On Tuesday night, Schalke will receive Hertha Berlin’s visit in the DFB Pokal (German Cup) eight-round. The two teams met in the last stage in the Bundesliga, and then neither of them managed to take all 3 points. Both teams were very cautious on the defensive stage, and this led to a draw with a score of 0-0. This time, however, it is expected that we will have more shows. See below for analysis and recommended prognosis.
Schalke faced Hertha Berlin in the last leg of the Bundesliga, and then drew 0-0.
Both teams seemed satisfied with that point, as it kept Schalke close to the first 4 teams in the standings, and Hertha above the relegation zone.
This game should be quite different from the previous meeting. Schalke will definitely force more to win on his own ground and to advance to the quarterfinals of the German Cup.
Schalke is one of the best teams on his own field this season, suffering only one defeat at home.
The team is undefeated in the last 6 consecutive matches played on their own ground.
Hertha struggles at the bottom of the Bundesliga standings, but her form lately has been pretty solid.
Only Bayern have managed to defeat it in the last 6 games.
Hertha will fight to avoid relegation, which is the main goal this season. In my opinion, the participation in the cup will not be placed in the foreground, although they have evolved very recently.
In each of the last 5 matches in the German Cup, Hertha scored 2 or more goals. However, her journey to the optimum was not as quiet as expected.
In the first game it was passed by the fans from VfB Eichstaett by 5-1, but in the next phase of the competition it eliminated with great difficulty Dynamo Dresden, in the away matches.
