Hertha Berlin (LLWLL)
After the Bundesliga resumed, Hertha Berlin have conceded 8 goals but scored just 1 goal in two matches played. The recent match played at home was a 5-0 loss to Wolfsburg. With the leaky defence of the home side, it is difficult to see a win against this attacked-minded Union Berlin side.
After 17 of 34 Bundesliga matches played, Hertha Berlin finds themselves in 17th position and is 5 points adrift of the team occupying the last position. If the recent defensive play of Hertha Berlin is anything to go by, it is difficult to see the home team surviving relegation.
Based on the statistics of matches Hertha Berlin have been involved in, there is an 85% and 61% chance of the match having over 1.5 and 2.5 goals, respectively. With injuries affecting the attacking play of Hertha Berlin (especially with the injury to Jovetic), it is difficult to see a win for the home side.
