• Hertha have not won in their last five competitive meetings (4 Bundesliga, 1 German Cup) with Gladbach (D2 L3) and have scored just two goals in those five games.
  • Hertha have lost just one of their last 22 home games (W16, D5 – includes the Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga). Stuttgart were the side to beat them, winning 1-0 in Berlin on matchday 5. It was Jos Luhukay’s first home defeat as Hertha manager.
  • Gladbach have not won any of their four away games so far this season (D1 L3); they have won all four of their home games though.
  • The last time Gladbach won two consecutive Bundesliga games within one campaign was in February 2012 (a 3-0 win against Schalke followed by a 2-1 victory in Kaiserslautern).
  • Borussia Mönchengladbach are the best team in the league in terms of tackling (54.5% of challenges won). Last season, Gladbach won just 50.2% of their tackles.
  • Thanks to their 2-0 home win against Dortmund on the last matchday, Gladbach sit in the top four for the first time this season.
  • Between 2010 and 2012, Ronny and Raffael played together at Hertha. They parted ways after Berlin were relegated. Now the two Brazilian brothers will face each other for the first time in their professional careers.
  • Jos Luhukay was relegated to the second division with Gladbach in 2007. He secured direct promotion the following season but was sacked after matchday 7 of the 2008/09 campaign (just one win left his side in 18th place).
  • Lucien Favre was the Hertha manager between 2007 and 2009 (75 Bundesliga games: W32 D14 L29) – he is undefeated against his former club (2 wins and 1 draw against Hertha, both with Gladbach).
