Greuther Furth vs Hertha Berlin – Greuther Furth, the Bundesliga’s bottom team, will host Hertha Berlin at the Stadion am Laubenweg on Saturday afternoon, hoping to extend their unbeaten home record to five games.
Meanwhile, the visitors have not won any of their last five Premier League away games, and have failed to score on four occasions.
Greuther Furth’s five-match unbeaten streak came to an end last weekend as they were defeated 4-1 away at Wolfsburg.
After Branimir Hrgota’s 44th-minute penalty equalized Aster Vranckx’s seventh-minute opener, the visitors headed into halftime level; nevertheless, the hosts ran away with the victory after the break, sending Stefan Leitl’s side to their 15th league defeat of the season.
Following Augsburg’s 2-0 win over Union Berlin, Furth remain at the bottom of the Bundesliga table, although they are now 12 points adrift of safety.
