Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
Hertha Berlin are finally starting to show promise in their domestic campaign. Their last clash on the road saw them take down Bayer Leverkusen with a narrow 1-0 scoreline, prior to which got the better of Freiburg at home by the very same scorecard.
Be that as it may, the home side have come out on top just five times this season, and are currently thirteenth on the ladder, four points shy of falling into the relegation zone.
On the other hand, Borussia Monchengladbach will be making the trip to Olympiastadion on the back of a 2-0 win over Paderborn at home. The visitors have stumbled just once in their last four games in the Bundesliga, and are, at the moment, playing second fiddle to RB Leipzig, albeit only on goal difference.
Furthermore, Hertha Berlin have been erratic on home soil this term. They have secured the bragging rights just once in their last four games here. And have garnered no more than three points from a possible twelve as well.
It is also worth noting that two out of the four defeats for the hosts here, have come against sides that are dwelling in the top five. Given that Borussia Monchengladbach made no mistake in picking up the win in their last visit here as well, Hertha Berlin are the underdogs to come out on top this weekend.
Be that as it may, the guests have dropped points thrice on the road already. Hence, the safest punt in this one would have to be a double chance.
Additionally, only one of the last eight Bundesliga games at Olympiastadion have failed to produce more than 2.5 goals on the scoreboards. Moreover, four of their previous five h2h meetings here have also been high scoring affairs.
Hence, count on no dearth of goals come Saturday either.
