is our main betting option at the odds of 1.95. We will also back the hosts to keep a clean sheet at the 2.75 odds.
