Dortmund vs Hertha Berlin
SAT 6 JUNE 2020 – KO 5:30pm
BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Saturday evening, Dortmund host Hertha Berlin at the Signal Iduna Park, as the home side continue what looks like a forlorn challenge for the Bundesliga title.
Lucien Favre’s team are seven points behind perennial title rivals Bayern Munich, despite a recent good run of form in the German top-flight. A 6-1 win at bottom of the table Paderborn means that BVB have won seven of their last eight Bundesliga matches.
The game also saw Dortmund at their attacking best once again, as BVB scored at least two goals for the 15th time in their previous 18 matches in the German top-flight.
The only team to keep BVB out in those 18 league matches were reigning champions Bayern Munich.
Dortmund also have a stellar recent home record. The recent 1-0 defeat against Bayern ended a run of five straight home wins in the league and four straight clean sheets on home soil in the Bundesliga.
The team from the German capital have been motoring of late. They have vanquished relegation worries and suddenly the European spots are not out of reach. Bruno Labbadia’s team are currently just four points outside the top-six after a six-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga.
Last time out Hertha recorded a 2-0 win over Augsburg. The win saw the visitors score at least two goals for the sixth straight game in the German top-flight.
Hertha are unbeaten in seven away games in the Bundesliga, including winning four of their last six matches on their travels. They have also scored at least two goals in their last five away matches in the top-flight.
Dortmund look set to be without Marco Reus, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Mahmoud Dahoud due to injury.
Hertha are without the suspended Salomon Kalou. Meanwhile, they have a lengthy injury list, as Thomas Kraft, Marvin Plattenhardt, Matheus Cunha, Marius Wolf, Niklas Stark, Karim Rekik and Santiago Ascacibar could all miss out through injury.
