• Hertha have won three of their six meetings with Hoffenheim (D1, L2), with their record in away games against them even (W1, D1, L1). In September 2009, Hoffenheim recorded their biggest ever Bundesliga win in their match against Hertha (5-1).
  • Hertha won the last encounter between these two sides (3-1), which was enough for them to sneak a relegation play-off place on the last day of the 2011/12 season. Their joy was short-lived though, as they were beaten in the play-offs by Düsseldorf and were relegated.
  • Hoffenheim have won just one of their six home games this season (D3, L2) and have conceded the most goals at home in the league (13, an average of 2.2 per game).
  • Hertha BSC are one of three Bundesliga sides (including Nürnberg and Hannover) yet to win away this season (D3, L2). The last time Berlin picked up three points on the road in the Bundesliga was in March 2012 (3-1 win in Mainz).
  • Including last season, Hoffenheim have scored in each of their last 15 Bundesliga games, meaning Gisdol’s side have now matched their club record (April-November 2010).
  • However, TSG have also conceded in each of their last 17 Bundesliga matches (40 goals in total, an average of 2.4 per game) – the longest run of conceding in Hoffenheim’s Bundesliga history. Only Nürnberg (19 games) have been waiting longer for a clean sheet.
  • There have been 51 goals in Hoffenheim’s 11 games this season – a league-high.
  • Roberto Firmino (7), Anthony Modeste (6) and Kevin Volland (5) have scored 18 goals between them, making them the second-most prolific attacking trio in the league behind Dortmund’s Lewandowski (9), Aubameyang (7) and Reus (6).
