The wolves want to conquer the capital. After all, they have celebrated with the victory in the DFB Cup in the season 2014/15 in Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, the second largest success in its history. The squad has also turned at this time at VfL and therefore not many of the parties will be able to refer to these memories. Nevertheless, the Niedersachsen like to travel to Berlin, although the Hertha should be pleased that the VfL will be on Saturday as a guest. Since both of these clubs joined the Bundesliga in 1997, there were no more Berlin victories against any other team.
Today’s Betting Tips Hertha vs. Wolfsburg
Even before the duel on Saturday between Hertha and Wolfsburg, the prediction could be more in the direction of a home win, because the captains have come in the second half much better off the starting blocks. Currently, the team of Pal Dardai is in seventh place in the classification and currently has 28 points in the account. Wolfsburg is led directly behind, and only because they have scored three goals less. The goal difference is the same. Both clubs are expecting opportunities to be represented internationally in the upcoming season. A defeat in this direct duel would be a small step backwards. It is exciting that there were almost always over 2.5 goals in most matches with participation of the citizens of Berlin or Wolfsburg. The defensive series do not seem to have left the winter break completely behind. Therefore, it could be quite an option to give a tip on at least three goals in the duel between Hertha and Wolfsburg. As far as the outcome of the game is concerned, we see the Berliners at an advantage. The odds offered go exactly in this direction. The kick-off for the 20th matchday in the Bundesliga between Hertha BSC and VfL Wolfsburg in the Olympic Stadium will take place on 02.02.2019 at 15:30.
Hertha – Statistics & Current Form
Hertha BSC is for us something of the lucky bag of the league. On good days, the team of Pal Dardai can compete with all opponents, but the other way around is lacking in consistency, which is why the Berliners can not permanently settle in the top third of the table. This also means that we do not know exactly how we should judge Hertha on Saturday. With four points from two games, the team of Pal Dardai but started very well into the second half. Against the wolves they have the chance to increase to seven points. This has only been achieved once since the introduction of the three-point rule. The captains are well on the way. That could also be due to Marko Grujic. The Serb is apparently the key player of Hertha this season. Grujic was injured for a long time and only had six appearances in that season, but Hertha has never lost in these games.
Last weekend, it was enough at home against Schalke but only to a 2-2 draw. However, the Berlin were twice behind and were able to equalize twice by Marko Grujic and Vedad Ibisevic.
“I think a lot of Bruno Labbadia. The VfL has a good squad, they have found a team. We have to be careful. But I keep saying that if we have a good day as a team we can beat anyone at home. ” – Pal Dardai
The morale is intact and therefore we would probably neglect the odds on an away win in the game between Hertha and Wolfsburg. However, Pal Dardai knows his team will face a very tough match on Saturday. Still, he thinks his kickers are strong enough and assumes that Hertha has it in his own hands to determine the outcome of the game. This venture will probably tackle Berlin for the third time in a row with the same starting eleven. However, especially Salomon Kalou is scratching the outside with his hooves and wants to play. This could possibly also apply to Derrick Luckassen, Javairo Dilrosun, Julius Kade and Mathew Leckie, but all are not available for injury. That means probably that there should be no surprises in the Berlin formation.
Expected formation of Hertha:
Jarstein – Stark, Lustenberger, Rekik – Lazaro, Grujic, Maier, Plattenhardt – Duda – Ibisevic, Selke – Coach: Dardai

Wolfsburg – Statistics & Current Form
The feeling of having played a very good first half could soon have disappeared completely from the memories of the wolves, because in the second half there were two defeats for the team of Bruno Labbadia. So far, VfL have only lost three games in a row for the return round in 2004/05. The table currently does not allow the wolves to feel great pressure, but even if there would be a bankruptcy on Saturday in Berlin, then it could well be that the wolves are gradually passed in the classification and the dream of Europe early bursts. It could be a crucial phase for the Wolfsburg, because next it goes in the DFB Cup to Leipzig and then follows in the Bundesliga the away game at SC Freiburg. So it would be important that the Lower Saxony are fit to the point, so as not to get into a negative spiral. But we already have our doubts.
Last weekend, VfL Wolfsburg had no chance at home against Bayer Leverkusen. With 0: 3, the wolves were abgewatscht and were still relatively well served with this result, because the Werkself bombarded the case of Koen Casteels from all positions. Such a game may be allowed to the wolves in the current situation, it must not happen too often. Bruno Labbadia knows that his team’s consistency is gone.
“When all players are fit and everything goes as we imagine, we are very hard to beat. But we are still in the middle of development and therefore there are wave movements in our services. ” – Bruno Labbadia
Nevertheless, even the Wolves-Tamer thinks that his team in good shape will be hard to defeat. We are very curious to see if the form will be improved again on Saturday, as in the match between Hertha and Wolfsburg, the odds once again give VfL the outsider role. The Niedersachsen will defend themselves with a vengeance against a third defeat, but they have to do without the services of Ismaeil Azzaoui, Ignacio Camacho and Daniel Ginczek. As it looks like, it could also be very tight with the help of Admir Mehmedi and Josuha Guilavogui.
Expected formation of Wolfsburg:
Casteels – Verhaegh, Knoche, Brooks, Roussillon – Arnold – Gerhardt, Rexhbecaj, Steffen, Brekalo – Weghorst – Trainer: Labbadia
- Last matches of Wolfsburg:26.01.2019 – Wolfsburg vs. Germany Leverkusen 0: 3 (Bundesliga)

However, there has been a draw in each of the last three duels. It is noticeable that in the end many goals have been scored when Berlin and the wolves were on the lawn. This gives us the courage to give a tip on over 2.5 goals in the match between Hertha and Wolfsburg. We do not expect fireworks in this encounter, but three to four hits would not surprise us.

Therefore, we hold in the duel between Hertha and Wolfsburg, the odds of up to 2.50 on a home win for something too high. Our second choice in this match would be to bet on a triple from Hertha BSC.
