Hertha Berlin will look to exploit Borussia Mönchengladbach's ongoing struggles on the road in Matchday 10's opening fixture on Friday (kick-off 20:30CET/19:30GMT).
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.
