Hertha Berlin vs Hoffenheim Prediction
Ante Covic’s men dropped points for the first time in four games after Werder Bremen managed to hold the hosts to a 1-1 draw. The home side failed to make much of an impact in that clash and managed no more than two measly shots on target throughout the ninety minutes.
Hoffenheim, on the other hand, will be making the trip to Olympiastadion on the back of an impressive two-match winning streak. The visitors took down Shalke by a 2-0 scorecard, in their last clash at home, while on the road they pulled off a stunning 2-1 victory over the reigning champions. Furthermore, the away side have not admitted defeat in any of their previous three outings.
Hertha Berlin have been recording back to back wins at home as well. Be that as it may, it needs saying that both of those victories came against sides that are currently dwelling below them in the ladder.
It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have not emerged victoriously against this foe in their past three clashes here. Taking into account Hoffenheim’s solid run of form on the road, Hertha Berlin have little or no chance of coming out on top.
Nevertheless, given that their last two meetings in a running here have been ending in a draw, a double chance is sizing up to be the safest punt in this one.
Additionally, both teams are guilty of being leaky at the back. The hosts are yet to keep a clean sheet at home, while Hoffenheim have managed no more than one clean sheet in their last four trips on the road.
Hence, count on goals down each in this one without fail.
