Hertha Berlin vs SC Freiburg
German Bundesliga. Kick Off: 2.30pm, October 21st. Live on BT Sport Extra
THIS week’s tip comes with a twist, as I will be making my annual pilgrimage to Germany in order to sample another weekend of beer, bratwurst and Bundesliga action.
I’ll be at the Olympiastadion on Sunday afternoon to see if Hertha can continue their strong start to the campaign on Sunday as they play hosts to Freiburg.
In their last home match Berlin were mightily impressive beating reigning champs Bayern 2-0 and this was followed with a keenly fought goalless draw at Mainz
The key to the promising start for Pál Dárdai’s side has been the form of Slovakian forward Ondrej Duda, who has registered 5 goals in his position playing just behind main striker and club captain Vedad Ibisevic.
Freiburg in contrast have yet to find any degree of consistency in their results with 2 wins so far and despite Hertha having a poor record in this contest (2 wins from 12 encounters) I find it hard to see anything but a resounding win for Die Alte Dame.
- Hertha win and over 1.5 goals 11/8 (Coral)
