Hertha BSC – VfL Wolfsburg

Just a few days after the start of the new year, the Bundesliga continues in quick succession. The 17th matchday will be played during the week and for VfL Wolfsburg, the away game at Hertha BSC is on the agenda. Kick-off is at the Berlin Olympiastadion on Tuesday evening at 20:30.

The omens for this match are clearly in favour of the visitors. Wolfsburg have lost only one of their last ten Bundesliga encounters with the Old Lady and have been unbeaten five times in a row at the Olympiastadion. The current form speaks even more clearly in favour of the VfL, who, after a poor start to the season, have been getting better and better and have recently recorded five wins in a row.

The Berliners, on the other hand, have lost four of their last five matches and, after the recent defeat in Bochum, have slipped into a relegation spot for the second time this season. But it is precisely this fact that should give all blue and white supporters hope. On Matchday 5, they were bottom of the table with a 2-0 win in Augsburg.

Hertha Form & Balance Check

After three defeats in a row before, the Berliners won their last game before the winter break against 1. FC Köln with 2-0. They were keen to build on this success last weekend in Bochum, but once again nothing came of it. After Lucas Tousart’s disallowed goal, VfL took a 2-0 lead before the break. In the 56th minute, striker Philipp Hofmann scored his second goal of the day to give VfL the lead. The Old Lady only managed to score a late 1:3 equaliser in the person of Suat Serdar (87th minute).

Weeks of truth

Compared to the previous season, the Berliners have improved their play, but all in all there are simply too few points. 14 points after 16 games are the worst yield since the relegation season 2009/10, when they had only six points at that time. A look at the programme for the next few weeks does not exactly inspire hope.

After the home game against the in-form VfL, the Old Lady will host city rivals Union Berlin before three more tough games await them in Frankfurt, Gladbach and Dortmund. The capital city team will have to be careful not to lose sight of their rivals Stuttgart (15 points), Augsburg (15 points) and Bochum (16 points) in the coming weeks.

Hertha facts & analysis

– 14 points from 16 games
– Last lost 1:3 in Bochum
– Weakest interim record since 2009/10 relegation season

Wolfsburg form & balance check

VfL Wolfsburg and Niko Kovac – this seems to be a success story after all. After the more than disappointing start to the season and only one win from the first seven games, Maximilian Arnold & Co. have apparently internalised the principles of their new head coach better and better, which has finally been reflected in the results for some time now. For nine Bundesliga games, the Wolves have not lost, the last five were won without exception. The goal difference of these five victories is 17:1.

High flight continues

The start to the new calendar year could hardly have been better for VfL. Patrick Wimmer got the game off to a dream start against SC Freiburg in the first minute of the game and Jonas Wind added two more goals before the end of the second half (28th, 37th). In the second period, the Breisgau side did not want to surrender without a fight, but conceded three more goals and in the end had to concede a clear 6-0 defeat. This was the first time since May 2014 that the Wolves had won five Bundesliga matches in a row. Back then, the series came to an end after six victories.

Wolfsburg facts & analysis

– 26 points from 16 games
– Last 6:0 win against Freiburg
– Last 5 games won

Predicted line-up – last update on 23 January 2023

For the Berliners, Dodi Lukebakio returns after serving his yellow suspension. Ivan Sunjic could replace the disappointing Jean-Paul Boetius. Captain Marvin Plattenhardt is another option at left back. Newcomer Florian Niederlechner, Chidera Ejuke and Kelian Nsona are missing due to injury.

The Wolves have no reason for personnel changes. Patrick Wimmer is slightly injured, but will probably still be able to play against Hertha. Alternatives would be Omar Marmoush, Kevin Paredes or Luca Waldschmidt
