On the last match day of a league, there are inevitable games in which it is for some teams for nothing at all. This is also the case on the 34th matchday in the Bundesliga. For Hertha BSC the season 2018/19 has already run. Whether the captains win or lose on Saturday does not really matter anymore.
However, the Hertha Kicker want to give their long-time coach Pal Dardai, who is well known after four years as a coach his last appearance in the Olympic Stadium, a worthy farewell. As a guest, Bayer Leverkusen will be a team for which a lot is at stake.
Today’s Betting Tips Hertha vs Leverkusen
Bayer 04 is in fifth place before the last game. If you score better in Berlin than the tied four from Mönchengladbach against the title candidate Dortmund, then pulls the Werkself still in the premier class, although Frankfurt, but must compete in Munich, also have a say. The team of Peter Bosz has no bad starting position. We would therefore prefer in the game between Hertha BSC and Leverkusen a tip on the guests. The question will be whether the Berlin once again put everything into this match. At the end of a club legend, as Pal Dardai she is, should be full throttle the motto. But we are sure that the motivation of the Berliners might not be at the upper limit anymore. At least the team of the Pal Dardai has come in better shape recently. Bayer 04 has done much better in the last few weeks. That too is a point, so in the game between Hertha and Leverkusen, the prediction should be more in the direction of the Werkself. Maybe there will be such a firework of Leverkusen again, as you could see it in the last few weeks of the often. Then the catch-up in the table could actually be rewarded with the entry into the Champions League.
Hertha – Statistics & Current Form
The last season game in the last two years was not a big strength of Berlin. The conditions are quite similar on Saturday, because for the Hertha is about nothing more, while Leverkusen should be hot in the hair. In the last two years, the Berlin were defeated in the season finale with 2: 6 against Leipzig and Leverkusen. We can already imagine that it will be similar on Saturday. However, the Berlin are unbeaten in the Bundesliga since four games. Most recently Pal Dardai has been able to lead his team to two wins in a row. Three threes in a row did not exist at all for Hertha during the whole season. We think that the mentality of the Berlin will not be enough to continue this series against Bayer 04. Therefore, we would prefer in the duel between the Hertha and Leverkusen the odds to an away win. Even a tip on many goals would be quite justified.
Many goals could be seen last weekend at the guest appearance in Augsburg. In the duel for the golden pineapple the Berlin won 4: 3. It was three times behind. Marvin Plattenhardt, Marko Grujic and Salomon Kalou were able to equalize three times before Kalou scored the winning goal in extra time.
“We were a bit embarrassed in the last game and scored a lot of goals. Now we have the team sworn, we want to do better. ” – Pal Dardai
On the defensive Hertha was a little too careless. This reminded of the last games of the previous years. Such a debacle does not want to see Pal Dardai in his farewell game again. Obviously, he clearly told his team that the fight must be accepted. Rune Jarstein, Vladimir Darida, Mathew Leckie and Arne Maier will not play on Saturday due to injury. It is also questionable whether Valentino Lazaro is fit for a flesh wound on the instep. Javairo Dilrosun would be a possible alternative. With Niklas Stark it looks after surviving injury afterwards, as if he could take at least one place in the squad.
Expected formation of Hertha:
↪ Kraft – Klünter, Lustenberger, Rekik, Plattenhardt – Skjelbred, Grujic – Lazaro, Duda, Kalou – Ibisevic
↪ Coach: Dardai
Last Games by Hertha:

Leverkusen – Statistics & Current Form
There are many rumors about who will leave Bayer Leverkusen at the end of the season. Nevertheless, the team is really in the last few weeks gas to retire in the premier class. There was a significant boom under Peter Bosz. The Werkself is the third best team in the second half of the season. Although it did not look like that for a long time, Bayer 04 could actually come into the Champions League. That would be more than a conciliatory end to the season. From the last five games the Werkself took a total of 13 points, putting them in first place in the form table. Against this background, it is no surprise that in the match between Hertha BSC and Leverkusen, a tip on winning the score is our first choice. The focus is mainly on Kai Havertz, who scored four goals in the last five games to 1-0 lead. If he also meets in Berlin, then he would be the first 19-year-old in Bundesliga history, which marks 17 goals in a season.
But last weekend there was a small setback in the fight for the premier class. Once again it was Kai Havertz who gave Bayer a 1-0 lead over Schalke. The miners came shortly after the break, however, to 1-1 final score.
“Now we have a very good chance in the last game and we want to put pressure on Mönchengladbach, just like we did in the past few weeks with all our competitors. We have to win our game and then see what happens in the end. ” – Simon Rolfes
Sporting director Simon Rolfes provides a clear route. Three points and the completion of your own homework are the goal, then it will be looked for, what this will be enough for. In general, it is expected that Peter Bosz again gives the team the confidence of last weekend. The use of Julian Baumgartliner is because of a toe injury but questionable. Dominik Kohr could replace him. Otherwise, Bayer Leverkusen will be without Berlin’s Leon Bailey, Karim Bellarabi and Joel Pohjanpalo. All other players have made themselves fit for the big season finale.
Expected formation of Leverkusen:
↪ Hradecky – Tah, S. Bender, Wendell – Baumgartlinger, Aranguiz – L. Bender, Havertz, Brandt, Volland – Alario
↪ Coach: Bosz
Last matches from Leverkusen:
⚽️ 11.05.2019 – Leverkusen Vs. Schalke 1: 1 (Bundesliga)

⚽️ 26.04.2019 – Augsburg vs Leverkusen 1: 4 (Bundesliga)
