When a team is trading at even money to win a German Bundesliga game, we’re faced with a fairly straightforward conundrum. Do we think they have a greater or less than 50% chance of recording victory at this price.

If we think they are 51% likely or greater to overcome an opponent such as Hertha Berlin, then we might consider even money to be an attractive price, especially if the percentage is reckoned to be 60% or even higher. Alternatively, a lower percentage makes the opposition a more attractive prospect.

Let’s get something straight. Hoffenheim have won just five of their thirteen home matches this season, losing seven and drawing one. They are clearly a team who like to go for a victory at the expense of a defeat when it comes to home encounters.

Indeed, they will be up against a team who have avoided defeat in eight of their twelve away encounters in the German Bundesliga this season. While Hertha BSC have been caught up in some controversy concerning ex-Chelsea winger Salomon Kalou, they are a robust team in the division.

Kalou definitely won’t be playing any further part in the campaign after videoing insider scenes from the dressing room which saw the player contravene social distancing rules, although his team-mates look a sturdy bunch.

Hertha have been a difficult team to predict this season and they suffered a heavy 5-0 home defeat against Cologne on 22 February, while the defence looked porous in the ensuing games against Fortuna Dusseldorf and Werder Bremen which resulted in high-scoring draws.

However, coach Bruno Labbadia will have had time to address some of the defensive issues that were apparent in that game and we can be confident that the visitors can land at least a point on the road.

Indeed, their style of play seems better suited for away games. There was a 1-0 victory away to Bayer Leverkusen in the middle of December and there have also been three-point hauls recorded away to Wolfsburg and Paderborn.
