Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Olympiastadion will host Saturday’s Bundesliga game between Hertha Berlin and Bayer Leverkusen. The capital club desperately needed a win against Augsburg, and they managed to get one, with the team recording their first win of the season. Hertha footballers have regained a much-needed confidence, and they are surely capable of making life difficult for Bayer’s shaky defence. Stevan Jovetic faces race against clock to be fit for the match, while all Omar Alderete, Dong-jun Lee, and Kelian Nsona continue to miss out with injuries.
The BayArena outfit experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Freiburg, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on the hosts. The likes of Bellarabi, Lunev, Adli, and Wirtz are out of contention with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Alexander Schwolow):
One of the key cogs in Freiburg’s push for Bundesliga survival in 2017/18, Alexander Schwolow remains remembered for his impressive displays against some of league’s biggest sides which proved decisive in his team’s relegation battle.
A product of Freiburg academy, Alexander Schwolow was forced to work for his place under the spotlight and it wasn’t until his loan spell in the Third Division with Armenia Bielefeld in 2014 that Schwolow earned his place between the sticks at his parent club. His stock went through a rapid rise in 2016/17 campaign when Alexander Schwolow played a great part in his team’s seventh-place finish and a place in the UEFA Europa league qualification.
Schwolow’s impressive goalkeeping exploits got his name written in the notebook of some of Europe’s biggest clubs and it is fair to say we could see his move abroad in foreseeable future. Alexander Schwolow represented Germany in U18, U19 and U20 categories but has yet to earn a senior cap.
