Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hertha Berlin and Greuther Furth take on each other in the opening match of the Bundesliga round 5. The capital club desperately needed a win at Bochum, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their three-game losing run. There have been over 2.5 goals in each of Hertha’s first four games of the season, and we are positive that the hosts will stick to their attacking style of play.
Keep in mind, though, that all Torunarigha, Klunter, Selke, Jovetic, Plattenhardt, Dardai, Piatek, and Jarstein are out of contention for the hosts. The newcomers, on the other hand, do not seem to be competitive at this level, and given Hertha’s display in the triumph over Bochum, home win should be considered. All Gideon Jung, Robin Luca Kehr, and Jessic Ngankam are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
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.
