Prediction for Hertha BSC vs Athletic Bilbao tip
We are sure that the home team will try to protect their own net first. And on the other hand, Athletic Bilbao is not going to attack with full strength. However, we feel that we are going to see a couple of goals. That is why we would choose a moderate number of goals, between 2 and 3, as the first pick.
For the second suggestion, we would take second half to be the highest scoring one. Defensive and cautious approach to the game will result in one or none scores in the first 45 minutes. That is why we believe that the things will open in the second period.
