Venue: Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund.
Dortmund suffered their second win of the season on the matchday 6 by a 2-0 margin to Bayer Leverkusen. The start is not the ideal one their fans have expected this season. But under the current circumstances with at least six first team players still injured, Thomas Tuchel must be a satisfied man as they are just 4 points behind league leaders Bayern Munich. The test gets even tougher on matchday 7 as they welcome the second placed Hertha Berlin, who are playing some excellent football at the moment.
Hertha Berlin got back to winning ways against Hamburg after going on for two previous matches without a win. The defeat against Bayern Munich on matchday 4 was followed by a thrilling 3-3 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt. Goals from Ibisevic on either halves gave the Berliners a 2-0 win on matchday 7 against Hamburg, which fired them to second place in the table.

Hertha Berlin’s overall away record is inconsistent. The win against Ingolstadt on the opening week of the current season is their only win in the last 8 away matches in Bundesliga. The statistic analytic are backing the home side for a win, but too many injuries could dent their chances here. Also Hertha have made a brilliant start to the 2016 season.
