Hertha BSC vs Borussia Dortmund begins 16.03.2019 at 18:30 CET
Hertha has no worries, it occupies a place around mid-table and has nice stash of points that prevents it to slide toward the drop zone. European positions are within its reach but to get there Hertha must play much better; it needs a winning streak of sort to reach the sixth place. If the seventh positioned team goes to Europe this season then Hertha has realistic chance to get there, although it current shape is not promising. It only occasionally plays a good match like it was the case in Monchengladbach several rounds ago when they won Borussia 3-0.
After that came two solid matches; drew with Werder and minimal defeat by Bayern. Two rounds ago they won Mainz 2-1 at home after turning the result up-side down, while in the previous round they lost in Freiburg by the same result. Compared to match against Mainz Lazaro and Selke didn’t play, while Maier came off the bench in the second half. Forward Ibisevic was the only one who scored for his team but then he turned into a tragic here as he scored an own goal. Lazaro is back now, while Selke should be reserve.
Probable lineups Hertha BSC: Jarstein – Stark, Rekik, Torunarigha – Lazaro, Grujic, Maier, Mittelstadt – Duda – Ibisevic, Kalou
Borussia plays only the Bundesliga since recently and that should make their job easier regarding chance to win the title. Right after they lost for the second time to Tottenham and were eliminated from the Champions League they won in the national championship. Borussia faced Stuttgart at home and many believed in their victory, however, they were favourites to win in Augsburg two rounds ago but they lost and they Bayern equalised with them in number of points. Match with Stuttgart wasn’t easy for them, although, the final 3-1 perhaps suggest a different story.
No goals were scored in the first half and Borussia scored the first one from penalty in 60 minute, but the guest quickly equalised and the pressure increased. P. Alcacer prevented new mishap who scored the second goal six minutes before the end but the real here was Pulisic who came off the bench several minutes earlier. He assisted Alcacer and then scored the third goal to verify victory. Manager Favre had sent a very offensive team on the pitch but now he will make some changes. Weigl could play stopper, Witsel is injured and Delaney goes in midfield, while Pulisic will be again an ace up in Weigl’s sleeve.
Probable lineups Borussia Dortmund: Burki – Hakimi, Akanji, Weigl, Diallo – M. Gotze, Delaney, Reus – Sancho, P. Alcacer, Guerreiro
