Hertha Berlin vs Paderborn
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion (Berlin).
These two are the only ones yet to register a win on the board and expectedly are placed at the bottom-most of the table. Both lost all of their matches in the competition so far, bar one. And surprisingly both these games where they secured draws were against top squads.
Berlin registered a tough draw against Bayern of all squads, and that too at the Allianz Arena. Meanwhile, Paderborn scored their draw against Wolfsburg, on the road as well.
The guests, Steffen Baumgart’s men are a new addition to this competition and are finding life tough in the upper-division. While last campaign saw them blasting away oppositions in the 2.Bundesliga, they have been unable to do so this time around at the top.
This one weakness will be the most targeted by the hosts for the day. They are desperate to shed the bottom-most position, and their surplus in experience over this opponent could help them this weekend.
Hertha Berlin vs Paderborn Head-to-head (h2h)

- Every single meeting at this stadium had the home team scoring twice or more.
Hertha Berlin vs Paderborn Prediction
The guests are relatively inexperienced in this top division, due to their stint in the 2.Bundesliga, and on top of that, they are on the road as well. The team is winless so far on the road this whole season, and in fact, the last away win they posted was back in April.
And to be frank, the squad is yet to script out a victory in all competitions in 2019-20 and conceded thrice or more in six of their former seven overall match-ups.
Going on, h2h clashes put forth the hosts as favorites as well. The reason being – the previous two such battles had home wins, and four of the former five such wins went to the hosts too.
Moreover, Hertha has not failed to find the back of the net against this opponent in the last nine years, and at this venue, have been extremely dominant.
In fact, the Berlin outfit boasts of a 100% unbeaten record in h2h encounters and scored twice or more in every such tie.
As these stats obviously suggest, rely on the hosts scripting out a satisfying victory.
