Hertha – Borussia D, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR HERTHA - DORTMUND
Hertha will accept the hesitant Dortmund. It is a good chance for the Berlin team to get points at home in front of their fans against a team that anyway was struggling at Signal Iduna Park earlier in the season against them and Hertha got a draw, becoming one of the two teams who took something from this stadium in the Bundesliga this campaign. Hertha are in a fairly good shape, but lost from Freiburg in the last round, which shows that it is difficult to rely on them.
Dortmund are coming after a week’s rest and this will happen to them quite often until the end of the Bundesliga season after they have dropped out of the Champions League, but for their regret, the same thing happened to Bayern. Borussia fans may have enjoyed the failure of the Bavarians against Liverpool, but perhaps that is largely to guarantee the title for Bayern, who now have only one goal by the end of the season – a league title. Borussia is very hesitant, and it is clear that they will soon be behind Bayern, not just with a goal difference.
Guests are favorites at paper, but we expect the match to be quite even. Taking into account the domestic factor for Hertha, who have only 2 home losses in the Bundesliga this season, as well as the huge pressure and drastic downturn in the form of Dortmund, we can not but expect the Berlin team to score at least 1 goal. It remains for the guests to lift and also to score at least one goal, because they risk to leave the fight for the title quite early, given that they were first most of the season. Prediction – BTTS at 1.68.
- Hertha did not score a goal at home in just two games
- Dortmund has missed to score only 2 times in the league for the whole season
- 5 of the last 6 matches between the two teams ended with BTTS
