Both teams have gotten off to a woeful start and find themselves in the bottom three of the Bundesliga table.
Despite their poor start, Hertha Berlin will head into the fixture with a bit of momentum after picking up their first win of the season against Bochum.
Playing away from home, Hertha put in a dogged display at the back and took their chances to win 3-1 against Bochum in their last outing.
Greuther Furth, on the other hand, suffered another defeat at home as Wolfsburg’s quality saw them pick up a 2-0 win.
Head coach Stefan Leitl knows his side cannot go too many games without a win as their heads could drop even further. The clash against fellow strugglers Hertha Berlin is therefore massive for the side.
