Hertha BSC vs. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim Predictions, Betting tips, and Match preview

Hertha BSC vs. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim predictions for Friday’s German Bundesliga clash at Olympiastadion Berlin. Hertha BSC look to return to their great home streak and close the gap to the 4th placed - TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. 

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim (4th in Bundesliga) travel to Berlin on Friday for their German Bundesliga Matchday 26 clash at Hertha on the back of a 1-0 home win over Bayer Leverkusen, hoping to extend the 5-point gap behind them and possibly take on the top 3. With Hertha BSC (5th in Bundesliga) in great home form and holding the best German Bundesliga record at home, this will obviously be a very tough task despite their fine form.

Hertha BSC have suffered a disappointing 4-2 loss at Koln in their last away from home match, but this has only made it 6 consecutive losses away from home and restated their woes on the road. Hertha BSC's amazing form in front of the home fans has been what’s keeping them in the top of the table, remaining intact with 4 wins and 1 draw in last 5 matches there. We will back Hertha BSC to keep it up and bag all 3 points in this clash @ 13/8 with Bet365.

Hertha BSC have held Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw, conceding a last-minute equalizer, and earned wins over Eintracht Frankfurt (2-0) and Borussia Dortmund (2-1) in their last 3 home matches. It’s a longshot to expect TSG 1899 Hoffenheim struggling for points on their away from home matches (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim bagged 2 draws in their last 4 away from home matches) can now deny them the next episode of their great home series. 

Our tipsters fancy both teams to score, with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim netting at least 1 in all of their last 14 matches and Over 2.5 goals looks a great bet, coming @ Evens with Bet365. Hertha BSC have bagged 2 or more goals in 10 of their 13 matches at Olympiastadion, and they’ll need to confirm their attacking ambitions if they want to lock the 3 points.
