Hertha vs Wolfsburg Prediction and Analysis
This meeting is one of the most equal in the intermediate round of the Bundesliga.
Judging from this, what are the bookmakers' expectations and odds.
But if we rewind the film, we can notice that Wolfsburg had significant successes in Berlin .
In the last 15 years they have lost only 2 times at this stadium.
Also, Wolves are in great form this season and it wouldn't be a surprise if they win today.
They come in high spirits after a crushing 6-0 win against title contenders Freiburg last round.
Hertha Berlin have shown signs of revival recently, especially at home. Here they lost only 2 times (to Dortmund and Bayern).
But despite that, in my opinion, they are quite overvalued by the bookies in this match.
And Wolfsburg can very easily take all the spoils here.
Hertha Berlin - statistics and info
Hertha Berlin welcomed the Bundesliga winter break after winning their last match 2-0 at home to Cologne.
After that, the capital club made a very good preparation, remaining unbeaten in 6 controls - 3 wins and 3 draws.
And the team's fans began to look optimistically at the situation.
But just then, Bochum beat them in the first round after the resumption of the Bundesliga.
Thus, the club from Berlin is again in the danger zone with a point less than Stuttgart and Augsburg.
That's why this match against Wolfsburg turns out to be very important.
Because a possible failure would increase the chances of relegation to Bundesliga 2.
Nigeria's Ejuke is out with a knee injury and will be out of the squad for the home side.
The situation is the same with the Norwegian Yarstein.
Niederlechner has a thigh injury. While Frenchman Nsona is another player with knee problems and is questionable.
Wolfsburg - statistics and info
Wolfsburg continue their excellent performance this season.
They recorded 4 straight wins before the league break, conceding just 1 goal in that period.
This perfect run continued with a surprisingly convincing 6-0 win against a strong Freiburg team.
Thus, the Wolves reached the 7th place in the table.
Something that 2-3 months ago seemed completely impossible.
This team has great quality. But at the beginning of the season he was having problems.
Which are obviously gradually being solved under the guidance of their coach Niko Kovacs.
Lucas Nmecha has a knee injury and is questionable against Hertha.
Almost all other players are healthy. And this is a big advantage for the guests in this match.
