The upcoming fixture of German League 2017-18 is going to witness the clash of Hertha Berlin and Borussia Dortmund in Olympiastadion Berlin, Germany. The visiting team would start as favourites as they are the better team statistically and currently ranking the 4th spot on the points table with 29 points salvaged from eight wins and five draws whereas the home team is ranked 11th on the points table with 24 points salvaged from six wins and six draws.
However, if we go by the last six head to head encounters of both these teams then Borussia Dortmund has won three of the six times they have faced off lately, two matches ended in a draw and the home team, Hertha Berlin managed to win only one of those encounters.
When: 1:00 AM (IST) on Saturday
Where: Olympiastadion Berlin, Germany
Date – January 20, 2018
Last six performances of both teams in the German League 2017-18:
DOR – D, D, L, W, W, D
HER – W, L, D, W, W, L
Burki (GK), Piszczek, Sokratis, Toprak, Toljan, Gotze, Weigl, Kagawa, Yarmolenko, Schurrle, Sancho
Jarstein (GK), Plattenhardt, Fabian Lustenberger, Stark, Pekarik, Skjelbred, Maier, Kalou, lazaro, Weiser, Selke
(IndiaFantasy suggests picking more players of DOR over HER)
*(The aforementioned players are selected on the basis of their performance in their last match)
Hertha will want to get back on track after a 1-0 defeat at Stuttgart. They have lost three of their last five Bundesliga home games, though, and will face another strong opponent here.
Dortmund needs to recover from a rather disappointing 0-0 with Wolfsburg last time out. Peter Stöger’s side has to improve in possession again and become more versatile going forward.
Expect this to be an intense game, with Dortmund slight favourites to edge it on the road.
