25/02/2023 5:30 pm
With their Bundesliga status on the line, Hertha Berlin will aim to bounce back from their 4-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund when they host Augsburg on Saturday afternoon. The visitors moved seven points clear of Hertha with a 1-0 victory over Hoffenheim last weekend.
In the Bundesliga, Hertha Berlin remains second from bottom in the table following last weekend’s thrashing at the hands of Borussia Dortmund.
The capital club has taken just 17 points from 21 games this season, having won four games, drawn five, and lost 12.
They have lost five of their last six matches and nine of their previous 12, with a solitary victory coming since the turn of the year.
While many Bundesliga clubs have sacked their manager this season, Hertha has been stuck by Sandro Schwarz, but it feels like he is walking on thin ice.
Augsburg ended 2022 on an eight-game winless run, but the Bavarian outfit has enjoyed a marked upturn in form since the resumption of the Bundesliga.
They have picked up three wins in six matches to steer clear of the drop zone, thanks to 1-0 victories over Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen, and Hoffenheim.
The side finds themselves five points above the dreaded relegation playoff spot and seven points clear of the bottom two.
