Hertha Berlin are looking to pick themselves up from last weekend's humiliating loss to RB Leipzig when Freiburg come to the Olympiastadion on Sunday for a clash in the Bundesliga.

Die Alte Dame were on the receiving end of a 6-0 shellacking by Die Rotten Bullen in their last game, just a month after a resounding 5-0 demolition by Bayern Munich. It was their fourth loss in six games and with only six points in the bag, they are languishing in 12th place in the league table.

Freiburg, meanwhile, are in high spirits after outclassing Augsburg 3-0 in their last game, scoring thrice in the first-half through Lukas Kubler, Lucas Holer and Vincenzo Grifo to earn a huge win. Surprisingly, they've yet to lose this season, winning and drawing thrice each from six games.

Defending champions Bayern Munich are the only other team with an unbeaten record in the league right now.

Hertha Berlin vs Feiburg Head-To-Head

Hertha Berlin vs Freiburg Prediction

As good a side as Berlin are, their defense was ruthlessly exposed by a rampant Leipzig side. The visitors will be looking to pounce on their vulnerabilities and have some good attacking options to accomplish that too.

Berlin will fight tooth and nail but we're putting our money on Freiburg to prevail narrowly.

Prediction: Hertha Berlin 1-2 Freiburg
