Our football match prediction:
Hertha are enjoying a very successful season and they will be looking to put icing on the cake with a top-six finish. The capital club sit in the Europa League berth ahead of the visit of Wolfsburg, but they are only three points clear of seventh-placed Koln in the Bundesliga standings. Pal Dardai’s men suffered a 1-0 loss to Mainz at Opel Arena at the weekend, but it is well known that Hertha are a real force to be reckoned with at home. Die Alte Dame are after their 12th home win of the season and they are certainly capable of beating the Wolves at their Olympiastadion. Wolfsburg impressed in a 3-0 win over Ingolstadt at the weekend, but they are still sitting in the danger zone in the Bundesliga table. Considering that both teams are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s football match, we predict that fans will see goals galore at Olympiastadion.
Highlighted Player (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.
Highlighted Team (Wolfsburg):
Wolfsburg are a German football club founded in the aftermath of the World War II (1945). Die Wolfe (The Wolves) wear green and white shirts and they play their home games at Volkswagen Arena. The capacity of the stadium is 30,000 and it was opened on 13 December, 2002. It is well known that German car manufacturer Volkswagen are the club’s main sponsors. Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga trophy in 2009 and the likes of Edin Dzeko, Grafite and Zvjezdan Misimovic were part of the club’s golden generation. You should bear in mind that Grafite and Dzeko scored 54 goals between each other in the 2008/2009 Bundesliga campaign and that the team clinched the trophy thanks to a 5-1 win over Werder Bremen on 23 May, 2009. Die Wolfe won the German Cup trophy in 2015, with the team beating star-studded Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the title game. Wolfsburg are a team that has no bitter rivals in German football.
