Great result achieved by Gladbach last round (won away at Dortmund 2-1). The win is even more impressive as in stats it appears they had only one shot on target but somehow managed to score twice…
Of course Gladbach were very lucky to get that result, especially when they were cornered for most of the game and Dortmund played around with chances. But that kind of game suits Gladbach, as they love to sit back and strike on counters, rather than controlling the game, applying constant pressure and struggling to open up opponents. They tried that two weeks ago against Augsburg and ended up losing 2-1.
The win against Dortmund will give Gladbach wings and they will be even more aggressive than usual against Hertha, attitude which may easily backfire.
Hosts will miss central midfielder Nordtveit due to suspension.
If at home Hertha know no fear and are hostile in-front of every opponent, away from home they adopt a more defensive and cunning strategy. Being a bit more careful works better for Hertha as they got more points away than at home so far this season.
Some may say Gladbach should win easily because of the performance last round, but exactly because of that they will be more careless than usual. Hertha have the power and the experience to take advantage of that.
The price of 1.81 from Ladbrokes for Hertha or draw is just too valuable to miss.
