Current form Borussia Dortmund
The impressive series of BVB came to a bitter end on the last day before the national team break. They surprisingly lost 0:2 against Bayer Leverkusen. Coach Thomas Tuchel judged his team hard after the game and is expecting a corresponding reaction of his team on Friday. The chances of such a reaction are good, after all BVB plays at home. Dortmund has been flawless in home games so far. They scored nine points in three games at Signal-Iduna-Parc. Borussia seems to struggle against team of their caliber however. While they are easily winning against weaker teams, that’s not the case against teams that are equally strong as them. One could see that in the game against Leverkusen (0:2) and against promoted team Leipzig (0:1). Dortmund often lacks ideas on offense against defensively strong teams and they are not efficient enough in converting their chances. BVB nevertheless won three of the last four games against the club from the capital.
Current form Hertha BSC Berlin
Pal Dardai’s team is currently first pursuer of leader Bayern Munich and they hereby prove that their last strong season, when they secured a Europe League spot, wasn’t a fling. While opponent Dortmund’s biggest trump is offense, the complete opposite is the case for Berlin. Hertha has not received a single goal in six games. Unlike Dortmund Berlin was able to win their last game before the national team break. They beat currently last ranked Hamburg 3:0. But Hertha also has slight problems against stronger teams. Best proof is the 3:0 loss to defending champion Bayern Munich. They also struggled against Eintracht Frankfurt, who are one of the positive surprises of this season, and drew 3:3. Additionally Coach Pál Dardai is dealing with personnel problems on defense before the game in Dortmund. Two important alternatives for the defensive outside will miss Friday’s game, namely Petar Pekarik and Vladimir Darida. New signee Ondrej Duda also still will be out.
Dortmund struggled against Leverkusen, but this loss might as well be extra motivation for Friday. They will want to make up for it in front of their home crowd. Additionally Berlin only won one of the last three games between these two teams. Our recommendation: Tip 1.
