The Old Lady have indeed, returned to their winning ways after sinking VfB Stuttgart to a narrow 2-1 defeat. With the said performance, the club has readily found a classy way of seeking redemption from a disappointing Wolfsburg loss.


Levan Kobiashivbili secured the early lead for Hertha Berlin. However, just when they thought that the match was already over, Stuttgart’s Arthur Boka responded when his left footed shot snatched the equalizer.


As both clubs tried to outclass each other, netting a goal became even more difficult for the two and the possibility of ending in an even steven finish became even higher. But thanks to Sandro Wagner’s late goal that Hertha Berlin were able to survive a difficult match.


Wagner, however, might miss the encounter against SC Freiburg due to incurring a red card in the said match.

What happened to SC Freiburg?


Christian Streich and the rest of the squad have tons of explanations to do following another heartbreaking defeat that pushed them to the relegation zone. The loss became even harder to accept as supporters have readily expressed their disappointment via throwing water bottles.


SC Freiburg were one of Bundesliga’s elite last season. They finished on the 5th spot, but their current performance was short of being impressive. Unable to score in six (6) of their last eight (8) matches, they have also lost their last four (4) away matches. Such figures readily explain why they take the minnow’s role in this match.


Prediction:  Hertha Berlin

It does not need rocket science to determine the dominant force in this match. Needless to say, this match goes to Hertha Berlin.
