Match Date: 22 February 2014 (local time)
Venue: Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadion


Team Form    

VfB Stuttgart

Stuttgart continue to drop in the Bundesliga table as they suffered yet another major loss.


Die Roten’s travel to Hoffenheim yielded nothing but misery. Thomas Schneider and his men went home without a point after their opponent thrashed them with a 4-1 victory, thus, causing them to slip to the 15th spot of the league.


Stuttgart’s form is in dire trouble. They have not won a single match in their last six (6) encounters and they are fast becoming a candidate for relegation. Matters became even worse with the 5-match ban handed over to Vedad Ibisevic. Aside from the lack of a reliable striker, the club is also having issues with their defence as they have conceded an average of two (2) goals during their last nine (9) matches.


Hertha Berlin

Hertha Berlin’s strong start during the season’s first half does not seem to manifest in their current situation. The capital club tends to struggle with their form as they experience their third defeat within their last 6 matches.
With the above-mentioned loss, the capital club did not only slide to the 8th spot, they have also relinquished their opportunity to participate in the European competition next season.


Prediction: Stalemate

There is a high possibility for the match to end in a stalemate. Overall, Hertha Berlin remains strong. But Stuttgart’s losing streak may also serve as their wake up call.
