After losing their last two games in the Bundesliga, Hertha will be looking to go into the holidays break with a home win when they host the ever so struggling Darmstadt at the Olympiastadion in Berlin in the 16th round of the Bundesliga.
The hosts have managed to stay unbeaten in three straight games before losing their last two in the Bundesliga. Hertha collected a total of 7 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Leipzig away from home where they were defeated 2-0.
Hertha are sitting in 6th place in the league table with 27 points from 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 22 goals and conceded 16 since the start of the season.
Per Skjelbred and Vladimir Darida are expected to return to the starting XI in central midfield. On the flanks, Alexander Esswein and Valentin Stocker could get chances from the start as well, with Genki Haraguchi and Salomon Kalou possibly remaining on the bench.
The visitors have been struggling since the start of the season. Darmstadt have stayed at the bottom of the table for the most part of the campaign due to their weak defences and not clinical attacking force. The team failed to add any points to their tally in the last 5 Bundesliga rounds, losing all of them. Their last game was against Bayern Munich at home where they lost 1-0.
Darmstadt are sitting at the bottom of the Bundesliga table with 8 points from 2 wins, 2 draws and 11 losses. They have scored 11 goals and conceded 28 since the start of the season.
Florian Jungwirth is fully fit again and could replace Artem Fedetskiy at right-back. Sven Schipplock and Antonio Colak compete for the spot up front. Otherwise, interim manager Ramon Bernd Roth has no reason to make any changes.
