When Dardai took over Hertha in 2015 the team looked like a right mess. The club was in the 17th position and it looked like they won’t be able to avoid relegation. The Hungarian head coach turned things around, and since then, Hertha’s been a stable mid-table team in Germany. As they’re financially one of the weakest clubs in the league, they did manage to qualify for the Europa League in 2017. Right now, their eyes on repeating the miracle and qualify for Europe.

It’s hard to score in Berlin
Hertha have won all of their 3 home matches so far this season – including one against Bayern Munich. Dardai must be happy with the performances of Duda Ondrej and Vedad Obosevic, as the two players have reached 9 goals together so far this season. Besides the fine attacking statistics, Dardai is also well known for organizing his defence very well. Hertha have conceded 7 goals so far, which is the second lowest number in Bundesliga.
Fairly good start of the season for Freiburg
Meanwhile, Freiburg had an okay start of the season, collecting 8 points in 7 matches. They’ve lost 2 of their 3 away matches – they managed to win against Wolfsburg. Last year, Freiburg were almost relegated, this year they’ll probably aim higher and try to finish around mid table. They’re a fairly tough opponent, but we believe that Hertha should confidently win on Sunday.
Hertha should be confident
Online sportsbook sites in Germany also predict a win for Dardai’s team. The odds on their victory are 1.88 at Unibet Sportsbook, which seems to be quite high considering their latest results. Furthermore, despite the two teams have played 0-0 and 1-1 last season, the odds are as high as 3.40 on a draw, and 4.40 on Freiburg. However, if we try to place a realistic bet on Hertha v Freiburg, we’ll surely bet on the home team winning.
