Our football match prediction:
Hamburger will be looking to give fans some cheer following a heartbreaking 8-0 defeat to Bayern Munich. Die Rothosen failed to make life difficult for FCB at Allianz Arena, but they are definitely capable of grabbing something from Sunday’s football game. The relegation strugglers sit in 16th place in the Bundesliga standings and, no doubt, they will fight tooth and nail in the clash against the capital club. Hamburger recorded three wins in previous four home fixtures in the league and seeing that Hertha’s displays on the road leave a lot to be desired, we predict that they will return to winning ways on Matchday 23. Pal Dardai’s troops recorded a 2-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt at their Olympiastadion, but the visitors are on a four-match losing run on the travels and we would not be surprised if they return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at Volksparkstadion die Rothosen emerged triumphant (2-0) and the history is likely to repeat itself.
