Hertha Berlin and Borussia Dortmund will square off against each other in the Bundesliga on Saturday evening (7.30pm kick-off).
The hosts returned to winning ways just before the international break with a 3-0 win at Augsburg after picking up just one point from 15 previously available.
Their visitors suffered a narrow 3-2 home loss against champions Bayern Munich, though Lucien Favre’s have performed reasonably well on the road having won eight of their last nine matches away from Dortmund.

Players to watch:
- Hertha Berlin: It’s been a challenging start for Hertha this season as they’ve only mustered two wins across their opening seven league matches. But finding the net hasn’t been an issue, as only the Bundesliga’s top five placed sides have outscored them so far. A key reason behind their good form in front of goal is Brazilian forward Matheus Cunha, who switched from RB Leipzig in January. The 21-year-old has four goals and two assists to his name and goes into this weekend’s game looking to score for a third consecutive game.
- Borussia Dortmund: No one-season wonder, Norwegian marksman Erling Haaland has picked up from where he left off from 20219/20. The 20-year-old striker heads into matchday nine having registered six goals across six Bundesliga outings, impressively averaging one goal every 79 minutes, while netting in each of his last five appearances in all competitions. Haaland, who joined from Red Bull Salzburg earlier this year, will face Hertha for the first time in the league, and they’ll be his 16th different opponent. To date only four sides (Hoffenheim, Mainz 05, Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen) have kept him from scoring.
Scoreline prediction: Hertha Berlin 1-3 Borussia Dortmund
