Hertha Berlin vs Wolfsburg Prediction & Match Preview

Sunday, August 25 – 12:00 EST – Olympiastadion

Hertha Berlin began the season with a road game against defending champions Bayern Munich. This is a fixture no team in the league envy’s and yet history would show that Hertha Berlin would not have been bothered. They have come out with points in 5 of their last 7 games against powerhouse Bayern Munich. Indeed they did not play scared football in this one and they will look to be just as dynamic against Wolfsburg. Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic lead the charge in the midfield and he will look to build on his solid outing. He is 23 years old and after a few unsuccessful loan spells it is do or die for the Serbian. He must prove his quality and it looks like Hertha Berlin will be the place he succeeds in doing so.

Wolfsburg have changed quite a bit during the offseason under new manager Oliver Glasner. The somewhat untested Austrian will be looking to prove that the club’s hierarchy made the correct choice when they decided to hire him. So far so good as he secured a home victory against Koln on the opening day. However, Hertha Berlin are no joke and his competition will be tough in this contest. Glasner did not bring in many new faces. Instead, the club has opted to stick with their core footballers who played extremely well last season. The likes of Maximilian Arnold and Yunus Mali will be a handful for opposing midfielders all year long.
