Cologne is going to welcome Hertha BSC Berlin in a meeting of the 23rd round of the German Bundesliga. Check out our soccer prediction.
The hosts are located in the middle of the standings, giving the right of participation in European club tournaments. The guests from Berlin, maybe a little surprisingly occupy the third place and are involved in the battle for a place in the Champions League in the fall. So this fight is of extreme importance for both teams. Cologne will be looking for their first success over their opponents in five meetings since their last such dates back to before four seasons.
Cologne lost with 1:0 in their visit of Borussia Mgladbah in the previous round and so broke a series of three matches without a loss in the Bundesliga. The Rams are on the 9th place with an asset of 29 points, but a win would supposedly rank them to the teams fighting for Euro participation, so that they will not save forces in pursuit of the three points. The great expectations of hosts are connected to the team`s scorers Anthony, who has made the modest 10 goals so far in the Championship. He will have to do without its partner in charge of the team - Simon Zoler who has to heal a trauma.
Hertha Berlin will be looking for its first win in the Bundesliga after the resumption of the second title in the Championship. As in the previous five meetings after the pause there is one defeat and four draws. In the previous round came to a 1:1 draw against VfL Wolfsburg. As this point was won thanks to the excellent interventions of goalkeeper Rune Jorsajn. The coach Pal Derdai has a few problems to solve before this match. One of the most constant players of the team Vladimir Derrida was punished, but Julian Sheeber, Sebastian Langakamp and Johan van den Berg are with injuries.
