Hertha Berlin – Hoffenheim Match Prediction | 26-10-2019 09:30

The club was founded in 1892 and is active in the Bundesliga since 2011//2012. Hertha Berlin is a German football club from the city Berlin which is currently active in the highest German football division the Bundesliga. Between 1926 and 1931 Hertha BSC managed to reach 6 times to the final of the Deutsche Meisterschaft which they managed to win 2 times (in 1930 and one year later in 1931).

That said, the hosts arent infallible at the back, while Hertha, even in defeat, have often found the net on their travels. On this basis, a small bet on Hoffenheim to Win & Both Teams to Score is merited. In summary, Hoffenheim have offered lots going forward both in recent times and at home overall this season, while Hertha have given lots away on the road.

Last time out, Hoffenheim faced a potential banana-skin trip to Augsburg, though they avoided any embarrassment by battering their hosts, winning by four goals to nil. Much of the same can be said for when they were last in action at this venue. On that occasion, Julian Nagelsmanns men were excellent offensively, both in terms of creativity and end-product, while they gave next to nothing away at the back. A repeat of either of their last two performances would likely see the hosts maintain the winning thread on Sunday afternoon. On that occasion, Hoffenheim once again flexed their attacking muscles, as they beat Leverkusen by four goals to one.

Consequently, Hertha will have to turn to players like young Dutch defender Derrick Luckassen to make just his second Bundesliga start, while also hoping Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic is back to fitness in midfield. Coming back from the international break, Hertha have a number of injuries to work around, including the absences of their entire first-choice defence, three to injury and one to suspension (see team news). Things were going so well. Heavy defeats at home to RB Leipzig (3-0) and away to promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf (4-1) make Hertha Berlins stellar start to the season feel like a distant memory. Pal Dardais side made headlines just over a month ago by becoming the first team to beat Niko Kovacs Bayern Munich (a 2-0 win), but now their outlook is a lot bleaker.

So where does that leave us ahead of this game? And withHertha only failing to score in one of their five home matches so far this term, expecting a goal from them isnt too farfetched. And we see this being high scoring, ie, over 3.5 goals, for the following reasons: Hertha Berlins poor form in recent weeks might hinder their chances of getting a result, but the way Hoffenheims recent matches have played out, it shouldnt stop them from getting on the score-sheet. Hoffenheims football under Julian Nagelsmanns is a highly effective, attacking style that, as silly as it sounds, focuses on outscoring their opponents, rather than aiming to stop their opponents scoring. Well, after looking over everything, for us the value looks to be in a smaller bet in the goals market.

When digging deeper into the stats, its easy to see why. Expect Hoffenheim to control the flow of this game, and with over 3.5 goals landing in 80% of their away matches, goals should flow their way. Both teams have scored in a massive 91% of Hoffenheims matches this season too, including all of those away from home, soSaturdays game clearly has the potential to be a thriller. Our prediction: 3-1 TSG Hoffenheim. Only Bayern Munich have recorded more shots on target than Hoffenheim in Bundesliga away matches, while only six teams have conceded more shots on target against them at home than Hertha! And as mentioned before, a number of key defensive injuries wont do an out-of-sorts Hertha any favours.

Hoffenheim had lost three in a row prior to 3-1, 4-0, 4-1, and 2-1 wins over Nurnberg, Stuttgart, Leverkusen and Augsburg in the league respectively, and its been English youngster ReissNelson and BrazilianJoelinton that have proven key to their form. With Tuesdays UEFA Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk looming, Nagelsmann may use Nelson from the start in an effort to manage his resources. Between them, the pair has scored four of Hoffenheims last six goals 10 of Hoffenheims 24 goals overall and now last seasons third-place finishers are just one point short of the top four. Hoffenheims season has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride too, but for the moment, at least, it looks like Julian Nagelsmanns men are beginning another ascent.

However, while Herthas defensive efforts suggest that theyll struggle on Sunday, they have often got competitive going forward on the road. Sundays visitors have scored in eight of their last ten away matches, while theyve notched a reasonably respectable average of 1.36 goals for on their travels. Moreover, as good as they are at home, Hoffenheim have a habit of conceding, shipping at least once in four of their last five at Rhein-Neckar-Arena as well as in 11 of their 14 in front of a home crowd.

They were beaten by Freiburg back at the start of March and have since lost three on the spin, losing against Dortmund, Leipzig and Dusseldorf. Crucially, theyve been giving too much away at the back, which doesnt exactly bode well ahead of a match against Hoffenheims strong attack. While Hoffenheim, whove won three of their last four, have been ticking along nicely of late, Hertha have been struggling.
