Athletic Bilbao vs Hertha Berlin – Europa League: This Thursday night, Bilbao and Hertha meet in Basque soil in another match…
Of the 5th round of the Europa League’s group stage.
Bilbao occupies the 3rd place of this group J with 5 points gained, thanks to a win, 2 draws and 1 loss. This is a group where every team can still qualify, since there is only a 3-point difference between first and last place.
The Basque team is stronger when playing at the San Mamés, getting most of their points that way, not only in this competition but also in La Liga.
Hertha is in last place of this group G with 4 points, but like I’ve said before, they are only 3 points behind leaders Ostersunds.
During this campaign on the group stage, the Germans have recorded 1 win, 1 draw and 2 losses, having a goal record of 3 goals scored and 3 goals conceded.
On the Bundesliga, they are on the bottom half of the table and have an average of 2.9 goals/match (6th highest of the competition).
Athletic Bilbao vs Hertha Berlin – Betting Tip and Prediction:
We have witnessed low-scoring affairs on both clubs’ European matches.
However, and occupying the two bottom spots of Group J, whoever loses here will be practically out of the Europa League.
This fact can and should have some importance when the first goal of the match appears.
Besides that, on Hertha’s last 9 matches, we have always had at least 2 goals, while Bilbao only had 3 out of their last 10 matches ending with less than 2 goals.
