Borussia Dortmund ended a two-game winless streak midweek, and will look to put more pressure on Bayern Munich with a win this weekend. Meanwhile, Hertha Berlin saw their three-match unbeaten streak come to an end midweek and will be looking to bounce back.
The last match before the winter break in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund was against Hertha Berlin. The gap between Dortmund and Bayern Munich at the top of the table is currently six points, which means that the traveling side still have hopes of maintaining the title in the second half of the season.
There was a welcome triumphant return for Dortmund midweek, as they ended a two-game winless streak against Furth. It was a very ordinary performance for the hosts on that occasion, as they took the lead in the 35th minute after Erling Haaland scored from the penalty spot. The Norwegian scored the second goal of the game with just eight minutes left of time, before Donyell Malen extended his comfortable advantage with a goal with just one minute left of the 90 minutes.
Survival will be Hertha Berlin’s goal in the second half of the season, as they are ready in the relegation battle. They are currently just below the relegation playoff spot and recently saw their three-match unbeaten streak come to an end after a midweek defeat.
It was an extremely bad performance by Hertha in that game, as they lost 4-0 to Mainz. The away team fared much worse in that game, as they held the ball only 32% and scored a shot on target in the loss. They will need to raise their game infinitely to have any chance of winning anything from Saturday’s game against Dortmund.
Head-to-head Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund have an excellent record in this match in recent meetings, as they have won their last four matches. They won the last trip to Berlin with a score of 5-2 in November last year. The most recent match saw Dortmund win with a score of 2-0.
Prediction Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund
Hertha was hugely disappointed midweek, and they will need to raise the bar this weekend. However, we can hardly see anything other than a comfortable win for the guests this weekend.
