Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Wolfsburg will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Schalke 04 and Bayer Leverkusen when they host Hertha at their Volkswagen Arena on Saturday afternoon. The Wolves kicked off the new Bundesliga campaign in style, but they surely do not want to stop now. Wolfsburg are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Hertha and we are positive that they are going to find the net on Matchday 3. The capital club made a flying start to the season as well, with the team beating the likes of Nurnberg and Schalke 04. Both sides are brimming with confidence ahead of Saturday’s football match and we predict that both teams are going to find the net at Volkswagen Arena. You should bear in mind that Wolfsburg and Hertha played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in their last meeting in Lower Saxony.
Highlighted Player (Admir Mehmedi):
Born in FYR Macedonia, Admir Mehmedi moved to Switzerland with his parents at the age of 2, and no wonder he decided to represent the Rossocrociati at international level. The forward made a name for himself at FC Zurich, scoring 19 goals in 84 league outings to catch the eye of bigger clubs. Mehmedi surprisingly opted to join Dynamo Kiev in January 2012, but he would soon leave war-torn Ukraine, signing a permanent deal with Bundesliga outfit Freiburg after impressing while on season-long loan. As Freiburg got relegated to the second division, the forward was given a chance to remain in the top flight by Bayer Leverkusen, and he grabbed it with both hands despite knowing that it would not be easy for him to secure regular playing time. In spite of the lack of first team action at Bay Arena, Mehmedi remained a part of the Switzerland national team, mostly due to his versatility and being able to operate on either wing or as second striker. He has so far made over 40 outings for Nati, making four appearances and scoring one goal at the 2014 World Cup.
