Hertha Berlin’s stay in the Bundesliga is already over, but they will complete their schedule for the season on Saturday when they visit European-chasing Wolfsburg. A victory for the hosts could lift them into the Europa League places.
The pressure in this final round matchday clash will be on Wolfsburg, as they remain in the hunt for a Europa League finish this term. However, they will need to claim maximum points to stand any chance of finishing in the top six. Wolfsburg currently sits a point behind Bayer Leverkusen in the standings, while just a single goal separates the sides in the goal difference section. That means that Wolfsburg will likely need to finish at least one point higher than Leverkusen, making a win over Hertha Berlin essential.
However, Wolfsburg will need to bounce back this weekend, as they have suffered two defeats in their previous three matches in the league. But, they have still landed three wins over their last five. Wolfsburg’s European dreams were dealt a blow last weekend, as they were beaten 2-0 on the road by Freiburg.
Hertha Berlin’s stay in the Bundesliga will come to an end at the conclusion of the season, as they are already destined to finish at the bottom of the standings. No side has lost more games in the Bundesliga this term than Hertha, while they have also picked up the fewest wins over 33 matches.
They come into this final fixture having won just once over their last five, but they have also suffered three defeats over that period. However, the confidence would have grown slightly following last week’s performance, as they picked up a hard-fought draw at home against Bochum.
Wolfsburg vs Hertha Berlin Head to Head
Wolfsburg has a fine record in this fixture, as they have won three of the previous four clashes between the sides. That includes a commanding 5-0 win in the previous meeting between the sides this season. However, this exact fixture last season saw the points shared following a 0-0 draw.
Wolfsburg vs Hertha Berlin Prediction
The pressure will be on Wolfsburg this weekend, as they must claim maximum points if they are to finish in a Europa League spot. That would appear to be the most likely outcome this weekend, as they come up against a Hertha side that have been short on victories throughout the campaign.
