Facts and stats ahead of #BMGBSC
Everything you need to know ahead of the Foals’ Bundesliga home game against Hertha BSC on Saturday afternoon (15:30 CET).
- As part of the current pandemic measures introduced by the federal and state governments, professional sporting events must take place without spectators. For this reason, the home game against Hertha BSC will have to be played behind closed doors at BORUSSIA-PARK.
- Borussia will no longer be playing the stadium anthem, ‘Die Seele Brennt’ until further notice. This is due to ongoing legal proceedings with the song’s artist. Until this matter is settled, the song will therefore no longer be played as part of the build-up to matches at BORUSSIA-PARK.
Head-to-head record between Borussia and Hertha BSC
- The Foals and Hertha BSC will meet for the 65th time in the Bundesliga on Saturday, with the record slightly in favour of Borussia, who have won 25 of the 64 games played so far. Hertha have come away victors in 24 games, while there have been 15 draws.
- VfL have won six of the past seven home games against Hertha.
- While Vladimir Darida scored once for Freiburg and Eduard Löwen once for Augsburg against the Foals, no player in the visitors’ squad has scored against Borussia wearing a Hertha shirt.
- The previous meeting with Hertha BSC on matchday 34 of last season saw the Foals seal fourth place and Champions League football for the third time with a 2-1 win.
Statistics - in partnership with UNIBET:
