Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hertha Berlin and Wolfsburg go head to head at Olympiastadion in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Sunday’s program. The capital club aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Leipzig, but they will have to do it without suspended defender Deyoraiso Zeefuik, who was sent off in the Red Bull Arena clash. On-loan midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is rated doubtful after he was tested positive for coronavirus.
The Wolves, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over newcomers Arminia Bielefeld. Wolfsburg are undefeated in the 2020/21 Bundesliga season, and they are surely capable of matching Hertha in Berlin. Considering that the hosts are on a four-game losing run in the German elite division, we are tempted to put our money on Wolfsburg, who are eyeing a place in European competitions. Josuha Guilavogui is unlikely to feature for the visitors after suffering a muscle injury in the win over Arminia.
