Hertha Berlin to Win
The Old Lady will welcome FC Cologne for their fifth competitive fixture in twelve days. They have given a good account of their abilities in this period two wins and two draws to crawl out of the relegation slots. However, both sides are involved in battle for survival and this is a six-point affair in the battle for survival. Momentum is on Hertha's side, who should be able to claim the three points on offer.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Cologne ended their five-match losing streak on the road, triumphing over FC Augsburg in a five-goal thriller. Despite their woeful away form, the Billy Goats have seen goals in their away trips, with four of their last five outings seeing three or more goals. A similar trend is witnessed in the Old Lady's home fixtures. Barring their 0-0 draw with Arminia Bielefeld, the previous five matches at the Olympiastadion have seen the Over 2.5 prediction come true.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Since their return to action following a two-week gap due to the coronavirus outbreak, Hertha have managed to trouble the scorers with relative ease. This is a trend especially witnessed in their home fixtures, where they have scored ten goals in their last five matches. To their credit, three of these fixtures saw them keep a clean sheet. The challenge of the Billy Goats cannot be put aside despite their problems, as evidenced by their three-goal heroics against FC Augsburg.
Hertha Berlin vs Cologne: Team News and Match Preview
The Old Lady have moved out of the relegation slots but the threat still looms large. They are within touching distance of still falling behind and rendering their hard work to nought. Hertha needs a positive result and have a favourable tie against FC Cologne, who have five defeat in their last six away trips. However, their task has been complicated by injuries to eight first-team players. Top scorers Matheus Cunha and Jhon Cordoba are part of that group, leaving the scoring burden on Krzysztof Piatek.
The Billy Goats can move out of the relegation slots with a positive result in the German capital. With Hertha plagued by injuries by the hectic fixture schedule, Friedhelm Funkel's men have received a boost to their chances. However, they will have to overcome their woeful away form to ensure the likelihood of a favourable result. Ondrej Duda scored a brace in Cologne's 2-3 away victory over FC Augsburg and Funkel will hope the midfielder can deliver again on Saturday.
