Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin

 

After a winless streak in 3 consecutive matches, Wolfsburg returned to the limelight when it snatched a convincing win against Bayer Leverkusen. With a renewed confidence, the club is eager to continue its outstanding performance to strengthen its season campaign.

 

Meanwhile, a different story takes place in Hertha Berlin. The capital club is just a notch away from the relegation zone. Their current situation is quite different from what they achieved last season wherein they were even dubbed as the top-flight league’s dark horse.

 

The contenders

Hertha Berlin

Hertha Berlin was lucky to pull off an equalizer during the dying minutes of its match against SC Freiburg. Ronny’s last minute rally saved Hertha Berlin from another bout of defeat.

 

On a closer look at its recent matches, the club has not won a single match since the season started. Stalemates were the only thing that kept them alive.

 

Hertha Berlin is valued to win at  3.08 in the sports betting site, 12BET.

 

Wolfsburg

Wolfsburg experienced a spectacular turn of events last weekend. The squad thrashed Bayer Leverkusen with 4 goals whilst the latter can only respond with 2. Aside from the big win, it was also the first victory that Wolfsburg has incurred since the season started. The scenario is more than enough to generate a renewed confidence in a squad hungry to clinch more points.

 

Possible head turners

Ronny will rise up to the challenge and score again for Hertha Berlin, but he must be wary of Wolfsburg’s defenders such as Ricardo Rodriguez and Kevin De Bruyne as the two are keen on preventing every scoring opportunity that comes along his way.

 

Prediction

Hertha Berlin 1-2 Wolfsburg
