Hertha – Hoffenheim, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR HERTHA - HOFFENHEIM
Despite of their strong performance, Hertha has lowered the pace and in the last games there is no memory of their good level since the beginning of the season. They have not won 5 consecutive games, taking only 3 points. The last time they were broken by 4-1 by one of the weak sides, Fortuna. Herta are a strong team and at home they always make their rivals suffer. This is a huge chance for them to interrupt the weak series, because they are going to have a match with a team of the top 6 who has a match in the Champions League during the week. Herta could not score goal only vs Leipzig as host this season.
Hoffenheim is one of the teams that concede and score the most goals in the Bundesliga. The open football that confesses Nagelsman continues to enjoy neutral viewers. Hoffenheim took a very important point against Lyon in the Champions League, which means they will now play 100% with Shakhtar in the week. In Bundesliga they also do not perform bad, but only recorded one clean sheet that came against Stuttgart at home a few rounds ago.
Hertha and Hoffenheim have some important injuries, which changes somehow the approach of the two coaches. In recent years there is almost always BTTS between these two opponents and it is quite logical now to expect the same, because their defenses are very hesitant. BTTS is the main prediction at 1.50. The alternative pick is BTTS + over 2.5 goals at 1.75.
