Hertha Berlin - Week 9

Match Date: 25 October 2014 (local time)

Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin

 

To secure a draw and the idea of slowly moving away from the relegation zone are enough to inspire a struggling Hamburger in continuing its improved performance. But despite being inspired, do they really have what it takes to trample the online betting favorite, Hertha Berlin?

 

The contenders

Hertha Berlin

Hertha Berlin’s dwindling performance caused them to drop into the mid-table of the Bundesliga table. Pitted against Bayer Leverkusen, the latter slapped them with  two (2) crucial goals. The club could only watch in exasperation as it failed to respond well to the situation.

 

The capital club sported a strong image last season –snatching wins and even scoring six (6) massive goals. But it seemed that there not a single trace of such power and force can be detected in the  club right now.

 

Hamburger SV

Hamburger could only snatch a single point during its Hoffenheim match. However, it was enough to help them move away from the rock bottom part of the top-flight league table.

 

The Red Shorts have been struggling since the season started. But it looks like the draw will help them return to their winning ways soon.

 

Possible head turners

Headed by Roy Beerens, Hertha Berlin took several scoring chances against Bayer Leverkusen. Beerens could feature again in the match against Hamburger, but he needs to be more clinical to snatch the win.

 

Prediction

Hertha Berlin 2-0 Hamburger SV
