13th March 2021 – 18:30, Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund will host Hertha in one of the most interesting matches of the Bundesliga 25th round. The hosts want to keep up the chase for the top four while the visitors search for a getaway from the danger zone.
Borussia Dortmund vs Hertha Match Preview & Team News
Dortmund heads to this game after booking a place in the Champions League quarter-finals. Erling Haaland was brilliant again, and his brace helped the BVB to remain in control over the tie against Sevilla. This fantastic striker scored four goals in the previous two matches, and everybody expects him to keep up the pace. The home side sits in 6th place, being four points behind the fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt. Dortmund lost their last Bundesliga game against Bayern Munich despite an early two-goal lead. They spilled too many points at the home ground this season but improved a bit when playing at Signal Iduna Park. Dortmund hasn’t lost its last five home matches, and they need to continue that record to try finishing the campaign in the top four.
Hertha is one of the biggest underachievers this season in Bundesliga. They sit in a disappointing 15th place, being only two points ahead of the red zone. The away side celebrated only on five occasions this season, and they would be happy to remain in the competition. However, Hertha had high pre-season ambitions as they invested a lot of money on new signings. Indeed, the squad should be capable of challenging one of the continental spots, but everything went in the wrong direction. Pal Dardai’s side has severe troubles in the back, as it conceded 43 times so far. On the other hand, the strikers haven’t been efficient enough with their 28 goals. Hertha has been playing poorly on the road recently, as the visitors picked up just two points from the last five outings. Nevertheless, a victory in the latest round against Augsburg can encourage the away side fans. Hertha needs to put a disciplined performance to get something from this game.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Although Borussia Dortmund has been inconsistent throughout the season, they showed some improvements lately. Therefore, we believe the hosts will win this match and stay in the race for another Champions League ticket.
Goals Market Prediction
Head-to-head clashes between these two teams have been pretty efficient lately. Since both sides haven’t been playing very well in defense, we think this game should go over a 2.5 margin.
