Hertha Berlin vs Hoffenheim build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
After showing signs of recovering from their awful start to the season, Hertha have once again fallen by the wayside in recent weeks, currently enduring a run of just one win in their last six Bundesliga matches, although they have only lost twice during that run.
The only victory in that sequence for Bruno Labbadia’s men was a 3-0 win over struggling Schalke and they’ve been unable to back that up, losing to Arminia Bielefeld and drawing with FC Koln without scoring a single goal. The capital club are now looking nervously over their shoulders at the relegation battle.
But they won’t be looking as nervously as Hoffenheim, who are one place and one point below them in the Bundesliga table. Although there is a nine-point gap between Sebastian Hoeneß’ side and the automatic relegation spots, there are only four points keeping them from the relegation playoff place.
Hoffenheim have won just one of their last six Bundesliga games, losing five during that run, while they also crashed out of the DFB-Pokal at the hands of Greuther Furth recently. Whoever can summon enough to win this match will surely fancy themselves to pull quickly away from the relegation battle, while the losers will be left worrying about a long, hard slog between now and the end of the season.
- Hertha (vs FC Koln): Schwolow; Pekarik, Stark, Alderete, Mittelstadt; Tousart; Darida, Guendouzi; Lukebakio; Piatek, Cordoba.
- Hoffenheim (Arminia): Baumann; Kasim, Vogt, Posch; Rudy, Gacinovic, Samassekou, Kramaric, John; Bebou, Dabour.
Javairo Dilrosun will be out for a while with a knee injury and he is joined on the sidelines by Marvin Plattenhardt, Eduard Lowen and Dedryck Boyata. Matheus Cunha and Jessic Ngankam are doubts for Hertha.
But their absences pale in comparison to Hoffenheim, who will be without Kevin Akpoguma, Ermin Bicakcic, Dennis Geiger, Benjamin Hubner, Ryan Sessegnon and Konstantinos Stafylidis, while Florian Grillitsch, Pavel Kaderabek and Robert Skov are doubtful.

Players to watch:
- Hertha: While they are by no means the Bundesliga’s most prolific outfit, Labbadia must surely be confident of Hertha ending their recent dry spell — that will be because he has a striker like Krzysztof Piatek within his ranks. Okay, so the Poland international isn’t hitting the heights he did with Genoa a couple of years back, but he’s still a lethal finisher on his day and has netted four Bundesliga goals this season despite starting just eight games, doing so at a rate of 0.5 per 90 minutes. In fact, Piatek was the last Hertha player to find the net, rounding off their 3-0 win over Schalke at the start of January, so Labbadia will be looking to him to deliver the goods again on Tuesday.
- Hoffenheim: Hoeneß will be even more sure of his side finding the net in this one thanks to the remarkable output of Andrej Kramaric. The Croatia international has already scored 13 goals across all competitions this season, including eight in the Bundesliga — 36% of his sides’ total so far. Unfortunately for Hoffenheim, 10 of those 13 goals came during his first six appearances of the season, with the 29-year-old scoring just three times in his last 11 appearances. That said, Kramaric has five goals in eight career appearances against Hertha, while he’s yet to lose a single game against the Berlin club, so the omens are good.
