Hertha Berlin vs Borussia MonchengladbachGerman Bundesliga, KO: 17:30 Oct 23, 2021, Olympiastadion Berlin
Borussia Monchengladbach will look to continue their recent resurgence when they travel to Berlin for a German Bundesliga clash against Hertha Berlin. Monchengladbach are playing with confidence at the moment and will fancy their chances against an erratic Hertha side.
Hertha Berlin are coming off a 2-1 victory at Eintracht Frankfurt last time out in the Bundesliga. They went two goals up thanks to efforts from Marco Richter and Jurgen Ekkelenkamp before Frankfurt pulled one back midway through the second half.
It has been mixed results for Hertha Berlin this season as they are currently in the bottom half of the table, just three points above the relegation zone. They have lost two of their last three matches, a run that includes a 6-0 defeat to RB Leipzig.
Manager Pal Dardai has had little to smile about at home lately with Hertha Berlin losing two of their last three matches at Olympiastadion Berlin. They head into Saturday’s clash with a 2-1 defeat to Freiburg in their last fixture at home.
Borussia Monchengladbach were held to a 1-1 home draw by Stuttgart in their previous Bundesliga fixture. They fought back from a goal down with Jonas Hoffmann grabbing the equaliser just before the break.
After enduring a slow start to the season, Borussia Monchengladbach are returning to their best form. Adi Hutter’s men have suffered just one defeat in their last five Bundesliga matches and are now in the top 10.
Monchengladbach are unbeaten in their last three matches, claiming two wins in that run, including a 3-1 victory at Wolfsburg in their previous away fixture. However, they still need to tighten up at the back having kept just one clean sheet in their eight matches this season.
