Hertha Berlin vs Ath Bilbao Prediction & Betting tips
A striking match on this day of Thursday is the one held by Hertha Berlin and Athletic Bilbao for the first date of the Europa League (group stage).
Hertha Berlin :
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, since both tables have the necessary hierarchy to alternate the chances of goal. For this reason, if we consider that the Germans are combative and competitive in the Olympic Berlin, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “plus 1.5 goals”. Remember that the Spaniards know to stop visiting with their dynamic style of midfield forward, which often allows them to score somewhat in this condition.
Take into account that Hertha Berlin equaled 1-1 against Werder Bremen as a local, getting to add 4 points in the general table. At the moment it is showing itself as a combative and competitive eleven despite not having a team that is rich in technique and elaboration. Their goal is to start this European competition well, trying to manage the times by having the local factor.
On the other hand do not forget that the German box already played two matches in the Olympic stadium of Berlin, managing first to win 2-0 to Stuttgart. Then came the parity mentioned before the Werder Bremen. You should take care of the dynamic style of your rival.
Continuing with the analysis you must know that Athletic Bilbao arrive toned to this duel after defeating 2-0 to Girona like local and to add its third party without losing in the Spanish championship. For these days, it has 7 units in total, product of 2 consecutive victories and 1 equality. Now the goal of the squad is to be able to ratify its competitive style in European territory.
To finish we tell you that the Basques have played some games as visitors in this start of the season, achieving more than positive results in the last. It comes from beating Panathinaikos 2-3 in Greece and 0-1 to Eibar a few weeks ago.
In front of this panorama I play for the bet “more 1.5 goals” due to the following reasons: First because the two teams are even despite having different football styles. However, they have variants to reach the goal, being feasible that they have what it takes to recover from a hypothetical initial disadvantage. Second because Hertha Berlin has added this forecast in its two first games played in the Olympic stadium (win 2-0 against Stuttgart and a 1-1 draw against Werder Bremen). And third because Athletic Bilbao is an intense squad that always goes ahead and does not speculate when it acts as a visitor. Faced with this reality and knowing that he has scored in his first 3 official outings in this campaign, we believe he can maintain this pattern. Expect a 1-1 or a 2-0 win for either side.
