Hertha Berlin will be looking to get back on track in the Bundesliga this weekend, as they desperately bid to end a four-game losing run. Borussia Monchengladbach is the visitors to the German capital, as they look to stretch their unbeaten run to three games.
It looks set to be a testing second half of the season for Hertha Berlin, as they are coming under increasing pressure in the German top-flight. Hertha come into this fixture on Sunday inside the automatic relegation places in the Bundesliga, and victories have been hard to come by throughout the campaign. They have picked up just three wins from 19 games so far this term, and they have lost each of their previous four.
At present, Hertha sits five points from safety, but it is hard to predict where their next win may come from based on their previous performances in the Bundesliga. They were easily beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt in their previous match, losing 3-0 on the road. That means that they have now conceded ten goals in their last three matches, and are yet to find the net themselves.
Borussia Monchengladbach will be looking ahead of them coming into this fixture, as they will need to put together a group of victories if they are to get involved in the European battle. Gladbach has won once in their previous two games, but they have also lost twice in four.
It was a disappointing performance by Gladbach last weekend, as they failed to make a breakthrough against relegation-threatened Schalke. Ultimately, they were forced to accept a 0-0 draw. Gladbach didn’t threaten much in the final third in that fixture, as they managed just four shots on target against the second-worst defence in the league.
Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Monchengladbach Head to Head
Gladbach has picked up victories in each of their previous two fixtures against Hertha Berlin. The most recent of those was a 1-0 home success in August. However, they haven’t won away from home against Hertha since November 2017. Hertha has won just once in their previous seven against their opponents this weekend.
Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
Gladbach was extremely poor in the final third of the pitch last weekend, and that would be a concern coming into this fixture. Hertha’s performances have been extremely poor in recent weeks, but we could see them playing out a third draw in four home fixtures against Gladbach on Sunday.
