Hertha Berlin welcome midtable outfit Vfl Bochum at the Olympiastadion to kickoff matchday 21 of this 2021/22 Bundesliga season.

The two teams are in mid-table but have both struggled to put up points on the board in recent weeks which portends for trouble with the potential of getting sucked into a relegation fight looming in the vicinity.

We expect a closely fought encounter here and we will take a look at Yangasport and Betboro Ghana for our Bundesliga betting tips here.

HERTHA BERLIN

Hertha have had a really rough start to the year. They are yet to register a win in any of their 4 matches since the turn of the year (3L, 1D). Two of these losses were heavy losses, the most recent of which was the 4-1 thrashing by league leaders and cross-town rivals Bayern Munich in their last league outing.

This poor run has also seen them getting knocked out of the DFB-Pokal by city rivals Union Berlin, who edged them out 3-2 at the round-of-16 stage.

New manager Tayfun Korkut is under pressure to turn things around. Hertha have been relatively good at home and he will be hoping to rally his charges here against an opponent they have had success in recent encounters, winning four of their last six meetings.

BOCHUM

Like the hosts, Bochum are also going through a rough patch. They have won just one of their last six league matches (1W, 3L, 2D). However, considering this is their return to the Bundesliga, you can argue their return of 24 points from their opening 20 games and their 11th place position on the log is exceeding expectations by all metrics.

They also won their DFL Pokal matchup, easily beating Mainz 3-1 in the round of 16, which was a nice payback after losing to them in the league literally a couple of days prior.

Having said that, Bochum are just five points away from the relegation playoff spot and cannot afford to sleep on the job here lest they get sucked into this abyss that could derail their season.

HERTHA BERLIN VS BOCHUM PREDICTIONS

This is a tough game to call. Both of these teams are going through a dip in form and they will both be keen to turn the tide here. Hertha are in a more dire state given the circumstances and we expect them to come out the hungrier of the two sides here.  We fancy them to have the momentum to start the game here and we are backing them to break the ice with the opening goal of this game @ 1.85 with Yangasport Bonus as the first of our betting predictions today.

Bochum have really struggled on their travels. They have lost in 4 of their last 5 away games in the league. With Hertha expected to put them on the back footing right from the gates, we fancy them to get into the referee’s book early in the game as they deal try to deal with the hosts. Betboro have them priced at 1.94 to pick up at least 1 booking in the 1st half and we are backing this as our final call.
