Union Berlin will be making the short trip to Olympiastadion this weekend, as it takes on fellow Berliners Hertha in the ongoing Bundesliga season.
After playing 9 consecutive seasons in the top flight, Hertha is in real danger of being relegated to the second division. After losing 6 of its last 7 games, the capital club finds itself in the 17th spot on the points table, 1 point away from safety. If it does manage to win this game, Hertha will find itself climbing up to the 15th spot and get some breathing space.
Talking about its latest effort, Hertha faced Leverkusen, and despite a spirited effort by the players, ended up losing the game 2-1. Nevertheless, coach Felix Magath will be looking to place that loss behind him, and give his best this weekend.
For a club playing for the 3rd time ever in the top flight, Union Berlin has played remarkably well so far. After enduring two losses and a draw, it managed to get back to winning ways in the last outing, beating FC Cologne 1-0 in a closely fought game. Despite the opposition holding on to the possession for close to 75% of the time, Union’s defenses held up pretty well, allowing for just 1 shot on target.
The club is currently in the 7th spot on the points table, with 41 points. With 7 games yet to go, a European spot is pretty much on the table for Union, as 6th placed Hoffenheim is just 3 points ahead, while 5th placed Freiburg is 4 points ahead.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Hertha BSC vs Union Berlin Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Olympiastadion, Berlin, on 9th April 2022.
Despite having home advantage, most football betting sites are predicting a difficult task for Hertha this weekend. Union managed to win the reverse fixture earlier this season, and Hertha will be taking on the field to avenge that loss.
Playing just the second home game under new coach Magath, the hosts are likely to miss out on quite a few players, including Marvin Plattenhardt, Dedryck Boyata, Marco Richter, Kelian Nona, and Rune Jarstein, and Alexander Schwolow. On the other hand, the visitors are likely to travel without Anthony Ujah, Andreas Luthe, and Levin Oztunali. Paul Jaeckel is suspended for this game.
Given the current form of both the teams, this capital derby is a difficult one to call. It is always better to chase the odds in such a situation and the best return for our money is currently being offered by betting on the draw. That is exactly what we are going to do!
Bet on a draw.
Hertha has kept just 1 clean sheet in the last 10 games across competitions against Union, while it scores at an average of 3.5 goals in each home game against them. The stats suggest that both teams should be able to get on the board once more. The current form of both teams also seems to point in the same direction.
6 of the last 7 home games for Hertha have seen an aggregate of 3 or more goals being scored at full time. Also, 3 of the last 5 head to head games between both teams have seen 3 or more goals getting scored. It is therefore likely to be the case in this game too.
