On Tuesday night, Wolfsburg will look to continue their recent red-hot form as they travel to the German capital to fact relegation-threatened Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga.Hertha Berlin form guide
Hertha Berlin seems to be set for another dogfight at the bottom of the Bundesliga this season. Stefan Schwarz’s team is in 17th place in the German top-flight table but are just a point from both the relegation play-off spot and the safety of 15th place in the standings.
A 3-1 defeat against Bochum last time out in the league continued a poor recent run of form in the German top flight, as it was their fourth loss in five matches in the Bundesliga.
Hertha has won two of their last three home games in the German top-flight, although the two victories are their only home wins in the league at the Olympiastadion in nine matches.Wolfsburg form guide
Niko Kovac’s team has recorded six consecutive wins in the German top flight. Impressively the visitors hammered high-flying Freiburg 6-0 in their last league outing. The game saw winger Ridle Baku continue his hot recent scoring streak, as the winger scored his fourth goal in five league appearances.
A nine-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga has moved the Wolves up to seventh place in the table, just two points adrift of the European positions in the German top-flight.
Wolfsburg have been decent travellers of late, as they are undefeated in four matches on their travels in the German top flight. Their recent scoring streak has been evident on the road, as the Wolves scored at least twice for the third straight away match in the Bundesliga in a 2-1 win at Hoffenheim in their last away league game.Latest team info
Hertha Berlin looks set to be without new signing Florian Niederlechner, Stevan Jovetic, Chidera Ejuke and Kelian Nsona due to various injuries.
Wolfsburg will be without the suspended Paulo Otavio, while forward Lucas Nmecha is expected to miss out through injury. Patrick Wimmer suffered a head injury against Freiburg, so he is unlikely to feature in this encounter.What am I backing?
This looks like the biggest away banker of the midweek fixtures. Therefore, I am backing a comfortable Wolfsburg win.
