Freiburg vs. Hertha Berlin Betting Preview With Pick – Bundesliga, June 16
Hertha’s mini revival has well and truly ended but Freiburg has put itself right back in the hunt for a Europa League spot.
With just three games left of the season there is plenty still to play for for a lot of the clubs in the Bundesliga.
Freiburg vs. Hertha Berlin Odds
I’ve no doubt that this will be a close game but I’m surprised that the online betting sites have gone with Hertha as the narrow favorites to take all three points.
The Berlin club has lost the last two now, while Freiburg has rallied. I would be more interested in the home win, or perhaps the draw, here.
Freiburg’s poor form either side of the Christmas break almost undid all the positive results at the start of the season that had suggested that Champions League qualification might even be on the cards. That hasn’t quite happened, but a few wins of late have put Freiburg right in the mix for a Europa League spot.
The fighting spirit shown to come back into the game with Wolfsburg at the weekend is a good sign if you are looking for a sleeper to make the top seven. After going two goals down early on some might have thought that the game was gone – but Freiburg drew level before the first half had even ended.
Now the Black Forest club welcomes Hertha Berlin to the Schwarzwald Stadion and will believe that three more points is very possible given the Old Lady’s troubles in the last two games. The narrow defeat in Dortmund was not too bad, but the 4-1 drubbing from Frankfurt at home could well knock the club off its stride.
With little chance of European qualification or relegation there will be a worry that Hertha’s players won’t be quite as up for this game with Freiburg as they should be. Bruno Labbadia has worked wonders with the dispirited group of players he inherited after the extended break but needs to keep the positivity going for another three games now.

Freiburg to Win+174
With Hertha given the favorites tag I think this is an excellent chance to back the home side and bring in some healthy returns.
Looking at Freiburg’s form and need for points, I feel that the players will have more desire than their opponents even if Hertha decide to give this one a go.
