Hertha Berlin hosts Hoffenheim in round 27 of the German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Saturday, March 19th at Olympiastadion (Berlin)
Hertha Berlin continues to stagnate. A week ago, the metropolitan team lost to Borussia Monchengladbach away (2-0), and it was their fifth defeat in a row. The total streak without victories in the Bundesliga is nine rounds (seven defeats and two draws). Currently, the Old Lady is in 17th position in the standings with 23 points after 26 matches. Considering that there is still a lot of time until the end of the season, Hertha Berlin retains good chances of maintaining a place in the elite of German football. The gap to the saving 15th line is two points. The only thing that Hertha has done relatively well this season is home performances: four victories, three draws, and six defeats with a goal difference of 17-27. In 26 rounds, the Old Lady conceded as many as 60 goals. Only Greuther Furth, which is in last place in the tournament standings, conceded more.

A week ago, Hoffenheim managed to take away points from Bayern Munich (1-1). Christoph Baumgartner upset the goalkeeper of the Bavarians, and it was his sixth goal in the current season. The Blue-Whites currently have 44 points and share fourth place with Freiburg and Leipzig, who have a similar number of points in their assets. Hoffenheim continues its unbeaten streak in the German championship, and it already amounts to five matches (four victories and one draw). One of the biggest problems for Hoeneß’s team is away performance. The Blue-Whites earned only 17 points in 13 away matches. All the results on foreign pitches look like this: five victories, two draws, and six losses with a goal difference of 21-23. For comparison, they scored ten points more at home.
Hoffenheim beat Hertha Berlin in the first round (2-0). In six of the last eight head-to-head matches at Olympiastadion, the metropolitan team did not score more than one goal. This season the Old Lady shows quite good football at the home stadium. Considering that Hoffenheim often fails on foreign pitches, I think the motivated hosts will be able to create some problems for their opponents. Nevertheless, the shape of the visitors allows them to count on victory. What to expect from the upcoming confrontation? Hoffenheim scores and concedes a lot away (21 and 23 goals, respectively). Hertha Berlin scored 17 goals and conceded 27 times at home. Based on this, I suggest betting on high production.
