Hertha Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview
Bayer Leverkusen must take care of their own business and hope for a favour from Borussia Dortmund on Saturday if they are to return to the Champions League next season.
Peter Bosz’s side are vying for fourth position in the Bundesliga table with Borussia Monchengladbach, while Eintracht Frankfurt also still have a chance and Wolfsburg the vaguest of mathematical possibilities.
Level on points with Gladbach but having a goal difference worse by two, Bayer do not face the easiest of final-day games away to mid-table Hertha Berlin – but they are much shorter odds to win than either of their two main direct rivals.
That is because Gladbach and Eintracht are involved in the two matches that will determine who captures the Bundesliga title. Gladbach host Borussia Dortmund, while Eintracht visit Bayern Munich for whom a draw would be enough to secure a seventh straight league crown.
As Dortmund simply must win, and Hertha have nothing to play for, the chances look stacked in Bayer Leverkusen’s favour to claim fourth position and a Champions League group-stage place, with RB Leipzig certain to finish third.
We think Bayer will get the job done – and a history of high-scoring contests between they and Hertha suggests that goals are likely to flow.
