Reason For Hertha Berlin vs Schalke Predictions

  • Three of Schalke’s last five Bundesliga games have seen under 2.5 goals.
  • Three of Hertha Berlin’s last five Bundesliga games have seen under 2.5 goals.
  • Schalke have scored under 1.5 goals in four of their last six Bundesliga games.
  • Hertha Berlin have scored under 1.5 goals in six of their last eight Bundesliga games.

Hertha Berlin have seen low-scoring games recently

Hertha Berlin will host Schalke this Friday in the German Bundesliga. Hertha will hope to build on last weekend’s win here as they host sixth-placed Schalke. Meanwhile, Schalke will hope to bounce back from last weekend’s heavy defeat. 

Hertha Berlin’s recent Bundesliga games have often delivered low-scoring contests. Hertha have seen under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last five Bundesliga games. They have also seen under 2.5 goals scored in two of their last three Bundesliga home games, the exception being their 4-0 loss to Bayern Munich. 

Hertha’s recent goalscoring record hasn’t been particularly impressive. They have scored under 1.5 goals in six of their last eight Bundesliga games. Hertha have also scored under 1.5 goals in each of their last four Bundesliga home games. Hertha have scored a relatively low total of just seven goals over the past eight games. Only two Bundesliga sides, Fortuna Dusseldorf and Werder Bremen have scored fewer goals than Hertha Berlin during this period.

Schalke have also been short of goals recently

Friday’s visitors Schalke have also seen plenty of low-scoring games in recent weeks. Three of Schalke’s last five Bundesliga games have seen under 2.5 goals scored. In addition, Schalke have scored under 1.5 goals in four of their last six Bundesliga games. 

Furthermore, they have also scored under 1.5 goals in each of their last three Bundesliga away games. This doesn’t bode well for them going into Friday’s game versus a Hertha Berlin side who have conceded under 1.5 goals in four of their last five Bundesliga games. 

These two may be tough to separate at full-time

We feel neither of these two teams appear particularly likely to come away with all three points from this Thursday’s game. We feel neither of these two sides have enjoyed a positive enough run of form in recent weeks to go into this game as the clear favourites. 

Firstly, Hertha Berlin have failed to win five of their last six Bundesliga home games. They have also won just three of their nine Bundesliga home games all season. Meanwhile, Schalke have failed to win each of their last three Bundesliga away games. They have won just four of their nine Bundesliga away games this season. 

We feel this fixture may be unlikely to deliver a lot of action in front of goal. We are backing under 2.5 goals to be scored here. We also feel a 1-1 draw is a likely outcome.
