• The two newly promoted sides have met 28 times before in the Bundesliga. Hertha have won 10 of those meetings (D10 L8). The last Bundesliga encounter was in May 1983 in Berlin, as Braunschweig came back from two goals down to draw 3-3.
  • Braunschweig just have a better record in the 45 meetings since the Bundesliga was founded with 15 wins (D16 L14). They have only managed two wins in the last 10 though (D5 L3).
  • Eintracht are playing their worst Bundesliga season in the club’s history. They even had at least 11 points at this stage in each of their three relegation seasons (1972/73, 1979/80, 1984/85).
  • The fewest number of goals have been scored in Braunschweig’s Bundesliga games this season (34). Hertha’s games (37 goals) have provided the third-lowest amount of goals (Wolfsburg games have provided 36).
  • Braunschweig have the weakest attack in the league with eight goals scored. The Lions have failed to score in four of their last five Bundesliga games. Hertha have also failed to score in three of their last four league games.
  • Eintracht have lost five of their seven Bundesliga home games (W1 D1). They’ve scored four goals but have also not scored on four occasions.
  • They have lost two of their last six away games (W1 D3), but are 13th in the away table. They have conceded at least once in each of their away matches.
  • Six of the last nine goals that Hertha have conceded have come from set-pieces. Only Hoffenheim have conceded more set-piece goals than Berlin (10). In Braunschweig, they face the least-prolific league side from set-pieces (1 goal scored).
