Hertha BSC is welcoming Eintracht Frankfurt to Olympiastadion in round 2 in German Bundesliga.
Hertha was terrible in the preseason and in the DFB Pokal match, but they were outstanding in their first game in Bundesliga last week. Hertha was playing against Werder on the road last week, and they have had 56% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. With 2 scored goals in each half, Hertha has won this game 1-4. Cunha, Lukebakio, Pekarik, and Cordoba have all scored 1 goal for Hertha as of right now. Darida has added 2 assists, while Mittelstadt and Leckie each have 1 assist. Ascacibar and Dilrosu are both injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. Thanks to this fantastic result in the first game of the season, Hertha is in second place with 3 points, and I know it’s only temporary, but I bet it feels nice for Hertha to be so close to the top. I need to be honest, I wasn’t expecting for Hertha to start the season with a win, but we will see if they can stay consistent or if this was just a fluke.
Eintracht has been solid in the preseason, and at the end of the last season, but they disappointed me in their first Bundesliga game last week. Eintracht was hosting Arminia, and they were the better team with 62% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 14 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. Eintracht was losing in the 51st minute, but they tied the result in the 62nd minute. After that, Eintracht was attacking but they couldn’t score another goal, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. N’Dicka and Willems are both injured, and they will miss this game. Andre Silva has scored the only goal for Eintracht so far this season, while Bas Dost added an assist. Eintracht is a good team that can play good soccer when they are fully focused, which is something they lacked last season, and thanks to that, Eintracht will not be playing in the Europa League this season. So far, Eintracht is doing well in the DFB Pokal, and they will need to go as far as possible in this competition because there are a lot of good teams in the Bundesliga, and I’m not confident Eintracht can play consistently well to end up in the top 6 this season.
Hertha has been dominant at home against Eintracht, and the trends are on Hertha’s side. I think Eintracht is the team with more quality and depth here, but they are still figuring out their offense. Hertha has been playing well in their first game, and they are in good goalscoring form. I think this game could go either way, which is why I will pick something on goals here.
