Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin Team News

Hertha Berlin made a huge statement on the last match-day against a wobbly Hoffenheim side, dragging their lackluster opponents to the cleaners. Already tipped by the bookmakers as underdogs heading into the game, Die Alte Dame defied all odds with a very comfortable victory over Die Kraichgauer.

Bruno Laddadia’s charges showed resilience, huffing and puffing throughout the game, in a bid to make an emphatic return to football following the COVID-19 break. Pressing high up the pitch for large parts of the game, Hertha Berlin fired three unanswered goals past the opposition goalie to send the travelling supporters to raptures.

However, the Old Lady will now be required to revisit their faltering home record, hoping to make some improvements to give their supporters something to cheer on home turf. Having triumphed only thrice on this ground, Hertha Berlin are easily one of the worst home sides within the cluster.

Since their surprise home win in December 14, they have managed a draw and three losses here, much to the disdain of the club supporters. Head coach Bruno Labbadia has come in for the stick on numerous occasions, for struggling to get his side on top-form when playing at the Olympiastadion.

Just eight points shy of breaking into the European places, the hosts are still in with a shout. However, they will be required to continue churning out positive results to remain within reach of continental football.

Union Berlin, on the other hand, are a single spot and point behind their derby rivals. Handed an impossible task of upsetting defending champions Bayern Munich last time out, Die Eisernen made the Bavarians work their asses off for the victoryThe club supporters will have no complaints about the 0-2 loss given the stature of the opposition in question.

However, with a game against a less intimidating side in Hertha Berlin on the horizon, Urs Fischer’s charges will be eyeing a return to victory to put a halt to their three-game winless streak. In dire need of points, they couldn’t have been offered a better fixture at this point in time.

Injured or Suspended Players

Hertha Berlin: Karim Rekik and Salomon Kalou.

Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin Predictions

Labbadia has been living the dream since taking over the reins at Hertha Berlin. The huge 3-0 victory away at Hoffenheim must have risen confidence levels within the club’s dressing room with the players itching to return to the pitch once again.

Despite their recent faltering records, the visiting contingent are no pushovers. Write them off at your own peril. The host’s terrible home record should be enough to propel Union Berlin to success here.

Taking these into consideration, the goal market seems the best bet. Expect both teams to score, with a total of more than three goals, come the sound of the final whistle.
