Hertha Berlin and Wolfsburg face-off at the Olympiastadion, as the visitors hope to end a two-game Bundesliga losing streak and interfere in the European promotion race.
Level on points with the upcoming rivals and unbeaten in their last two Bundesliga clashes (W1, D1), the hosts come into this meeting looking to extend a four-game home league lossless run (W1, D3). All of the Old Lady’s last three home stalemates have produced over 3.5 goals, with two of them ending with the identical 2-2 scoreline. When Pal Dardai’s men outplay the opponents at home, they tend to do it with some style, considering three of their four Bundesliga home wins saw them beating their rivals to nil. However, lapses with concentration have seen Hertha conceding seven goals in their last four league home outings. Hertha’s main problem is that they’ve allowed their opponents to break the deadlock in three of their previous five home meetings, which eventually resulted in Hertha picking up just six points in the sequence.
Meanwhile, the visitors are still chasing their first triumph in 2019, as they’ve gone from six successive games without a loss (W5, D1) to two straight defeats. Disappointing displays after the break have seen the Wolves conceding five goals in two Bundesliga outings while scoring just one in the process. What’s more, the Wolves have lost three of their last five Bundesliga away encounters (W2, D3), allowing over 1.5 goals per match in each failure. Unexpectedly, Wolfsburg have wrapped up more points away from home (16) so far, which is the third-best record in the German top flight, with all of their five road victories saw them scoring over 1.5 goals per match.
