Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back losses to the likes of Werder Bremen and Leipzig, Hertha Berlin recorded a 2-0 victory over rock-bottom Darmstadt at the weekend. Thanks to the triumph the capital club moved one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League and they will be looking to cement their spot in top six with a win over Bayer Leverkusen on the last day of the season. Hertha are not regarded as good travelers, but they have been impressive at their Olympiastadion this season and we predict that they will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football game against Bayer Leverkusen. Thanks to a draw with Koln the BayArena outfit secured the Bundesliga survival and, as a result, they have nothing to play for in Saturday’s match. Bayer have been playing below expectations this season and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to spoil Hertha’s party at Olympiastadion.
