Hertha Berlin vs Cologne – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Cologne won on their last visit to play Hertha in Berlin in January. Can Die Geißböcke enjoy more success in the capital on Saturday? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Cologne Double Chance

Hertha Berlin are in the midst of a major slump and their 2-1 reverse at Stuttgart on Tuesday evening was their fourth defeat in five Bundesliga assignments. Indeed, Die Alte Dame’s only victory in their last nine attempts came at the expense of bottom club Schalke last month and they could struggle again when they host Cologne on Saturday. Die Geißböcke have hit a bumpy patch themselves, though they were unlucky to lose against Bayer Leverkusen in midweek after they mustered 19 attempts and dominated nearly 60% of the ball and they can bounce back to avoid defeat at Hertha this weekend.

Over 2.5 Goals

While positive results have been difficult for Hertha to achieve, they have at least, been excellent value in the entertainment stakes in recent weeks and more net-shredding action is on the menu when Die Alte Dame host Cologne on Saturday. Hertha’s last six games in the Bundesliga averaged a healthy 3.5 goals per 90 minutes and it’s also worth noting that each of their meetings with Cologne last term produced four goals. There is plenty to chew on here and bettors are advised to consider backing over 2.5 goals to hit the net again at the Olympiastadion Berlin.
