Koln vs Hertha BSC Preview:

Bottom placed Hertha Berlin travel to the RheinEnergieStadion on Friday night as they face Koln in an important game for the relegation battle for the visitors. Koln have been on a rich vein of form with three victories and 2 draws in their last six league matches, not having conceded more than once in any of these games. Despite being on an abysmal run until early April, Steffen Baumgart’s side see themselves sitting on 11th in the table after their recent results. Although the hosts face the 18th placed side in the league, it will most certainly be anything but a cakewalk for the Billy Goats in their pursuit of a second successive top half finish in two campaigns. The defensive form of Baumgart’s side has helped the team get good results recently and they will have to be on top form against Hertha’s top scorer Lukebakio.

On the other hand, this would be a must win game for Hertha, who staring down their first relegation in a decade. No words can describe the importance of the win last weekend against Stuttgart, as they closed the gap to three points of Bochum and Stuttgart in the bottom three. The win also brought an end to a four-game losing streak – and with a trip to Bochum next weekend, any positive result against Koln would help Pal Dardai’s side take a significant step towards safety. Hertha will be hoping to replicate the performance of the reverse fixture, seeing the visitors this time around emerge victorious over Koln.
