Bundesliga – Borussia Dortmund v Hertha Berlin Betting Preview

Borussia Dortmund had a poor season by their standards last year after just creeping into to the Europa League places after a strong finish to the season. Their poor season was partly due to the fact that they were ravaged by injuries to key players throughout the season and they will have wanted to start this season well and get back into the Champions League spots.

And that is exactly what they have done, after a great pre-season they carried their form into all competitions and are yet to even draw a match. In their opening two Bundesliga matches, they have won them both 4-0 with Aubameyang, Reus and Mkhitrayan all getting two goals each.

Hertha Berlin managed to avoid relegation narrowly last season via goal difference but they have started this season off in fine form taking four points from the opening two matches and they know that if they can find a way to get something from this extremely tough fixture then it could set them up to secure a mid-table finish in the league.

Hertha beat Augsburg away from home on the opening weekend which was a great result considering Augsburg finished 5th last season, and then took a point from a home match against Werder Bremen the next week. They will know that their defence will have to be solid if they want to get anything from this game.

21/12/13 BUN Dortmund vs Hertha Berlin 1 : 2
18/02/12 BUN Hertha Berlin vs Dortmund 0 : 1

This will be the 58th time that these two clubs have met and going into the match Dortmund hold a clear advantage as they have won 26 of the previous 57 meetings whilst losing just 17. And when we look at the matches solely played where Dortmund hold the home advantage, Dortmund have beaten Hertha Berlin in 18 of the 29 matches whilst losing just 4.

This data alone would suggest that Dortmund will beat Hertha in this particular encounter but if we also look at more recent games between these two sides, it shows a different story as both teams have won three of the last six meetings. And also at the Signal Iduna Park, Hertha have triumphed over Dortmund in two of the last three games which will give the Hertha team a huge boost.

Hertha Berlin are in relatively good form themselves after taking four points from the opening two matches of the Bundesliga and comfortably brushing Arminia Bielefeld aside in the Pokal.

Borussia Dortmund Team News:

Dortmund’s only injury concern is with Lukasz Piszczek after he picked up a hip injury in the pre-match warm up against Odd last Thursday. Their head coach said that they will have to wait and see if it is a long-term injury so we are unsure whether he will be back in time for this match.

Hertha Berlin Team News:

Hertha look to be without both Ben-Hatira and Schieber for this match but are hoping to see the return of Cigerci, Hegeler and Allagui.

Borussia Dortmund v Hertha Berlin Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

Although Hertha have started the season strongly and have a sound recent record against Dortmund, I just can’t see past a Dortmund win in this match as they are in amazing form and have an incredible support at the Signal Iduna Park. They found a way to score four past a solid Mochengladbach outfit and I expect them to find a way to break down this Hertha Berlin side. It may take them a while to break the deadlock if Hertha try to park the bus but they scored all four goals in the second half against Ingolstadt last week and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the same here.

Including Dortmund’s strong finish to last season, they have won four of their last five domestic home matches to nil and have won seven of their last nine matches to nil also. For this reason, my first bet is for Borussia Dortmund to Win to Nil in this match.

My second bet for this match is for Dortmund to grab three or more goals in this match as they are on fire at the moment and I expect them to carry that on here. Also, if Dortmund do concede in this match then I would expect them to push on and get at least three goals meaning that this bet should cover the other in that circumstance hopefully.
