Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Hertha and Hamburger SV go head to head in what promises to be an interesting 2. Bundesliga derby at the Olympiastadion. The hosts will be without key defensive figures Bence Dardai and Agustin Rogel due to injuries, exacerbating their recent struggles at the back. With no suspended players, Hertha face a tough test against a determined Hamburger SV side aiming for automatic promotion.
HSV, eager to rectify their previous 4-3 defeat to Karlsruher, head into the match with a cohesive team mindset and a hunger for redemption. The return of Ransford-Yeboah Königsdörffer from international duty further bolsters their attacking prowess. Given Hertha's recent form and defensive frailties, an away win for Hamburger SV appears probable, as they exhibit a stronger team dynamic compared to the out-of-form hosts.
