Schalke and Hertha Berlin

Match Date: 28 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Veltins Arena


Schalke made a successful feat of forcing a scoreless stalemate against local rivals, Borussia Dortmund. Such victory also makes it an automatic online betting favorite in the match against Hertha Berlin.


Aside from being a top pick of sports betting sites, the victory becomes more significant in terms of extending their lead against Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga table. The latter is a certified contender in terms of stealing their spot and their likelihood of qualifying for yet another Champions League appearance. But with a 7-point lead, it is less likely that Bayer can land on the 3rd spot.


Schalke’s depth is further seen in its previous performances against the capital club. To note, it was able to keep a clean sheet in their last 6 encounters at Veltins Arena and has managed to win 9 of their last 10 matches in all of their competitive encounters.


Hertha Berlin, which, handed over the championship trophy to Bayern will need to man on the pitch if it aspires for a stronger finish. The defeat to the incumbent titleholder, marked its 3rd consecutive defeat.


Prediction: Schalke 04
