Looking for reprieve
After more downs than ups so far this season, the Hertha Berlin boys come into this fixture in relatively pleasing form having avoided defeat in each of their last two, holding fellow bottom-half sides Augsburg and Stuttgart to 1-1 and 2-2 draws respectively. However, the fact remains that they’re struggling to get the job done, winning none of their last five in the league.
One thing that can be said for Saturday’s hosts is that they’re tough to beat at home. Pal Dardai’s men have lost only one of their last five at Olympiastadion, picking up some decent results against the likes of Gladbach and Leverkusen in the process. That said, they probably will need to start scoring a few more goals if they’re to extend their unbeaten run at home further than December. Hertha Berlin have scored more than once in just one of their six home games in the Bundesliga this term.
For Arminia, the struggle to stay in the top flight is very much real, and as things stand, their struggle looks set to be in vain. The visitors are by no means the easiest team to beat, losing by more than a single goal in none of their last five, but like Hertha, they too find it hard to come out on top.
Playing on the road has provided Bielefeld with little joy this term, but they don’t concede many goals, shipping one or less in each of their last four travelling fixtures. Such a stat bodes well ahead of a trip to face low-scoring hosts.
Hertha Berlin vs Arminia Bielefeld Predictions
Both teams will be looking at this fixture as an opportunity, make no mistake about that. Neither side scores many goals, so the other ought to fancy themselves, though from a betting point of view, the visitors, who are available at generous-looking odds, are the only team that appeals.
The hosts, who are up there with the worst in the division for both creativity and goals scored at home, simply haven’t been effective enough offensively to warrant such strong favouritism, while the visitors are sturdier than their early price suggests too. Having stopped better teams than Hertha in their tracks, Bielefeld should be backed to collect a positive result.
