Borussia Dortmund have lived under the shadows of Bayern Munich over the past few years, but this year looks quite promising as their young team seem to be thriving in every area of the field. They named former Nice boss, Lucien Favre as their new head coach and he has started as brightly as Peter Bosz started last season, their fans would hope that it lasts longer this time.
BVB have not lost a competitive game this season. They have won six of their 8 league games so far with the other two ending in draws. Paco Alcacer has barely played 2 hours of football for Borussia Dortmund since he joined them on loan, yet he has netted 7 times. Dortmund have scored 19 goals in their last four league games, and Hertha Berlin would have their hands full when they take to the field for this game.
Despite their form, Dortmund would be worried about Berlin. The Berliners became the first team to beat Bayern Munich a few weeks ago, however, the two games they have played after that win have ended in stalemates against less illustrious opponents. But the visitors are in no bad form as they have already amassed 15 points from 8 league games this season, which represents their best start to a league campaign.
Hertha Berlin drew 1-1 at home to Borussia Dortmund when the two sides last met in January. Dortmund have lost just one of their last nine competitive matches against Hertha (W4 D4 L1).
