• Hertha won 3-0 in their second-division encounter at home against Braunschweig last season. However, that is the only one of their last 10 home games against Eintracht that Berlin have won (D7, L2).
  • Nevertheless, Braunschweig’s last win at Hertha was over 25 years ago (2-0 in October 1998 in the second division). In fact, Eintracht’s last away win over Berlin in the Bundesliga was in April 1965 (3-0), over 49 years ago.
  • Hertha are now mathematically safe, as they are 11 points clear of 16th place with just three games to go.
  • Braunschweig have been bottom of the table since matchday 13, but are just two points behind 16th place, which would be enough for the relegation play-offs.
  • Berlin haven’t won in nine games (D4, L4) – the longest winless streak in the league by far. Their last victory was a 2-1 win in Stuttgart on February 22nd, over two months ago. The last time Berlin went on a run like this was in 2011/12 (12 straight games without a win).
  • Eintracht have won just one away game in the Bundesliga this season – a 2-0 victory in Wolfsburg in October 2013, over half a year ago. Since then, they have recorded four draws and seven defeats in 11 away games, the longest winless streak away from home in the league.
  • Berlin are without a home win in 2014 (D2, L4). They managed five in the fist half of the season (along with 1 draw and 3 defeats).
  • Hertha’s Adrian Ramos (16 goals), who has been missing for the last two games, has been involved in 17 of Berlin’s last 24 goals (13 goals, 4 assists).
  • Peter Niemeyer is set to make his 50th Bundesliga appearance for Hertha. In total, he has played 81 top-flight games (5 goals), 32 of which for Werder Bremen.
  • Berlin’s sporting director Michael Preetz and Braunschweig’s sporting director Marc Arnold were teammates at Hertha between 1996 and 1999.
  • Braunschweig have only converted a third of their clear-cut chances, the worst record in the league – Berlin are second-worst in this department (35%). Eintracht are also last in terms of their chance-conversion rate in general (9.9%).
