Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Following three consecutive draws, Hertha Berlin will look to return to winning ways when they take on Freiburg in the Bundesliga round 9. The capital club are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Freiburg. Montenegro international Stevan Jovetic has lost his place in the starting XI, and there is every chance Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Kanga will lead the line for the hosts. Both Maolida and Gechter are major doubts, while the likes of Uremovic, Boetius, and Nsona remain in the recovery room.
Christian Streich’s men, on the other hand, are surprisingly sitting in second place ahead of the trip to Berlin. Freiburg have a chance to overtake Union Berlin in top position, but given Hertha’s four-game unbeaten run, the share of spoils is on the cards at Olympiastadion. All Lucas Holer, Roland Sallai, and Hugo Siquet should miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
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.
Highlighted Team (Freiburg):
