Hertha Berlin are looking to recover from last weekend’s humiliating loss to RB Leipzig when Freiburg travel to the Olympiastadion on Sunday for a Bundesliga clash.

Die Alte Dame was bombarded 6-0 by Die Rotten Bullen in their last game, just one month after a resounding 5-0 demolition by Bayern Munich. It was their fourth loss in six games and with just six points left, they are languishing in 12th place in the standings.

Freiburg, meanwhile, are in high spirits after outscoring Augsburg 3-0 in their last game, scoring three times in the first half thanks to Lukas Kubler, Lucas Holer and Vincenzo Grifo to claim a huge win. Surprisingly, they have yet to lose this season, winning and drawing three each in six games.

Defending champions Bayern Munich are currently the only other team to have an unbeaten record in the league.


Hertha Berlin vs Feiburg Head to Head

Hertha Berlin have only beaten Freiburg nine times in 29 games, while eight of those games have ended in defeats. Just over 40% of the clashes between the two camps ended in deadlock.

As good as Berlin is, its defense has been ruthlessly exposed by an endemic Leipzig team. Visitors will be looking to take advantage of their vulnerabilities and have good attack options to achieve that as well.

Berlin will fight tooth and nail but we are putting our money on Freiburg to narrowly win.

Prediction: Hertha Berlin 1-2 Freiburg
