Our match prediction:
Round 26 of the Bundesliga will be opened with a battle for the 3rd place between Hertha BSC and Schalke 04. Die Königsblauen recorded back-to-back victories against Hamburger (3-2) and Koln (3-1), managed to climb to fourth in the overall standings and came just a point behind die Alte Dame. Pal Dardai’s charges ended their three-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga with a defeat at the hands of Hamburger (2-0). Even though the Old Lady re-mained in third, André Breitenreiter’s men are breathing down their neck and a triumph is needed against their next opponents. Hertha recorded their last victory at Olympic Stadium almost ten years ago, since then Schalke achieved four wins and two draws in Berlin, but the capital club are a tough nut to crack on home soil this term, with a single defeat from the be-ginning of the season. This is why we predict that the host will take all three points this time out.
