Today's Predictions for Hoffenheim vs Hertha Berlin

Two of the division’s prime relegation candidates meet on Saturday when Hoffenheim take on Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga. Read our top Augsburg vs Schalke predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Both Teams to Score

Hoffenheim’s relegation six-pointer against Hertha Berlin on Saturday pits the Bundesliga’s worst home record against the division’s worst record on the road, so bettors should avoid match result markets this weekend. Instead, our first Hoffenheim vs Hertha Berlin prediction recommends a stake on both teams to score. Hoffenheim have kept only two clean sheets at home this term, while Hertha have shut out their hosts just once since August, and with both defences among the league’s worst, we expect to see both backlines breached.

Over 3.5 Cards

The second of our football predictions today dips into a more of a niche area and we’re tipping the teams to collect over 3.5 cards between them on Saturday. Tensions should be high in this crucial relegation battle showdown and we expect the tackles to fly at the PreZero Arena. Hoffenheim (58) and Hertha (52) rank second and third in the Bundesliga for total cards collected in 2022/23, and the match official should be in for a busy afternoon when these hot-headed outfits collide.

Hertha Berlin

Jean-Paul Boetius, Chidera Ejuke and Kelian Nsona are all out of action for Hertha Berlin, while Kevin Prince Boateng is a slight doubt with an illness. Die Alte Dame have avoided defeat in three of their last five matches, though they seem to be doing all of their best work on home soil.
