Aron Wright - April 12, 2018

Hertha Berlin vs Koln
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30UK
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).

Hertha are going to host Koln in the match of 30th round in German Bundesliga. Home side wants to remain in the middle of the table, while the visitors are chasing for the last chance of taking valuable points in the relegation battle.

Hertha are currently sitting on the 10th position and they are safe from the relegation trouble. Although at some point in the season they were competitive for one of the places in Europa League, they couldn’t keep up the good form. Pal Dardai’s side booked the highest number of draws this season and they have been playing pretty tight. Their home performances haven’t been so good since they have celebrated only four victories and allowed too many tied games. In the last five clashes in front of home crowd they didn’t manage to book a win.

Since the beginning of the season, Koln have been sitting on the bottom of the table. Their awful first half of the campaign caused them severe troubles, and they are still experiencing those consequences. Although they have improved their form this spring, the visitors are still the worst placed team and Dominique Heintz and the lads are not managing to keep their defence tight. They managed to get back home with only two wins and they have conceded too many goals at away grounds. They need to try winning valuable points in this one since they are eight points behind the nearest safe spot and there’s only five games to go.

Hertha vs Koln: Head-to-head

Hertha have been more successful team recently, however in the past two seasons both sides managed to book two wins each. Three times out of their last four head to head clashes the crowd was able to see goals in both nets.

Hertha vs Koln: Prediction

The hosts are not playing under any pressure, but they don’t want to spill more points. since the visitors are going to try winning this one, the game could easily end with a draw.

Since the hosts are playing pretty tight and Koln are not so efficient, the match could stay under 2.5 margin.
