Hertha Berlin vs Hoffenheim
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-off at 14.30 UK/ 15.30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion, Berlin.
Hertha, lying just below the European spots in the Bundesliga table, hosts the in-form Hoffenheim, currently at the sixth spot.
Hertha was humiliated by possibly the second to worst team in the whole league, Dusseldorf, last weekend. Four goals were put past Hertha, while they could only return back one. Wins are a rare commodity for Dusseldorf, and against a top-tier team like Hertha, it seems sweeter.
Hertha has not psychologically recovered from the loss yet, and it will surely be playing at the back of the players’ heads when they host the higher-placed Hoffenheim.
Hoffenheim defeated Augsburg, at home, last weekend, in a nervy affair. The scores were level at 0-0 till the 65th minute before Kramaric put Hoffenheim ahead. But Augsburg responded well with an equalizer just four minutes later. However, Hoffenheim held on and scored the winner in the 84th minute.
