This Sunday sees Hertha go head to head with Freiburg at the Olympiastadion – Kick-off 5:30pm GMT.

With Champion’s League positions always a key motivation, second placed Freiburg remain in contention as they travel to fourteenth placed Hertha.

It’s seven points so far for Hertha this season, going into this meeting

Hertha have 90 minutes to break their recent habit of poor, or disappointing results, following a dissapointing home draw to Hoffenheim and Mainz.

Also, a draw statistic of three in three meetings is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Sandro Schwarz’s men wishes for ultimately. With a fourteenth position in the league and 1 wins, 3 losses and 4 draws, they currently have seven points in the League having won one game, drawn four meetings, and lost three fixtures.

Playing at home, Hertha have drawn three games and lost one game.

A victory for Hertha would put them on 10 points.

Going into Sunday’s game, Sandro Schwarz without four of his players, due to illness or injury.

SC Freiburg go into this game with 17 points secured

Freiburg will hope to increase their wins in a row, having secured a 2-1 victory over Mainz in their last fixture.

Also, Freiburg keep finding ways to win, having secured five victories in their last eight fixtures is astonishing this season, a form has placed them in clear contention for Champion’s League qualification. Their position is second in the League and they have 17 points, that is, 5W, 1L and 2D having won five meetings, drawn two matches, and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Freiburg have won three fixtures and drawn one game.

A win in this fixture would take SC Freiburg’s points to 20 in the League.

Good atacking and defensive team

It’s an easy statement to make, but to win you simply have to score more goals than your opponent. Freiburg have been consistently applying this principle, whilst remaining defensively solid as a unit this season, with six goals in their previous matches. Freiburg have a good scoring record this season, with 12 netted so far. Their stand out attacking players have been Michael Gregoritsch (4), Vincenzo Grifo (3), and Matthias Ginter (2).

Injury and illness have depleted Christian Streich’s Freiburg and they will likely be missing two key personnel for Sunday’s match.
