Hertha Berlin vs Wolfsburg
Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
Top half rivals and Europa League hopefuls Hertha and Werder Bremen are set to lock horns in another interesting Bundesliga match-up on Saturday. Teams are level on points (28) together with sixth-placed Hoffenheim, meaning there is a lot at stake when they come across each other in the German capital.
The Old Lady will enter the tie as form favourites without doubts. They picked up four points from two league games in 2019 netting a fine five-goal tally. Striker Vedad Ibisevic was on the scoreline in both of these ties.
The Bosnian veteran forward and Slovakian attacking midfielder Ondrej Duda were the catalysts to team’s recent successes. They’ve combined the tally of 17 goals between them so far in the season and will no doubts be a huge threat to Wolfsburg’s goal here.
Hertha vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-head
Hertha lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into 49th encounter with the Wolves.
None of last three H2H games saw a winner, though.
This term’s meeting ended in a 2-2 draw at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA.
Hertha, however, have a fantastic home record in matches with Wolfsburg (12 wins, 7 draws and 4 defeats).
Hertha vs Wolfsburg: Prediction
Unlike the Old Lady who claimed four points from two games against Nurnberg and Schalke, the Wolves are still waiting to snatch their maiden point in the New Year. They proved out to be very easy to break down allowing five goals in successive losses to Schalke (2-1) and Bayer Leverkusen (0-3).
Knowing they will be up against the in-form attacking line of Hertha, we just have to fancy the home win at the sky-high 2.30 odds here. The H2H tradition in games at Olympiastadion also suggests Hertha’s success.
We will alternatively back Vedad Ibisevic to keep his spell of excellent form going and find the back of the net in third straight match. Bookies will pay 2.37 odds for such scenario.
