• Against no other side in the Bundesliga have Hertha won more games than against Frankfurt (25). Eintracht are also the side that Berlin have scored the most Bundesliga goals against (92).
  • The game in the first half of the season ended with a 6-1 win for Hertha BSC – never before has a newly promoted side started a Bundesliga season with such a big victory.
  • With only 15 points after 17 games, Frankfurt have had their worst ever first half to a season in 10 years (12 points in 2003/04). They have 11 points fewer to their name than they did at this stage of the 2010/11 season when they were relegated.
  • Hertha have had 28 points or more after 17 games on nine previous occasions and in eight of those seasons, the club finished in the top five.
  • With only four points from eight games, Frankfurt had the worst home record in the first half of the season. Alongside Nürnberg, Frankfurt are the only team in German football not to have won at home in 2013/14.
  • Frankfurt have now gone nine Bundesliga home games without picking up a win – a club record and the longest current run of this kind of all Bundesliga sides. Their last home win came against Düsseldorf over eight months ago on May 4th 2013.
  • Hertha celebrated the end of the first half of the season with three consecutive wins – something they haven’t managed since February/March 2009. The last time they won four league games in a row was in November 2008.
  • Hertha have also won their last three away games – something they haven’t done in the Bundesliga since April/May 2007. Four Bundesliga away wins in a row last came at the end of 2004.
  • Hertha have picked up 12 points from losing positions – the best in the league. In the last two games, Hertha have managed to come from 1-0 down to win the game.
  • Adrian Ramos is the joint-top goalscorer in the league along with Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski (both 11 goals). Ramos has scored the all-important opening goal of the game for his club five times this season – a league-best.
  • Armin Veh, whose contract runs out in the summer, has not won any of his 11 Bundesliga games as a manager against Hertha (D3, L8).
