Reason For Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin Predictions

  • Union Berlin have lost three of their previous five matches.
  • Both teams have scored in five of Union Berlin’s previous six matches.
  • Hertha Berlin’s last three home matches have featured a total 13 goals.

Berlin set for memorable derby

A stunning goal from Matheus Cunha rounded off an emphatic 3-0 win over Hoffenheim for Hertha Berlin upon their Bundesliga return and our predictions suggest they can make it back-to-back successes with victory in the Berlin derby.

Sebastian Polter’s penalty in the 87th minute handed Union Berlin an historic victory in the Bundesliga’s maiden Berlin derby earlier in the season but that was at their Stadion An der Alten Forsterei home, where six of their nine league wins have come this season.

Away from home, meanwhile, they have struggled, collecting only 11 points from their 13 matches and their victories on the road have come against porous Mainz, Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt outfits.

They have, in fact, lost four of their previous six away encounters, conceding a total 13 goals in losses at Fortuna Dusseldorf, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and, most recently, Freiburg.

Union Berlin defying expectations

As an outfit promoted from Bundesliga 2 last term, relegation was expected this season but they are instead nestled in the mid-table positions and have exceeded expectations. But given their poor away record, they are worth opposing against Hertha Berlin.

Hertha’s win last weekend means they have now gone three matches unbeaten in the league and they will be hoping that the arrival of new manager Bruno Labbadia will help arrest their slide at home, where they have not won since December.

Rejuvenated Hertha set for success

They certainly looked better defensively in their first game under their new boss, allowing Hoffenheim 18 shots but only five of them on target and keeping a clean sheet in the process.

But goals have been common at the Olympiastadion this season – Hertha’s home matches have featured an average of 3.23 goals this term – and with Union having a premier marksman in their ranks, it would be no surprise to see them net a consolation goal in this match.

Swedish star Sebastian Andersson has been the standout Union player this season with 11 league goals and he can spearhead a side who have netted at least two goals in five of their previous eight assignments.

With goals therefore expected, coupled with the fact Hertha have won five of their ten matches this season by a single-goal margin, the best bet for our correct score prediction looks to be a 2-1 win for the home side. 

The reverse fixture, which finished 1-0, was a tight contest and punters should anticipate the same again but this time a rejuvenated Hertha should come out on top.
