Hoffenheim vs Hertha Berlin Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Hoffenheim host Hertha Berlin at PreZero Arena when the Bundesliga resumes on Saturday. Hertha Berlin will be playing their first match under new boss Bruno Labbadia and should prove hard to beat.

Hoffenheim Form

The break came at a good time for Hoffenheim who had failed to win in their last six matches in all competitions. They were knocked out of the German Cup after a 4-3 defeat at Bayern Munich and lost their next two Bundesliga matches.

Hoffenheim bounced back with a 1-1 draw at Borussia Monchengladbach, but suffered a humbling 6-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich where they were 3-0 down after 15 minutes.

Alfred Schreuder’s side earned a 1-1 draw at Schalke in their last match thanks to Christoph Baumgartner’s second half equaliser.

Hertha Berlin Form

Hertha Berlin have had a drama filled season on and off the pitch. New manager Ante Covic didn’t last long, Jürgen Klinsmann stormed out of the club in February and interim manager Alexander Nouri made way for Bruno Labbadia in early April.

Klinsmann left Hertha after a 3-1 home defeat to Mainz. They responded with a 2-1 win at Paderborn but lost their next match 5-0 at home against Koln. 

Hertha Berlin drew 3-3 at Fortuna Dusseldorf after being 3-0 down at half time. They drew their previous match 2-2 at home, once again coming from behind after being 2-0 down after six minutes.
