Herta vs M `gladbach
Hertha BSC hosts Borussia M’gladbach in a game from the 12th round of the German Bundesliga. The match is going to be played on Saturday evening in the capital city of Berlin.
Hertha are currently placed 11th in the Bundesliga, which is probably not the place they’d like to be right now. Their record in the league so far is three wins, five draws and three losses, which tells us that they have been far from consistent since the start of the new campaign. They are typically a team which aims for European qualification, but so far the Old Lady is having some trouble in chasing this goal.
In their last five matches Hertha won just once – against Hamburger. They’d really use well another win in the coming weeks, because they need points to improve their position in the league. Can they start against Borussia M’gladbach?
Borussia M’gladbach are doing slightly better than Hertha so far. They are 8th in the league with 18 points and a record of five wins, three draws and three losses. They have won three times in their last five games, but in the last one they were unable to beat Mainz 05 at home. The game ended with a 1-1 draw.
Let’s have a look at the team news before the game.
Hertha will be without the injured Niklas Stark and Vladimir Darida, while Karim Rekik, Valentin Stocker, Palko Dardai, Mitchell Weiser and Matthew Leckie remain doubtful for the game. The good news come from the recovery of Julian Schieber, who is once again fit and ready to play for his team.
Borussia M’gladbach can’t use the injured Laszlo Benes and Tobias Strobl, while Ibrahima Traore and Jonas Hofmann are doubtful. The good news are that Raul Bobadilla and Mamadou Doucoure are now fit and ready to play.
