What do RB Leipzig and Hertha BSC have in common before the competitive season that starts on Friday? On the one hand, both clubs had to cope with important departures in the summer, on the other hand, those responsible still have a few euros in hand to strengthen the squad. In addition, in round one of the DFB Cup, the ambitious clubs caught the supposedly heaviest tickets of all Bundesliga clubs.
The “Red Bulls” have to go to Nuremberg; Berlin visits a second division promoted. Before the match between Braunschweig and Hertha, the odds suggest that a complicated task awaits the capital club.
One of the reasons may be that the best bookmakers are more cautious with their assessment before the start of the new round. However, the latest impressions between Braunschweig and Hertha also flow into the final prediction. The Labbadia recently suffered three test game defeats in a row and remained without a single goal.
Since it is difficult for us to give a tip on the outcome of the game before the first-round duel between Braunschweig and Hertha BSC, we focus on the goal market. Here it is to be expected that the underdog will rely on a compact defense and leave possession of the ball to the favorite. Because on the part of the Berliners the game in the last third got stuck in preparation, the bet on the Under 2.5 seems obvious.
Braunschweig – Statistics & current form
At the Eintracht from Braunschweig, the anticipation before the start of the season on Friday evening is huge. Not only do the Lions want to survive the first round of the DFB Pokal for the first time since 2015, the upcoming start of the second division season against Heidenheim a week later also creates a certain euphoria in Lower Saxony.
Thanks to third place, which was even enough for direct promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga due to the promotion ban for FC Bayern Munich II, the yellow-blue are back in the league from which they surprisingly relegated in 2017/2018. With all the optimism and excitement, however, it should not be forgotten that the BTSV also made a few adjustments in the summer despite its success.
Few goals in the last friendly matches
First and foremost, the unexpected change of coach should be mentioned. Promotion coach Marco Antwerp could / did not want to continue and was replaced by the former trainer from Erzgebirge Aue, Daniel Mayer. Mayer, described in insider circles as a not very easy character, convinced, among other things, his ex-protected Wydra to switch to the Lions. Promising transfers were also made with Felix Kroos, the third former Unioner, and Fabio Kaufmann from Würzburg.
There are still no real clues as to where the former first division team is currently. The fact is that the most recent test matches were not characterized by a lot of spectacle. In the past three weeks, Eintracht lost to Hansa Rostock and de Grafschaap (both 0: 1) and landed close successes against Heracles (2: 0) or Dynamo Dresden (1: 0). Bets on a maximum of two goals in the course of the game would have always paid off, which is why we tend to predict the Under 2.5 on Friday between Braunschweig and Hertha.
Probable formation of Braunschweig:
➲ Engelhardt – Nikolaou, Wydra, Schultz – Kijewski, Ben Balla, Kroos, Kessel – Kobylanski – Kaufmann, Bär

Hertha – Statistics & current form
Hertha would like to be a “Big City Club” in the future. Comparisons with other capital city clubs such as Paris St. Germain, Real Madrid or AS Roma seem to be about as far-fetched as the conspiracy theories of some mask opponents. Nevertheless, one hopes for a positive development of the “old lady” in Berlin, who was at least at the top of the league-wide rankings in terms of negative headlines in 2019/2020.
After the Klinsmann intermezzo and the Kalou scandal, the commitment of Bruno Labbadia brought calm to the team, which from then on presented itself very well, got rid of all relegation worries surprisingly quickly and even dreamed of returning to Europe for a short time. Even if in the end only tenth came out, you went into the summer break with a very positive feeling.
The old lady overestimates herself?
There is not much left of this feeling. The bank account, which has been advertised in the media and filled by investor Lars Windhorst, is currently causing the blue-whites greater problems on the transfer market. With the “old lady” at the negotiating table, prices shot up quickly, so that, among other things, the targeted changes from national player Koch or Schalke player McKennie burst.
Only the transfer of Tousart from Lyon, which has been fixed for a long time, and the commitment of keeper Schwolow can be described as coups.
“There are easier lots” – Bruno Labbadia
In return, however, important players left the club with Ibisevic, Skjelbred, Grujic and Wolf. A real axis in the center is currently missing, especially since Labbadia will have to do without striker Piatek, the central defenders Torunarigha and Boyata and Ascacibar on Friday evening.
Hertha for three friendly matches without a goal
A further complicating factor is that self-confidence is in the basement. Three bankruptcies in the last three test games against Ajax, Eindhoven and HSV, in which the Berliners didn’t score a single goal, are definitely an occasion to question the odds on the away win between Braunschweig and Hertha after regular time.
Probable formation of Hertha:
➲ Schwolow – Mittelstädt, Rekik, Stark, Klünter – Tousart, Maier, Darida, Dilrosun, Lukebakio – Cunha

Braunschweig vs Hertha Direct comparison
For the fifth time, the two clubs face each other in the DFB Cup. The paths crossed for the last time in the first round in 2018/2019. At that time, the Berliners struggled to a narrow 2-1 success and actually managed to eliminate the lions from the German club cup in the fourth attempt for the first time. The most recent two direct duels in the upper house were 2014/2015 – both times the capital club kept the upper hand 2-0.

Braunschweig vs Hertha Soccer Betting Tips
One of the most interesting, because the most balanced first-round duels of this year’s DFB Cup will take place on Friday evening in the Eintracht Stadium. Braunschweig welcomes Hertha. According to the betting odds, the starting position is by no means as clear as it should be in a match between an ambitious first division team and a second division promoted team.
The reasons for this are obvious. The “old lady”, for example, has to do without important players and has not been able to strengthen herself as planned this summer. In particular, the departures of Ibisevic, Skjelbred and Grujic have to deal with the rejuvenated team of Bruno Labbadia first. In the test games, things didn’t go well at all recently. The last three matches were all lost with a goal difference of 0: 7.
Key facts – Braunschweig vs Hertha tips
⚡️ In no test match of the Eintracht more than two goals were scored
⚡️ Hertha were last in preparation three times in a row without a hit
⚡️ In 2018, the Berliners prevailed in a direct duel in round one just 2: 1
Due to the fact that the Lions also had an unspectacular preparation behind them and a maximum of two hits were scored in all test matches of the team of the new coach Daniel Mayer, it seems most plausible in our eyes to again tip the Under 2 between Braunschweig and Hertha To submit 5.
We expect a more defensive BTSV team who want to make life difficult for the Bundesliga club. The blue-whites are currently missing a real enforcer, so not very many goals are to be expected.
