Borussia Dortmund and Hertha Berlin square off in German Bundesliga soccer action from Signal Iduna Park on Saturday afternoon.
Borussia Dortmund come into the match sitting in 2nd place on 60 points with a record of 18 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses following a 6-1 beatdown victory over Paderborn in their last match. The game was deadlocked without a goal after 45 minutes, but Dortmund would open the flood gates in the second half as Thorgan Hazard and Jadon Sancho scored three minutes apart in the 54th and 57th minutes. Paderborn pulled a goal back from the penalty spot in the 72nd, but Sancho would restore the two goal lead just two minutes later with his second goal. Achraf Hakimi and Marcel Schmelzer scored four minutes apart in the 85th and 89th minutes before Sancho completed his hat trick in the first minute of second half stoppage time. Sancho leads Borussia Dortmund in scoring and assists with 17 goals and 16 assists this season while Thorgan Hazard has 7 goals with 13 assists and Achraf Hakimi has 5 goals with 10 assists on the year. Roman Burki is the top goalkeeper for Dortmund, conceding 1.32 goals per 90 minutes with 10 clean sheets in 28 league appearances this season.
Hertha Berlin come into this game in 9th place, sitting on 38 points after picking up a 2-0 win over Augsburg in their last match. In the win against Augsburg, Javairo Dilrosun opened the scoring just 23 minutes in for Hertha and the score held up for most of the match until Krzysztof Piatek added an injury time marker late in the second half to lock up the win and the points for Hertha Berlin at the final whistle. Dodi Lukebakio leads Hertha Berlin with 6 goals and 5 assists this season while Rune Jarstein is the top goalkeeper for Hertha Berlin, conceding 1.48 goals per 90 minutes with 8 clean sheets in 25 league appearances this season.
Both of these teams come in playing really well, which may seem surprising to say about Hertha Berlin, but Hertha’s picked up 10 of a possible 12 points since the restart and did tie against Leipzig just a few days ago. However, Dortmund’s simply the more powerful team here, and they’re on a five game unbeaten run against Hertha Berlin in the league. Since 2015, Dortmund’s picked up points in 11 of 12 games against Hertha, including 5 wins and 4 draws in the last 10 meetings in the Bundesliga. I just think that Dortmund needs the points more until Bayern has clinched the title as BVB always has an outside shot to catch them, and with Bayern in a tough spot against Bayer Leverkusen, this could be a potential spot that Dortmund could make up some ground. I think Dortmund wins, but Hertha puts up a fight, so I’ll take Borussia Dortmund with the both teams to score option to get some value out of the wager.
