On April 14, Veltins Arena (Gelsenkirchen) will host the match of the 28th round of the German Bundesliga, in which Schalke will compete with Hertha. The battle will start at 20:30 CET.
The team has relatively recently achieved the status of German vice-champion – it is impossible for everyone else, by default, to appear higher than Bayern in the current realities. Then, there was a kind of rollback – there was a shameful relegation into the second division. There, “the Cobalts” were able to do their best and returned as fast as possible. Still, being at the so-called old-new level, the club did not look competitive for a long time. Only the end of winter brought a successful series. Eight rounds in a row, right up to the very end of March, were without misfires – there were a couple of victories and a lot of draws, mostly 0-0 ones. The higher mentioned results made it possible to get close to the neighbours in the standings and made the chances of survival real. April, however, started with a 0-3 score in the battle against Bayer Leverkusen. Moreover, the struggle with Hoffenheim became goalless for the team – this time everything ended in a 0-2 defeat.
The club claimed high places in the standings after the arrival of new investors. Nevertheless, the costs were not confirmed by at least some positive results, the situation was full of a kind of disappointment. There is no surprise that the fight for survival continues for the second draw in a row. A victory in the match against Hamburg in the play-offs saved the team from relegation in 2022. There were hopes that the new mentor, Sandro Schwarz, would be able to ensure progress, but even being under his rule, “the Old Lady” looked consistently faded, and may completely repeat the results of the previous championship. It was not possible to win in the spring (during the decisive segment of the tournament). Although a draw with Freiburg, which happened in April, can be described as a plus for the Berlin team. There were chances to get the points in the match with RB Leipzig, but “the Bulls”, which were angry because of previous misfires, won due to Haidara’s only ball.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Hertha has not lost for the 5 previous head-to-head matches in a row. Moreover, 3 last battles were won by the team.
Bookmakers believe that the hosts from Gelsenkirchen will win. Still, it is reasonable to mention that one who opens the score will get the victory – thus, we bet on “total: under 2.5” (odd: 1.8).
