- Hertha have won all four outings at the Olympiastadion this season.
- Hosts in fifth, one point adrift of Köln in fourth.
- Gladbach have won the last five meetings between the two clubs.
A one-goal defeat to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on Sunday saw Hertha slip down into fifth place, but starting next weekend’s action gives Pal Dardai’s side a chance to atone quickly and lay down a marker to their rivals around them in the upper reaches of the table. That narrow loss was just their second in the league this season, but wins in all four outings at the Olympiastadion this term will give plenty of hope that the Old Lady can bounce back on Friday.
Gladbach, for their part, brought an end to a three-match losing streak in last Friday's goalless draw with Eintracht Frankfurt. The result has done little for their top-four aspirations, though, with Andre Schubert's side already six points adrift of the UEFA Champions League places. A rare away win would do their European aspirations the world of good. They have, however, won only one of their last 15 Bundesliga matches away from the comforts of the BORUSSIA-PARK.
- Hertha Berlin still boast a 100 per cent home record.
- Hertha’s Sinan Kurt was born and raised in Mönchengladbach and came through the ranks there.
- Borussia Mönchengladbach are without a win or goal in their last four Bundesliga games.
- Gladbach have won the last five meetings between the sides.
- Borussia won last season’s fixtures with Hertha 4-1 and 5-0.
