Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Prediction
The high-scoring head to head trend could come to an end this Saturday. Both teams have been fairly easy to break down so far in the season, conceding two goals each in three opening rounds.
Gladbach gained a huge depth in the final third with the arrival of Alassane Plea who had one assist in the mentioned victory over Schalke seven days ago. However, we have to mention that Gladbach generally played much worse on travels last season. They lost 9, drew 4 and won 4 of 17 away games in the campaign.
The Foals started the new season with two home wins and one draw which came on the road (1-1 to Augsburg). Knowing Hertha have been in good touch at the beginning of the season, we have to try with the hosts not to lose at the 1.44 odds.
