Hertha Berlin vs Hannover
Date: Sunday, 21 April 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
Two most out-of-form teams will drop curtain on Matchday No 30 in the elite class of German football on Sunday afternoon. Rock-bottomed Hannover are catching their last train for a potential glimmer of hope here. They travel to the capital with a seven-point deficit to 16th-placed Stuttgart and just five games left to play.
Nevertheless, the Reds are not pulling up any trees coming into this tie. They lost eight on the bounce in the league scoring just one goal in past three Bundesliga affairs. The latest of failures for Thomas Doll’s troops came last weekend when they lost 0-1 at home to Borussia Monchengladbach.
Hertha won’t enter the match in much higher spirits either. They lost five on the spin and dropped into the bottom half of standings as a consequence. Pal Dardai’s men also found goals hard to come by recently. Much like their counterparts, the Old Lady notched just one goal in last three league games.
Hertha Berlin vs Hannover: Head-to-head
Hertha lead the head to head tie by 9 wins coming into 52nd meeting with the Reds.
The Old Lady won four, drew one and lost one of past six encounters with Hannover.
Hertha were much more successful in the history of home clashes against the Reds (12 wins, 7 draws and 4 defeats in 23 meetings in Berlin).
Hertha Berlin vs Hannover: Prediction
It’s hard to give accurate predictions for a match with teams who have both lost each of last five games they played. Hertha should be favourites because of the difference in quality which clearly goes in their favour, but they have nothing to play for in remaining five rounds.
Hannover are desperate for points, but they have a dreadful away record of 0 wins, 4 draws and 10 defeats in 14 league matches on the road. They shipped as many as 40 goals in the process. We will go for the mere quality and the head to head tradition and back Hertha to win as the main betting option at 1.53 odds.
