One of the most exciting matches takes place in the German capital, where Hertha welcome Schalke 04. Both teams share the same dream – qualifying for one of UEFA competitions in the next season, so this match could be quite significant at the end of the season.

Hertha Berlin

Hertha are sitting in the 10th position at the standings with 9 points accumulated so far. They have continued in the same fashion as the previous season – making Olympiastadion a fortress since they stand unbeaten after four Bundesliga matches.

The hosts are quite strong on the home soil but they have allowed at least a goal in the last three outings.

FC Schalke 04

Tedesco’s side is just a point above Hertha with 10 points collected. The visitors are without a win in the last three games but it is worth mentioning that they faced Bayern Munich, TSG Hoffenheim, and Bayer Leverkusen.

The Royal Blues are very eager to get back into the top of the standings and play again in the European competitions, so motivational factor is always present for Schalke’s players.
