Borussia Dortmund vs Hertha Berlin Prediction

For our Borussia Dortmund vs Hertha Berlin prediction, we're opting for a 4-2 home victory for the Yellows.

Erling Braut Haaland's final game for Borussia Dortmund comes at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday, with Hertha Berlin the visitors in the Bundesliga encounter. The hosts have nothing left to play for after securing second place with a win last weekend, but the away side will be out to confirm their survival after failing to do so following defeat last time out.

After becoming the fastest (50 games) and youngest (21 years old) player to reach 50 Bundesliga goals earlier in the campaign, Dortmund’s Erling Haaland looks to sign off by building on his four-goal haul against Hertha in what is his final game in Germany before joining up with Manchester City.

Other than that story, there is really nothing riding on this game for Dortmund, and with their league games averaging an eye-watering 4.1 total goals per-game this season – a league high – we could be in for yet another exciting encounter.

After consecutive three defeats, Dortmund returned to their winning track in the last game. However, the BVB have done a lot better than Hertha, who are yet to win from the previous two attempts. The Old Lady were good enough to beat Dortmund in the last meeting at home but an away challenge would not be an easy task where they lost three of the recent four H2Hs. Hence, we expect the Black and Yellows to take three points at the end.

In 27 head-to-head encounters between the two sides, Borussia Dortmund hold a clear advantage. They have won 15 games, lost five and drawn seven in this particular fixture. The two clubs last faced each other last year in the Bundesliga, with =Hertha Berlin beating Borussia Dortmund 3-2.

A goal from Algerian striker Ishak Belfodil and a second-half brace from forward Marco Richter ensured victory for Hertha Berlin. Goals from attacker Julian Brandt and striker Steffen Tigges proved to be a mere consolation for Borussia Dortmund.

For our Borussia Dortmund vs Hertha Berlin prediction, we're opting for both teams to score.

Borussia Dortmund Team News

As well as Haaland, Axel Witsel will also be playing his last game for Dortmund on Saturday, after it was confirmed that the Belgian midfielder would leave the club upon the expiration of his contract in June.

A continued struggle with injuries for the hosts means that Witsel should keep his place alongside Jude Bellingham in the centre of the pitch, with Rose being very limited in the options available to him. First-choice goalkeeper Gregor Kobel remains on the sidelines, as does Mats Hummels, with fellow defenders Mateu Morey, Marcel Schmelzer and Thomas Meunier also being unavailable.

Hertha Berlin Team News

Stevan Jovetic returns to their squad following a period on the sidelines through injury, although the forward is unlikely to be preferred ahead of Davie Selke in attack.

Marvin Plattenhardt remains on the sidelines with the hip injury that saw him miss last weekend's defeat, and after picking up a similar injury himself against Mainz, the deputising Marton Dardai will also be unavailable on the left side of defence. Alexander Schwolow and Rune Jarstein are still out injured, meaning Marcel Lotka will continue in goal on the final day.
