Our football match prediction:
Bayer Leverkusen desperately needed a win against Freiburg at the weekend and they managed to get one. Heiko Herrlich’s troops proved their worth in the 4-0 victory over Christian Streich’s men and, no doubt, they regained a much-needed confidence. The BayArena outfit aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but beating Hertha Berlin on the road is easier said than done. The capital club aim to extend their unbeaten run at their Olympiastadion and we predict that they are going to grab something from Wednesday’s football match. Hertha did well to hold Hoffenheim to a 1-1 draw at the weekend and, no doubt, they are capable of making life difficult for Bayer Leverkusen. However, seeing that Heiko Herrlich’s team produced a splendid performance in the 4-0 win over Freiburg, there is every chance the two teams are going to share the spoils in Berlin.
