Hertha BSC is hosting Bayer Leverkusen at Olympiastadion in round 33 of German Bundesliga.
After a fantastic start for Hertha when the season was restarted, Hertha has lost their last 3 straight games, and thanks to that, Hertha is no longer in the competition for the Europa League, but they are safely outside the relegation zone. Offensively, Hertha has been good with 45 scored goals, while they have been shaky defensively with 57 conceded goals. Hertha is now in 11th place in the standings with 38 points. Ibisevic and Lukebakio have both scored 6 goals for Hertha this season, while Darida has 5 assists. Ascacibar, Wolf, Kraft, Netz, Leckie, Dilrosun, Mittelstadt, Rekik, and Skjalbred are all injured for Hertha, talking about the field hospital. Kalou is suspended, while Boyata will skip this game because of the red card. in their last match against Freiburg, Hertha has had 51% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 82% of the correct passes. Hertha lost this match 2-1. All in all, a decent season for Hertha, they might get another spot up or down, but this is their maximum this season, and they are satisfied with the results.
Leverkusen has been playing good soccer since the season was restarted and they have only 2 losses in their last 8 games, including the DFB Pokal. Leverkusen is in 4th place in the standings with 60 points, the last spots that lead into the Champions League, but the problem for Leverkusen is that there are 3 teams in the battle for that spot. Oh boy, the last two games of the season are going to be excited. In their last Bundesliga game against Koln at home last weekend, Leverkusen was good with 67% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, and 85% of the correct passes. Leverkusen was dominant and determined to win this game, and they deservedly so did. The final result was 3-1. Havertz is the leading goal scorer for Leverkusen with 12 goals so far this season, but judging by the headlines in the German newspapers, he will be leaving Leverkusen at the end of the season and most likely go to Bayern Munich. Lars Bender and Karim Bellarabi are both injured and will not be playing in this match. It’s hard to say which team is the best between Leipzig, Leverkusen, and M’gladbach, and a lot of it will depend on who are these teams playing in the last two games, but Leverkusen certainly has a good chance to keep their 4th place. Overall, Leverkusen has been shaky on the defensive end, but they will need to be at their best in these last two games.
Hertha is in a terrible form as of late, while Leverkusen is constantly playing well. Since Hertha is out of the competition for the Europa League, and their injury list is quite long. Leverkusen is the better team and they need the win more.
