It’s the Berlin Derby on Friday in the Bundesliga, where Hertha Berlin will play host to Union Berlin. The two teams had opposite results in the restart of the Bundesliga, with Hertha Berlin picking up where they left off, while Union Berlin saw their struggles continue.
Hertha Berlin ( 8-11-7) are coming into this match after a really balanced performance against Hoffenheim on the road. They were lucky enough to see their opponents score an own goal at the 58th minute and doubled that just two minutes later. They went on to score a third goal to seal the win at the 74th minute for the final 3-0. Hertha Berlin are now sitting at the 11th spot of the league table with 31 points, eight ahead of the relegation zone. However, they have struggled a bit at home (3-7-3), going win-less in their last five.
Union Berlin (9-14-3) are coming off a hard-fought home match against Bayern Munich, but they eventually lost by 2-0. They conceded a goal in each half, but it was not a very pretty match anyway. Union Berlin have now won just one of their last six matches in all competitions (1-1-4). They are sitting at the 12th spot of the league table, just one point behind their upcoming opponents. They haven’t been so strong in away matches so far, wining just three of the 13 (3-8-2). However, they have scored in 12 of their last 14 away matches in all competitions.
Union Berlin won by 0-1 at home earlier in the season and have the upper hand in this match-up over the years (2-1-2). That was the only match without goals from both sides in this tie. Union Berlin scored twice in both previous matches in this venue and could be a problem on Friday. I am taking the Over here.
