Hertha Berlin vs Wolfsburg
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion (Berlin).
Hertha Berlin certainly turned quite a few heads the other week as they made it out of the Allianz Arena with a point in hand. The hosts, who endured a mid-table finish last time out, fought back from being a goal down against a fairly strong Bayern Munich line up and managed to hold their counterparts to a 2-2 draw at the end of the ninety minutes.
Wolfsburg did just enough in their opener against the freshly promoted FC Koln side and subsequently bagged all three points with a 2-1 scoreline in their favor. The clash was certainly a tight run of affairs, with FC Koln breaching their opponents in the dying minutes of stoppage.
The visitors will have to put on a much better performance in their clash against the in-form Hertha Berlin though, especially as they will be away from their comforts of home in this one.

On home soil, Hertha Berlin have lost just once in their last three Bundesliga games. Additionally, Wolfsburg have got the better of the hosts on just one occasion in their last five visits to this venue and have admitted defeat twice albeit by narrow margins as well.
Taking into account that they have also come out on top just once in their last five outings in the domestic campaign, a win for Hertha Berlin is definitely in the reckoning.
Out of their last six all-time meetings with each other, three of their clashes have seen over 2.5 goals on the scorecards. With either side getting their names on the scoresheet without fail in their opening game as well, expect nothing short of a high scoring matchup when the two teams lock horns this weekend.
