A look at their previous results shows us that Freiburg:
- have not won against Hertha Berlin in away games against them for the last 4 league games. They'll be keen to stop this run.
- are without a win away from home in their last 3 matches in the league.

Eduard Löwen (Muscular problems), Rune Jarstein (Corona virus), Dodi Lukebakio (Corona virus), Marvin Plattenhardt (Corona virus) and Luca Netz (Metatarsal Fracture) will not be taking part for Hertha BSC gaffer Pál Dárdai.
Team News: Freiburg
Due to a fully healthy squad to pick from, Freiburg manager Christian Streich doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this game.
Here is a game where Freiburg will need to put in a solid display to hit the back of the net against this Hertha Berlin lineup who we think will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We therefore fancy a good tussle with a 1-0 winning margin for Hertha Berlin when all is said and done.
It should be a good one.
