Relegation-threatened Hertha Berlin host Freiburg in the Bundesliga on Thursday as they aim to pick up a win and boost their survival chances.

This will be Hertha’s second game in a few days, after the club suffered a COVID-19 outbreak nearly three weeks ago.

Hertha could only secure a 1-1 draw against Mainz in the Bundesliga on Monday. They will hope to pick up all three points against Freiburg to move out of the bottom three.

Freiburg, on the other hand, don’t have much to play for as they can’t go down and are perhaps too far away from a Europa League spot.

Like Hertha, Christian Streich’s side were held in their previous game. It could be a pretty even contest when the two sides square off come Thursday.

Hertha Berlin vs Freiburg Head-to-head

Hertha last won a game in March, so a win would be a massive boost for the capital club. Games between these two sides tend to be close, as there have been more draws than wins for either team.

Hertha have won this fixture 10 times, while Freiburg have won eight. A total of 11 games have ended as draws between the two sides.

Freiburg are in a better run of form, though, and will fancy their chances of picking up a win to strengthen their position in mid-table.
