Hertha Berlin Prepared To Crash Nürnberg

Updated: August 15, 2013


Match Preview: Hertha Berlin VS Nürnberg
Match Date: 18 August 2013 (local time)
Venue: Grundig Stadion
Scoring 6 goals in a rather unexpected, yet classy manner, Bundesliga betting tips are pointing to Hertha Berlin (The Old Lady) over FC Nürnberg (The Legend) in a battle at Grundig Stadion this 18 August 2013.


Past performance
The Old Lady’s last 5 matches show better results than that of the Legends. The former won 4 of it while the friendly against Rad ended in a draw. Included in the won matches is the one against Eintracht Frankfurt where they scored 6 stunning goals.


On the other hand, Nürnberg’s previous encounters can be best described as satisfactory. Out of its 5 battles, it won twice, lost once and the most recent matches ended in a draw.


Team form
Hertha Berlin is currently dominating the Bundesliga table. The high-scoring match made them on top of the pack by virtue of goal difference. Indeed, it was rather unexpected to see a newly promoted team overcome treble tittle holders, Bayern Munchen and German Super Cup awardee, Borussia Dortmund. But just like the old saying goes, everything is possible in football.


On the other hand, the Legends is one of those clubs temporarily saved from relegation. Having a solid defence is necessary. Otherwise, they might find themselves suffering the same fate as that of Eintracht Frankfurt. A much needed win is the club’s only recourse since their upcoming battle will be against Bayern Munchen.


What to expect
Expect the Old Lady to capitalize on scoring chances. They are in a much better form in entering this match and they will most likely aspire to duplicate their previous performance.


On the other hand, the Legends’ edge as of the moment is that Hertha Berlin has lost 6 out of their 8 away matches. The former has the home court advantage and they can capitalize on that. Nevertheless, they should be mindful of the fact that Hertha Berlin is known for making surprise. There is a high possibility for the Old Lady to break its away match misfortunes. As mentioned, anything is possible in football.
