    Monchengladbach’s improvement set to continue in German capital

    On Saturday evening, Hertha Berlin host Monchengladbach at the Olympiastadion, as both teams look to move up the Bundesliga table.

    Hertha Berlin have endured a poor start to the new Bundesliga season, as Pal Dardai’s team currently sit 13th place in the German top-flight table.

    A points tally of just nine from their opening eight league games means that the capital team are just three points above the relegation play-off spot.

    However, there was a positive last time out as Hertha recorded a 2-1 win at Eintracht Frankfurt to end a run of back-to-back league defeats. The result in Frankfurt means all eight of Hertha’s league matches this season have produced over 2.5 goals.

    The home side have also not kept a clean sheet in the Bundesliga in nine matches.

    Dardai’s team have struggled for home wins of late, as Hertha have won just one of their previous five league matches at the Olympiastadion.

    Monchengladbach are just two points above the hosts in the table after an underwhelming start under head coach Adi Hutter.

    However, the Foals have now picked up seven points from their last three matches in the German top-flight after a 1-1 draw with Stuttgart last time out. The result means the visitors have lost just once in their previous five league outings.

    Such is the open nature of the middle of the table that the visitors could find themselves in the European spots if results go their way this weekend.

    A 3-1 win at Wolfsburg in their last away match ended a run of three straight defeats on their travels in the Bundesliga. The victory also ended a poor defensive run, as the visitors had previously conceded at least two goals in six of their last seven away games in German top-flight.

    Forebet predicts that Monchengladbach will record a victory in a high-scoring encounter to continue their recent improvement in league form.
