Dortmund comes from a 1:1 draw away to Hoffenheim last weekend. The game itself was completely divided, while the guests from Dortmund were a bit lucky to have a draw result after first hour of play. However, truth to be said, they were more superior in last twenty minutes and have failed to score after several good goalscoring chances created though counter attacks.
In theory, the team still has a chance to secure the sixth position that would lead them to Europa League, since they have only three points less than Augsburg on sixth place, but the side has already secured the European competition for the next season, as they have entered the Finale of DFB Cup by beating Bayern Munich away from home on penalty kicks – as they will be playing against Champions League team Wolfsburg, they have already secured the Europa League status for next season. For today’s game, the team will be missing offensive right midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski (13/0) who is a new injury loss, while the team also probably misses midfielder Marco Reus (18/7) and more long term absentees right midfielder Kevin Grosskreutz (17/0), central midfielder Sahin (7/1) and right back Oliver Kirch (6/0).
Hertha, on the other side, comes from a 2:1 defeat at home against Gladbach last weekend. It was their second consecutive loss after the team also have suffered 1:0 narrow defeat away from home against Bayern Munich prior that game and the side is now again close to a relegation battle being only four points away.
Kruse opened the scoreline in 11th minute, while the team was somehow lucky to get back in the game with a goal from Stocker two minutes later, while the visitors from Gladbach continued dominating the field and were more and more concrete as the game was progressing. Finally, they sealed the victory with a goal five minutes before the full time whistle via Traore from a long distance shot. Visitors will be missing right offensive midfielder Anis Ben-Hatira (15/4), with the team also missing goalkeeper Rune Jarstein (1/0), substitute midfielder Tolga Cigerci (2/0) and striker Julian Schieber (16/7). Injured is also midfielder Roy Beerens (26/3).
Even though the team has secured European ticket, they will surely try to recover some more sympathies from their fans and surely want a victory here. Hertha, on the other side, is surely in a downtrend and shouldn’t be able to cope with a bit more relaxed hosts who surely have far bigger quality in their roster.
