Our match prediction:
The clash between the Foals and Hertha probably will draw the most attention in the following round. Andre Schubert’s charges recorded a defeat against Schalke in the previous round, which removed them from a top-four spot, so die Fohlen need a win in order to stay in the race for Champions League next season. Die Alte Dame achieved back-to-back league wins against Schalke (2-0) and Ingolstadt (2-1), which resulted with them being four points in front of the Royal Blues, so they can afford a slip-up against Borussia Monchengladbach in the upcoming encounter. The team from North Rhine-Westphalia are on a four-game undefeated run against the Old Lady on home ground, Pal Dardai’s side recorded a single win from their last ten visits to Stadion im Borussia-Park, and we consider the hosts as favourites this time out, especially bearing in mind that the Foals won their last four home fixtures, with a single conceded goal in the spell.
