Hoffenheim host Hertha Berlin at PreZero Arena when the Bundesliga resumes on Saturday. Hoffenheim will hope to end a winless run of five straight Bundesliga games in this weekend’s clash with Hertha Berlin. However, Saturday’s hosts may struggle to overcome their recent form. Hertha Berlin will be playing their first match under new boss Bruno Labbadia and should prove hard to beat.
The break came at a good time for Hoffenheim who had failed to win in their last six matches in all competitions. They were knocked out of the German Cup after a 4-3 defeat at Bayern Munich and lost their next two Bundesliga matches.
Hoffenheim bounced back with a 1-1 draw at Borussia Monchengladbach, but suffered a humbling 6-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich where they were 3-0 down after 15 minutes.
Hertha Berlin have had a drama filled season on and off the pitch. New manager Ante Covic didn’t last long, Jürgen Klinsmann stormed out of the club in February and interim manager Alexander Nouri made way for Bruno Labbadia in early April.
Bruno Labbadia is the new manager at Hertha Berlin after doing a good job at Wolfsburg.
Hoffenheim have a 9-5 advantage against Hertha Berlin with five draws in 19 meetings. Hoffenheim won this fixture 2-0 last season, won 3-2 in Berlin in October with the three previous matches all draws. Hoffenheim have failed to win in their last 6 matches (all competitions).

Hoffenheim are 2.00 favourites with Hertha Berlin priced at 3.50. Hertha Berlin have drawn three of their last five Bundesliga matches against Hoffenheim which is the best bet at 3.60.
Hoffenheim and Hertha Berlin have been very inconsistent this season. Hertha Berlin made a sharp appointment in hiring Bruno Labbadia however and he should bring some stability to the club.
