Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Following a 2-2 draw with Schalke 04, Borussia M’gladbach will look to return to winning ways when they host Hertha Berlin to their Borussia-Park on Friday evening. Die Fohlen are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. A man to watch in the home team will be Marcus Thuram, who has already found his goal-scoring touch, while both Torben Musel and Lars Stindl are out of contention with injuries.
The capital club, on the other hand, have been anything but impressive at the start of the season, and given their shaky defence, we are tempted to put our money on M’gladbach, who have turned their Borussia-Park into a real fortress. All Maolida, Plattenhardt, Alderete, Lee, and Nsona should miss out through injuries for the visiting side.
