Tip Reasoning

Berlin and Ingolstadt have had contrasting starts to the new year: Hertha find themselves as one of three sides (alongside Bremen and Hamburg) yet to earn a point in 2017 following back-to-back away defeats to Leverkusen and Freiburg. Meanwhile, Ingolstadt’s 3-1 win at home to fellow strugglers Hamburg saw them register their best win of the season and move out of the automatic relegation spots.

Hertha Berlin are the favourites here at 1/1 with bet365, which is a fantastic price given Berlin hold the 3rd best home record (W7 L1) in the Bundesliga (behind only league leaders Bayern and 2nd placed RB Leipzig). Hertha’s strong home form has stemmed from a run of fixtures against similar level opponents and the Berliners consistency has seen them score exactly 2 goals in six of their eight matches at the Olympiastadion (three 2-1 wins and three 2-0 wins). Ingolstadt have improved on the road under coach Maik Walpurgis – Ingolstadt have lost 6 of their 9 away matches (67%) this season, but have two of their last four (W2 L2) under him. However, one of these wins was a “shock” result away to Bayer Leverkusen, who have struggled with inconsistency all season, and the other against bottom of the table Darmstadt.

Regarding a correct score bet, there are notable trends in Hertha’s home and Ingolstadt’s away matches. Exactly 2 or 3 total goals were scored in 88% of Hertha’s home matches and 67% of Ingolstadt’s away matches, so at 20/21 this should also be a profitable bet. Hertha’s 1.88 goals scored per home match and Ingolstadt’s 1.56 goals conceded per away match averages means two goals for the home side seems a likelihood too (over 1.5 team goals at 11/8). Following from the above, a 2-1 home win at 8/1 seems a reasonable shout.
