Berlin's Olympiastadion is the venue today for Hertha Berlin's match against Hannover 96 (7:30pm UK time).
Hertha Berlin's Proving Grounds
Hertha Berlin really needs three points today: The team has had a lackluster beginning to the season, losing five matches out of the ten they've had this season, winning only two and drawing three. Berlin is currently positioned 14 at 11 points in the table with a lacking goal difference of -4.
One thing that's working for Hertha is the fact that they've lost only once in their home ground and are currently on a run of three consecutive victories at Berlin. They will have to recover from Sunday's 3-1 loss to newcomers SC Paderborn 07. Hertha needs a win and a lot of goals and will depend on the likes of striker Salomon Calou who was good lately who will be aided by Ronny, Scheiber and attacking midfielder Ben-Hatira who should be returning from an injury.
Hannover 96 Looking for a Win
Hannover 96 is positioned sixth in the Bundesliga table with 16 points to their name (5w, 1d, 4l). The team had more problems in away games than in home ones but they've managed to get out of a rut of three consecutive defeats and get into the Bundesliga's top six with victories over Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt.
Hannover's goal difference is -4 and they've only scored 7 times in 11 games, opposed to Hertha's 15. Yet, the team is currently better than Hertha all things considered and they but they are up against a motivated Hertha Berlin at home.
