Hertha Berlin – Hoffenheim Match Prediction | 26-10-2019 09:30

Hoffenheims season has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride too, but for the moment, at least, it looks like Julian Nagelsmanns men are beginning another ascent. Hoffenheim had lost three in a row prior to 3-1, 4-0, 4-1, and 2-1 wins over Nurnberg, Stuttgart, Leverkusen and Augsburg in the league respectively, and its been English youngster ReissNelson and BrazilianJoelinton that have proven key to their form. With Tuesdays UEFA Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk looming, Nagelsmann may use Nelson from the start in an effort to manage his resources. Between them, the pair has scored four of Hoffenheims last six goals 10 of Hoffenheims 24 goals overall and now last seasons third-place finishers are just one point short of the top four.

So where does that leave us ahead of this game? And withHertha only failing to score in one of their five home matches so far this term, expecting a goal from them isnt too farfetched. And we see this being high scoring, ie, over 3.5 goals, for the following reasons: Hertha Berlins poor form in recent weeks might hinder their chances of getting a result, but the way Hoffenheims recent matches have played out, it shouldnt stop them from getting on the score-sheet. Hoffenheims football under Julian Nagelsmanns is a highly effective, attacking style that, as silly as it sounds, focuses on outscoring their opponents, rather than aiming to stop their opponents scoring. Well, after looking over everything, for us the value looks to be in a smaller bet in the goals market.

Last time out, Hoffenheim faced a potential banana-skin trip to Augsburg, though they avoided any embarrassment by battering their hosts, winning by four goals to nil. Much of the same can be said for when they were last in action at this venue. On that occasion, Julian Nagelsmanns men were excellent offensively, both in terms of creativity and end-product, while they gave next to nothing away at the back. A repeat of either of their last two performances would likely see the hosts maintain the winning thread on Sunday afternoon. On that occasion, Hoffenheim once again flexed their attacking muscles, as they beat Leverkusen by four goals to one.

Prediction Hertha Berlin-TSG Hoffenheim: 12 (Odd 1.37)

Both teams have scored in a massive 91% of Hoffenheims matches this season too, including all of those away from home, soSaturdays game clearly has the potential to be a thriller. Expect Hoffenheim to control the flow of this game, and with over 3.5 goals landing in 80% of their away matches, goals should flow their way. When digging deeper into the stats, its easy to see why. And as mentioned before, a number of key defensive injuries wont do an out-of-sorts Hertha any favours. Only Bayern Munich have recorded more shots on target than Hoffenheim in Bundesliga away matches, while only six teams have conceded more shots on target against them at home than Hertha! Our prediction: 3-1 TSG Hoffenheim.

The club colors of Hertha Berlin are blue and red and is also known as Die Alte Dame which is the same nickname as Juventus. Hertha Berlin originally played its home games in the Plumpe which got bombed during the WW II. After the bombings Hertha Berlin stated to play their games in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. Next to winning the German national league Hertha Berlin managed to reach to the final in the DFB Pokal in 1977, 1979 and 1993.

Julian Nagelsmanns troops have been scoring goals for fun of late and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the capital club on Matchday 29. It is well known that Hoffenheim are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that Pal Dardais troops have nothing to play for in the season finale, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Buoyed by a thrilling 4-0 win over Augsburg, Hoffenheim will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Hertha at their PreZero Arena.

Prediction Hertha Berlin - TSG Hoffenheim

That said, the hosts arent infallible at the back, while Hertha, even in defeat, have often found the net on their travels. On this basis, a small bet on Hoffenheim to Win & Both Teams to Score is merited. In summary, Hoffenheim have offered lots going forward both in recent times and at home overall this season, while Hertha have given lots away on the road.

Pal Dardais side made headlines just over a month ago by becoming the first team to beat Niko Kovacs Bayern Munich (a 2-0 win), but now their outlook is a lot bleaker. Heavy defeats at home to RB Leipzig (3-0) and away to promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf (4-1) make Hertha Berlins stellar start to the season feel like a distant memory. Coming back from the international break, Hertha have a number of injuries to work around, including the absences of their entire first-choice defence, three to injury and one to suspension (see team news). Things were going so well. Consequently, Hertha will have to turn to players like young Dutch defender Derrick Luckassen to make just his second Bundesliga start, while also hoping Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic is back to fitness in midfield.

Oliver Baumann is a German goalkeeper who was born on 2 June, 1990 in Breisach. After making 131 appearances for the first team, he signed a four-year deal with Hoffenheim on 14 May, 2014. He started playing for Freiburg II at senior level and he made 22 appearances for the team in the 2009/2010 season. The 187-cm-tall shoot-stopper began his youth career at FC Bad Krozingen and in 2002 he joined Freiburg youth school.
