2018 season finale against Hertha BSC! On Saturday Die Roten Bullen play for the last time in the Bundesliga this season. The team must prove themselves against the Berliners (KO 15:30 CEST) and are looking for a win to qualify for Europe again.
We’ve put Hertha BSC under the microscope and looked at the possible scenarios in the race for Europe ahead of the game.
Season so far:
Hertha BSC have played a steady season and are midway in the table. The Berlin team found themselves in tenth place in the league at the end of the first half of the season, where they are still placed. Hertha can no longer climb up the table, but if they lose on Saturday and Augsburg win in Freiburg then would drop a place to eleventh.
With ten wins, ten losses and 13 draws, Hertha have 43 points, of which 24 have come in the second half of the season. They’ve picked up five wins and seven draws in their home ground, the Olympiastadion, this season.
The capital club were beaten twice by Leipzig last season. They got their own back in the first game of the current season with a 3-2 win in the Red Bull Arena. Two of the three goals came from former Leipzig man Davie Selke, who is Hertha’s top scorer this season with ten goals and four assists, together with Salomon Kalou (11 goals, three assists).

- 31st matchday: Eintracht Frankfurt 0-3 Hertha BSC
