Hertha Berlin have been climbing the table steadily over the past six match days, but their rise could come to a halt when they visit Dortmund who have recorded seven victories in their past eight games.

It is not unclear why their visit to Signal Iduna Park might be difficult, as Dortmund's wage bill of €205 million last season almost tripled Hertha's €62 million salary expenses.

If Dortmund fail to win they could concede their second place to RB Leipzig, while a win for Hertha would boost their chances of entering the Europa League next season.
