Hertha Berlin vs Stuttgart
Date: Saturday, 4 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
Stuttgart picked up a golden three-pointer seven days ago when they kept their net untouched in a 1-0 victory over Champions League hopefuls Borussia Monchengladbach.
The win kept Die Schwaben five points clear off Nurnberg in the red zone. It is a healthy advantage for Nico Willig’s men with only three games left to play.
However, Stuttgart are also six points shy of Schalke who claimed a surprising 2-4 victory over Borussia Dortmund away at Signal-Iduna-Park last time out.
Can Stuttgart build on the fine defensive showing against the Foals and keep second consecutive clean sheet on Saturday afternoon against Hertha BSC.
Would not be a shocking scenario if we know the hoists have been struggling badly for goals of late. Pal Dardai’s men scored just one goal in past five league outings.
They head into this off the back of two successive goalless draws to Hannover and Eintracht Frankfurt.
Hertha Berlin vs Stuttgart: Head-to-head
Hertha have an opportunity to make it all square at 26 wins apiece in their head to head statistics with Stuttgart with a three-pointer here.
Each of last five head to head affairs saw home teams snatching the spoils.
The Old Lady won 20, drew 7 and lost just 6 of 33 home clashes with Die Schwaben, meaning the home court advantage played a huge role in the history of this match-up.
Hertha Berlin vs Stuttgart: Prediction
Looking at teams’ recent spell of form, the Under 2.5 goals FT has to be the primary betting option here.
Both Hertha and Stuttgart are struggling badly for creativity in the final third coming into this affair. They’ve both improved their defensive displays lately which is why we see a tremendous value in backing fewer than three goals to be scored at Olympiasadion Berlin at the odds of 2.20.
Braver punters can even try with a goalless draw at sky-high 15.00 odds. As for the outcome, the draw is indeed the most realistic of three. Due to the head to head record, we also fancy 1.44 odds offered fr the hosts not to lose.
