Hertha Berlin Prediction

Following a mini slump of three league matches without a win which included defeats to Stuttgart and Bayer Leverkusen and just a point against lowly Ausburg at home, Hertha Berlin bounced back with an emphatic 3-1 win away at Nurnberg which has revived their hopes of gaining a European spot for next season.

Incidentally, the two recent defeats were both away from home, so Hertha Berlin will no doubt be looking forward to returning home this evening.

Following that welcome win away from home, Hertha Berlin are now sitting on the fringes of the top six in the Bundesliga, just one point behind 6th placed Wolfsburg ahead of their Friday night clash against Schalke.

The hosts will now look to further improve their solid home record of 4-3-1 14/11 on Friday night and having lost just once on home soil so far this season, they’ll be confident of taking something out of this encounter.

Midfielder Duda (9 goals) and forward Ibisevic (7 goals) look the most dangerous for the hosts.
