Venue: Olympiastadion

 

Team Form

Hertha Berlin

Hertha Berlin suffered the brunt of Bayer Leverkusen’s ambition to be in the Bundesliga’s top 3 as Stefan Kießling’s right footed shot sealed their fate in their last encounter.

 

After failing to score and clinch extra points, the Old Lady was left with no other option but to take a closer look of their current form. The defeat was their 3rd in their last 6 matches. It has already outnumbered their victories and should this continue, their strong start might not lead them to anywhere.

 

Other than that, Hertha Berlin must also examine their performance during away matches. Their last 6 matches saw them won only once. The rest of it was losses and draws.

 

Augsburg

After enduring 3 consecutive losses during their last 5 matches, Halil Altintop’s 2 goals catapulted the club into the league’s top 10.

 

Two successive goals were already enough to keep Hoffenheim silent throughout their match against Augsburg. They had their chances, but they were eventually denied, thus allowing their opponents to clinch the victory. However, Augsburg’s celebration tends to be a little bit short since they will be visiting Hertha Berlin soon.

 

Their slim chances of winning can be attributed to their poor away team form. Nine (9) of their 10 away matches were unsuccessful. Moreover, they have been conceding an average of 2 goals in their last 4 away matches.

 

While it is true that their recent success is worthy of merits and praise, they also need to work on their performance when leaving their own ground should they want to be consistent and faithful in their dream of making a strong finish.
