That said, let's not forget that Dortmund are very understaffed, and the guests themselves are not as stable as they were at the beginning.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
It's been a weak cycle for Hertha, as the team's earned only 5 points in the last five games, beating only Arminia at home. There were also draws with Augsburg and Stuttgart, defeats by Union and Mainz. It is clear that Hertha has problems getting results against the teams fighting for European Cups. Overall, Hertha sits 14th and may very well drop into the danger zone after round 17. The Berliners' home statistics are 12th in the division.
The last round saw Borussia defeat Greuther Fürth, and the day before that the BVB brought back only one point from Bochum, which noticeably worsened their already slim chances to get the Meisterschale. In the Bundesliga standings, Borussia sits confidently in second place, six points behind Bayern. The prediction is being made before the match between Bayern and Wolfsburg, which means that it is possible that on Friday night the handicap will increase to nine points. Borussia's away stats are sixth in the division, +3=1-3, 13-11 goal difference.
Injuries and suspensions
- Hertha: Dárdai, Klunter, Pekarik, Jarstein;
- Dortmund: Akanji, Bellingham, Bürki, Wolf, Morey, Moukoko, Reyna, Unbehaun, Schmelzer.
