Hertha Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt meet in German Bundesliga soccer action from the Olympiastadion on Saturday morning.
Hertha Berlin come into this match sitting on 38 points tied with Schalke with a record of 10 wins, 8 draws and 12 losses after a narrow 1-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund in their last match. In the game against Dortmund, the first half was pretty quiet. Both sides had their opportunities at goal but we went into the half scoreless. Dortmund would break the tie in the 58th minute and despite their best efforts, Hertha wouldn’t be able to find an equalizing goal as they were held to just 41% possession and outshot 12-5 in terms of goal attempts and 3-2 in regards to shots on goal. Dodi Lukebakio leads Hertha in scoring with 6 goals along with a team-high 5 assists while Vedad Ibisevic has 5 goals and Vladimir Darida has 4 assists. Rune Jarstein is Hertha’s top goaltender, conceding 1.46 goals per 90 minutes with 8 clean sheets in 26 league matches this season.
Eintracht Frankfurt on the other side, come in tied in 11th place with FC Koln on 35 points with a record of 10 wins, 5 draws and 15 losses after a 2-0 loss to Mainz in their last matchup. In the defeat against Mainz, Frankfurt fell behind in the 43rd minute and did their best throughout to get back into the match, holding 61% possession. However, Mainz made the most of their possession, outshooting Frankfurt 17-10 in terms of goal attempts and 5-0 in regards to shots on goal. Mainz would seal the deal with a second goal in the 77th minute and not look back as Frankfurt’s two game winning streak was over at full time. Andre Silva and Martin Hinteregger are tied for the team-high with 8 goals this season while Filip Kostic has 4 goals and a team-high 10 assists on the year.
With only four games to go, we’re really starting to see the purgatory zone come into effect as Hertha and Frankfurt probably won’t be going up or down over the final few games. With that said, Frankfurt’s loss to Mainz dealt my confidence a blow, and while they’ve had a solid run of form, I’m back off of Frankfurt again. Hertha isn’t a world-beater at home, but Frankfurt’s one of only two teams (last placed Paderborn being the other) with 10 losses on the road this season. I just think that if Hertha’s going to make a last gasp push for the Europa League spot, it has to start here, so I’ll side with Hertha Berlin for the win at home here.
