Team News: VfL Wolfsburg
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the VfL Wolfsburg gaffer Oliver Glasner to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Josip Brekalo (Concussion) will miss out. John Anthony Brooks will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Hertha Berlin
Hertha BSC boss Pál Dárdai has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Jordan Torunarigha (Hip Injury), Marvin Plattenhardt (Adductor problems), Dedryck Boyata (Foot Injury) and Javairô Dilrosun (Ligament Injury) miss out here.
In this match, Hertha Berlin will likely create enough chances to break down this VfL Wolfsburg outfit, but that might not quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We can see a 2-1 winning margin for VfL Wolfsburg at the end of the match. Definitely a tough call.
