Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund Preview

Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund

Competition – German Bundesliga

Stadium – Olympiastadion

Date: 19th January 2018

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

Hertha started their year with a disappointing 1-0 loss at Stuttgart and they will be hoping that their home crowd can cheer them on to victory here.

They actually showed a reoccurrence of a side that can struggle in the final third in that game and their fans will hope they have worked on that in the training ground ahead of this game.

Hertha won 2-1 the last time BVB were in town.

Borussia Dortmund started the year with a goalless draw against Wolfsburg.

That wasn’t the best way to start however keeping a clean sheet is good for a side that was guilty of conceding even more than they scored at times during the first half of the season.

BVB remain one of the most lethal sides in Europe attack-wise and they should be able to take advantage of Hertha defensive struggles here.

BVB will go second in the league table with a win in this game as they are currently just 2 points ahead of RB Leipzig who are in 4th position.

Borussia Dortmund defeated Hertha 2-0 earlier in the season at Signal-Iduna-Park.
