Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Olympiastadion pits together Hertha and Hoffenheim. Both teams are eyeing a place in the Champions League and a lively contest appears on the horizon. The capital club suffered a 4-2 loss at Koln in their last league fixture, but they have been impressive at home so far this season. Hertha are eyeing their 11th home win of the season and we predict that Pal Dardai’s men will find the net on Matchday 26. Hoffenheim, on the other hand, have been playing above expectations in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign and they are sitting in the Champions League berth ahead of the trip to Berlin. Julian Nagelsmann’s men are on a five-game unbeaten run in the German elite division and they are definitely capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s clash. Taking everything into account, the two teams are likely to share the spoils at Olympiastadion.
Highlighted Player (Vladimir Darida):
Born in Sokolov on 8 August 1990, Vladimir Darida is yet another Czech Republic footballer who has made a name for himself in German Bundesliga, although not before leaving his mark on the domestic competition. The highly rated midfielder, who can successfully cover a number of positions in the middle of the park, enjoyed several successful years at Viktoria Plzen, making no fewer than 28 appearances in European competitions, before deciding to leave for SC Freiburg. Darida performed so well in his first two Bundesliga campaign that he was purchased by Hertha Berlin when his previous employers got relegated to the second division, and he in turn helped the Olympiastadion outfit enjoy a thoroughly impressive campaign. Darida was a surprise inclusion to the Czech Republic squad for the Euro 2012 finals, but there were no surprises when he played a key role to help Repre qualify for the Euro 2016 tournament. He impressed playing in a more advanced role in the absence of Tomas Rosicky, and he has already earned more than 30 caps for the national team.
