Hertha Berlin hosts Athletic Bilbao at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, on a Europa League group stage match.
We are upon one of the big matches of this Europa League’s matchday, that pits together two teams that are able to fight for the title on this competition.
Hertha has had a campaign with a lot of up and downs in the Bundesliga.
The team dropped off on their performance levels exactly on the decisive moment of the season and ended up failing to be in the fight for a Champions’ League spot.
In the end, the team was able to snatch this Europa League qualification spot, finishing in 6th place.
In the current season, the team has only played 3 matches so far, having won 1, drawn 1 and lost another, having a goal record of 3 goals scored and 2 goals conceded.
Hertha Berlin vs Athletic Bilbao – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Different from Hertha Berlin, Bilbao was already forced to play in two qualifying rounds of this Europa league this season. That’s because last season the team finished in 7th place of La Liga.
On the Europa League, the team has already faced Dinamo Bucharest and Panathinaikos so far, but they are still unbeaten, having 3 wins and 1 draw.
In reality, Bilbao is still unbeaten in every official competition on this new season. Both in La Liga and in the Europa League, the team wasn’t beaten yet.
On a match between the two best teams in the group, I expect a lot of balance. But if there is an aspect where Hertha has really shown their strength last season in the Bundesliga was when they played at home.
The points they conquered at home were essential for qualifying for this Europa League. Therefore, I think Hertha has some value here, and the AH 0 offers some additional but necessary safety.
