Hertha vs Fortuna for the German Bundesliga championship match on Friday at Olympia Berlin Stadium.
This Friday, October 4th, Hertha against Fortuna will play in the seventh round of the Bundesliga in Germany, which will be played at the Olympic stadium.
The last time the two teams met was in April this year, which ended with a 2-1 win by Fortuna.
Berlin players lost their two games against Dusseldorf last season. The Hertha manager acknowledged revising these two games again to try not to repeat the same mistakes of the past, mainly because their rivals coach remains the same.
Hertha coach Covic will be able to count on all his players for this match after Plattenhardt has shown better fitness in recent days, although it is unclear whether he is ready to start in the early eleven.
They’ve grown in confidence as they achieved two consecutive Bundesliga victories after starting the tournament with four straight games without a win (one draw and three losses). Therefore, they are currently in the tenth position of the table.
They are not having the best start of the season possible. In six rounds, they won only one game, and it was the first of the season. They currently have five straight games without wins (four losses and one draw).
On the plus side, it should be noted that they scored in all their matches, but it was not enough to add more than the four points with which they are in position 14 of the Bundesliga.
Hertha and Fortuna are teams of a similar level. Both concede many goals from their rivals in their matches, so it will be an excellent opportunity for both to take advantage of their opponents’ mistakes in defence.
Also, Hertha starts out as a favourite because it lives a better time and plays at home.
It has to be a hard-fought match because the visiting team’s victory would prevent them from risking falling into the relegation posts. Therefore, both clubs have more than enough reason to focus on attacking their rivals.
