Borussia Dortmund v Hertha Berlin Predictions and Preview
BVB sit in second, and know five more victories will secure them the runners-up berth behind champions elect Bayern Munich. Despite having destiny in their own hands, Dortmund will also be aware that any slip ups could see them fall outside of the Champions League places altogether given how close the chasing pack are to jumping above Lucien Favre’s troops.
Bayer Leverkusen are fifth, just four points behind Dortmund and there would likely be a string of high-profile departures if the worst-case scenario unfolded for Die Schwarzgelben.
Favre was without Erling Haaland for the short trip across North Rhine-Westphalia and the Norwegian may miss out again with a knee injury.

Haaland was replaced through the middle by Thorgan Hazard and the versatile attacker, who opened the scoring on the day, is an attractive 7/1 to repeat his exploits for the second game running.
Elsewhere, Bruno Labbadia’s men are embarking on a late European charge of their own. Die Alte Dame have picked up three wins and three draws from the last six and won’t be intimidated by the opposition.
Krzysztof Piatek was a real coup for the German outfit after moving from Milan and after a period of acclimatisation, will rival the very best forwards in the division next term. Piatek is 3/1 to register anytime and Hertha are 7/1 to claim an impressive three points. A tie is available at 9/2.
One to watch for Borussia Dortmund: Julian Brandt has 13 goal contributions to his name and has adopted the mantle of chief playmaker in the absence of skipper Marco Reus. The 24-year-old is 9/4 to score anytime.
One to watch for Hertha Berlin: Matheus Cunha has shone since moving from RB Leipzig and is reportedly a target for Inter and Chelsea in the summer window. The Brazilian is 7/1 to bag last.
Long shot: Dortmund are still hurting from the performance they put in against Bayern which effectively ended their title hopes. In contrast, Hertha are producing their best sequence of results all year and it is all set up for an exciting 90 minutes. A 2-2 outcome is 16/1.
