Hertha Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen at Olympic Stadium (Berlin)

bundesliga live bettingAt present Bundesliga round Robin Dutt's men travel to the German capital off the back of their Champions League triumph over Chelsea in midweek.

Despite throwing away a two-goal lead against struggling Freiburg last weekend, Markus Babbel should stick with the same lineup for Leverkusen's visit. And despite being substituted before the hour mark, Pierre Michel Lasogga should be fit to spearhead the Berliner attack.

Gonzalo Castro's switch to right-back prompted the Bundesliga side's comeback against Chelsea, so he may well be preferred to Daniel Schwaab in Leverkusen's backline. Meanwhile, having scored the equaliser on Wednesday, Eren Derdiyok could regain his place in the starting lineup at Stefan Kiessling's expense.

With Cacau's form rapidly falling, there could be a place in Joachim Low's Germany squad opening up. The 19-year-old has scored four goals already in his debut Bundesliga season, and with his impressive record at youth international level could announce himself to the national team with a match-winning performance against his former employers.

The veteran rolled back the clock against Chelsea with a performance that only lacked a goal. Majestic in possession and threatening in the opposition area, Ballack is hitting good form in his preferred playmaking role and could be devestating against Hertha.

Bayer Leverkusen will be on a high after their fantastic win over Chelsea in midweek, and should avoid a result influenced by a 'continental hangover' against a decidedly weaker Hertha Berlin side. Hertha have conceded six goals in their last three games and I'd expect Leverkusen to sneak a victory in the Olympicstadion.
