The second half of the Bundesliga campaign continues, with Wolfsburg hosting Hertha Berlin at the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday.

Wolfsburg's abysmal run continued last weekend as they lost 1-0 to newly-promoted Bochum. They conceded the goal just after the hour mark and though they kept up the pressure for the rest of the game, they did not create any noteworthy chances to level the scores.

Die Wolfe sit 14th in the Bundesliga standings with just 20 points from 18 games. They will now be looking to end their poor run of form when they play at the weekend.

Like their hosts, Hertha Berlin also lost their game at the weekend. They were beaten 3-1 on home turf by an in-form Koln, marking their second defeat in their last three games in the Bundesliga.

Hertha Berlin sit a place and a point above their weekend hosts in the league table. They are just three points above the relegation playoff spot and will be looking to widen that gap with a win on Saturday.

The hosts are in abysmal form ahead of their game at the weekend. They have now lost eight games across all competitions and are winless in their last nine.

Hertha Berlin have lost two of their last three games and have conceded nine goals in that period. However, they will take confidence from picking up all three points against a struggling Wolfsburg team and should be able to.
