Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Magdeburg and Hertha Berlin will lock horns at MDCC-Arena in what is expected to be a close 2. Bundesliga encounter. Following back-to-back wins over Braunschweig and Holstein Kiel, Magdeburg shared the spoils with St Pauli in their last league match and, no doubt, they want to remain undefeated in the 2023/2024 season. Luc Castaignos is pushing for a recall to the starting XI, while both Herbert Bockhorn and Noah Kruth are out of contention with injuries. The capital club, on the other hand, rolled over Greuther Furth 5-0 at the weekend to regain a much-needed confidence.
A man to watch in the away team will be Switzerland forward Haris Tabakovic, who scored a brace against the White-Greens, but seeing that Magdeburg are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Hertha goalkeeper Marius Gersbeck is banned for the match, while all Ibrahim Maza, Myziane Maolida, and Agustin Rogel remain in the recovery room.
