Hertha Berlin: Bad start of the new year (Recent form: D W W L L)
Hertha Berlin lost in their only friendly game in the winter break against Koln. In the first game in 2018 year for Bundesliga met Stuttgart away at home and also lost with 0-1. They dominated on this game with more ball possession, but in attack was their problems as had only 1 shot on goal for the whole game. So this defeat ended a serie from 3 consecutive games without a lose in league - 2 wins and draw. At home the team is struggling as well after won only 1 from last 4 games in all competitions. They beat Hannover with 3-1, while finished 1-1 vs Ostersunds in Europa League, while in Bundesliga lost against Frankfurt with 1-2 and Borussia Moenchengladbach with 2-4. There are also lots of injury concerns with Dardai, Esswein, Pekarik, Rekik and Schiebere are doubts for this home game.
Dortmund: Unstable performance in the first game in the new year (Recent form: W L W W D)
Dortmund finished 0-0 against Wolfsburg in their first official game for 2018 year. Their start in attack Aubameyang missed the game as there are rumors that he want to leave the club. So Borussia started in attack with 18-years old Isak, 17-years old Sancho and Yarmolenko. Lots of goal chances they had, also hit the crossbar twice, but missed all of their chances, while in defense was not so stable, but Burki had a couple of very important savings. Philipp and Schmelzer are both still injured and out, while Bartra, Guerreiro and Pulisic are close to return in the squad.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
First head to head meeting between these two teams in this season finished 2-0 for Dortmund, while last meeting in Berlin finished 2-1 for Hertha. Now, an over game is expected as both teams are still not in best form, but need a win in the battle for top 4, so both of them should attack from first minute and score goals.
