Freiburg vs Hertha by Gustav
Freiburg lost 2-1 away to Augsburg in last weekend. The first half was boring with mistakes from both sides, especially from the side of Freiburg the problems were many. They went ahead with the start of the second half and showed that they will keep the result to their side but after the goal they came under pressure, have been equalized and generally failed to manage the game and keep the ball away.
Last Thursday Freiburg drew 2-2 at home against Liberec for the groups of Europa League. They had very good pace and offensive mentality but also made many unforced errors in every line. They arrived quickly and beautiful to Liberec defense box but always did't managed to create goals. After the 2-0 they seemed to be in control of the game but they accepted two funny goals and have been threatened with a third goal although Liberec was left with ten players.
Freiburg generally playing quick football with lot of passes, combinations, but with lot of risks. As in the previous season, many times they are wrong and give the ball to the opponents and they destroy their own offensive actions for funny reasons. Anyway, they have many young players who are not used to the pressure of Bundesliga, however, the improvement will come soon for them.
Sub defender Pavel Krmas and left winger Vaclav Pilar are in doubt to play, while midfielder Vladimir Darida, right back Mensur Mujdza, right back Vegar Eggen Hedenstad, striker Marco Terrazzino are all sidelined, and midfielder Karim Guede is suspended.
Hertha Berlin lost at home 0-1 against Stuttgart in their last game. Although they had lot of aggression throughout the game, they failed to score among some of the opportunities they created. A draw would have been fairer result and this was the second consecutive defeat in Bundesliga for Hertha. Hertha did not scored against Wolfsburg too, although they had so many opportunities to both games. With only one goal in their last three games, it is obviously that they need to be more effective, something that i think will be solved soon.
Freiburg still has weaknesses in each line but they risk a lot to their game, while Hertha have to find back their scoring behavior. I think that both teams will score today.
