  • Hertha boasts just one clean sheet from six matches (home and away) against teams that currently reside in the top-half.

  • Union Berlin have an average goal difference of +0.33 at home, compared to Hertha’s of -2.00 on the road.

Union on the slide

Back in October, Union hit something of a purple patch, winning three on the bounce, which propelled them to a healthy and rather lofty standing, though things have since gone awry. Saturday’s hosts remain tough to beat, and their only recent loss came at the hands of Germany’s dominant force (Bayern), but they’re without a win in three.

On home soil, Urs Fischer’s men have had plenty to smile about. Prior to losing to Bayern, which there’s zero shame in, they’d won two on the bounce at Stadion An der Alten Försterei, where they’ve only lost once this season, collecting a very respectable total of 11 points from six matches.

Hertha blighted by inconsistency

As things stand, Hertha, despite being the more experienced top-level club, are the lesser of Berlin’s two main footballing forces. The blue and white team from the German capital currently sits five places below Union, being four points worse off.

It’s been an up and down season so far for Die Alte Dame, who did appear to turn the corner slightly when winning two on the bounce last month, but just one point from two since means that they’ve been unable to sustain what was a short-lived climb up the table. In general, the visitors have struggled away from home, losing four out of six, conceding a disappointing total of 18, which makes them the second-worst team in the league from a defensive point of view.

Union Berlin vs Hertha Berlin Predictions

Form sometimes goes out the window when two city rivals lock horns, though it’s hard to ignore some reasonably glaring facts ahead of this one. At the prices, a bet on the hosts to emerge victorious and to score twice in the process appeals.

Hertha have found it tough against those that have positioned themselves inside the top half this season, losing two out of two on the road, and four out of six overall, conceding a poor total of 16 goals, shipping two or more in four out of six. In contrast, Die Eisernen have been quietly solid at home, winning three out of four prior to their defeat against Bayern, and they still notched twice on that occasion.
