Betting tips & odds comparison 19.05.2022 Hertha BSC - Hamburger SV
Betting Tip for matchday 1 of the 2021/2022 Relegation Bundesliga between Hertha BSC and Hamburger SV. The game will be played at Olympiastadion (Berlin, Germany) on 19.05.2022 at 20:30.
Hertha Berlin welcome Hamburger SV to the Olympiastadion Berlin for the first leg of this Bundesliga relegation fixture. Hertha finished this season in 16th place in the Bundesliga and are fighting to remain there while Hamburger SV were third in Bundesliga 2 to earn a chance for promotion to the top flight via this playoff fixture. 22bet and Helabet are some of the leading betting sites in Africa that offer high odds for this match.
Hertha Berlin find themselves in a relegation playoff for the first time since 2011/2012 season when they secured promotion to the Bundesliga. After finishing 16th in the Bundesliga this season, Hertha will find consolation in the fact that the team finishing 16th has lost the relegation playoff to a team from the second tier league only once in the last nine seasons.
Hertha are also hoping their homeground advantage will count in this first leg encounter. They have won all their previous five home matches against Hamburger and would welcome a continuation of the same. Nevertheless, Hertha need to change their recent form, which brought only 1 point in their last 3 games and saw them drop to the relegation zone on the last day.
An impressive run of form in the later stages of the season propelled Hamburger SV to finish 3rd in Bundesliga 2 and secure this promotion playoff. This includes winning all their last 5 games and scoring 16 goals in the process to clinch 3rd place on goal difference. If they can maintain this run then they will be on their way to the to flight.
Striker Robert Glatzel’s scintilating form has contributed significantly to this good run. He managed 22 goals for the season including a goal in the 3-2 win over Hansa Rostock in the last game to help Hamburger secure a playoff berth.
