Hertha Berlin start their 2018-19 adventure with a match against Nuremberg at the Olympiastadion Berlin this weekend. Hertha Berlin were only able to finish in the mid-table places last season, but it was still a great effort after a disastrous start to the 2017-18 campaign. Nuremberg are back in the top flight after a four-year absence. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hertha Berlin were able to flex their muscles in the pre-season and first round of the DFB Pokal. After a mid-table finish last season, Hertha Berlin will be hoping for a better 2018-19 season.
Nuremberg had an indifferent pre-season with the team losing against the likes of Bologna but they also went on to beat Real Valladolid. Michael Köllner has largely relied on free transfers, but the loan signing of Yuya Kubo enhances the quality of the squad.
The recent game between the two clubs was back in 2015. Hertha Berlin emerged with a 2-0 victory away at Nuremberg. Hertha Berlin’s last home game against Nuremberg was back in 2014 when the visitors managed a 3-1 win. Our betting tips and predictions for this game expect a win for Hertha Berlin.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Hertha Berlin win at 2.10[/bet_tip_now]
Nuremberg are at a price of 3.60 to win this match. However, the newly promoted team may not have great chance of winning the game. Last season, Hertha Berlin had one of the poor records at home after managing just five victories from 17 matches. However, pre-season has been good for Pal Dardai’s men. The loss of Mitchell Weiser has allowed the club to invest into the likes of Valentino Lazaro. If Hertha Berlin make a good start – unlike last season, they stand a chance to finish in Europe. Our preview would back a win for Hertha Berlin.

Hertha Berlin vs Nuremberg draw odds: 3.40
Nuremberg win odds: 3.60
Correct Score odds
A strong reason for Hertha Berlin finishing in the mid-table position last season was a return of just 43 goals from the 34 league matches. Most of this mediocre record has to do with a poor start to the season, as the likes of Davie Selke and Salomon Kalou returned with a total of 26 goals last season. Nuremberg could struggle when it comes to scoring goals – even if they have been decent in pre-season friendlies. Our correct score prediction expects a Hertha Berlin 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This is a fixture that could have more than 2.5 goals in total, as both teams are expected to find the back of the net. This is likely to drive up the entertainment factor, according to a total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Hanno Behrens and Mikael Ishak came up with a remarkable 28 goals last season. The 1.Bundesliga will be a significant step up in almost every walk of life. Kalou was a key player for Hertha Berlin last season and he ended up with 12 goals. Our first goalscorer prediction is back Kalou.
