Our football match prediction:
Borussia Dortmund have been in a splendid form in Bundesliga of late. The Millionaires outclassed Bayer Leverkusen at their Signal-Iduna-Park at the weekend, with the team extending their winning run in the league to three games. Thomas Tuchel’s team have been impressive in front of goal in recent weeks, but it is well known that Hertha Berlin are tough to beat at home. Anyhow, we predict that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his teammates will find the net in Saturday’s football match. The capital club aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Hamburger and, no doubt, the hosts would be happy with one point from the match. When the two teams met in the German Cup earlier in 2017 Borussia Dortmund defeated Hertha on penalties and we would not be surprised if fans see a closer encounter in the league clash as well. A man to watch in the home team will be former Chelsea ace Salomon Kalou, who scored in the DFB Pokal game against the Millionaires.
Highlighted Player (Pekarik):
Peter Pekarik is a Slovakian defender born on 30th October 1986 in Zilina, and has so far made over 60 appearances for the country’s national team. The full-back spent his early career at boyhood club Zilina, and his big break came in January 2009, when he joined German giants Wolfsburg. Pekarik in turn helped his new side lift their first ever Bundesliga trophy in his debut season, but eventually lost his place in the starting line-up and decided to join Hertha after a season-long loan at Kayserispor. The right-sided defender has since featured in over 70 league matches for the Olympiastadion outfit, who enjoyed a great deal of success during the 2015/2016 campaign. Pekarik has been one of Slovakia’s most consistent performers since making his debut in 2006, and he started three games for the team at the 2010 World Cup. Operating alongside Martin Skrtel, Kornel Salata and Tomas Hubocan, Pekarik was a part of the team that secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Borussia Dortmund):
1909 by eighteen footballers from Dortmund. Die Schwarzgelben (The Black and Yellows) play their home games at Signal Iduna Park, but the stadium’s original name is Westfalenstadion. The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football. Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well. Borussia’s biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby.
