Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin Prediction: Bundesliga Match on 04.12.2020
There will be a massive Berlin derby for fans to look forward to in the Bundesliga this weekend, but will Union Berlin be able to continue their excellent start to the season on their travels?
The Bundesliga weekend will kick off with a huge Berlin derby this weekend, as Union Berlin will be hoping to claim a fourth win in five games. It has been another good start to the season for the visiting side, which is similar to the start that they achieved last season. However, they will be hoping to build momentum as the season progresses this term, which was something that they were unable to do last season. Union’s three-match winning run was brought to an end in their last game, as they were held by Eintracht Frankfurt. Union raced into a 2-0 lead in that match after goals from Robert Andrich and Max Kruse, but a brace from Andre Silva pulled Frankfurt level. Union needed a late equaliser in the second half from Kruse to rescue a point, but they would have been pleased with their attacking display as they look to inflict a defeat on their local rivals.
While Union have been flying so far this season, Hertha Berlin have really been struggling to pick up wins. The home side this weekend have won just twice this season, and have picked up just one victory in their last six games. Hertha have lost half of their previous six games, with their most recent loss coming against Borussia Dortmund in their most recent home game. However, they will be looking to build on an impressive defensive display that they produced in their last game against Bayer Leverkusen. They held the free-scoring Leverkusen to a 0-0 draw on that outing, but there will be more pressure on the hosts to attack in this game against Union Berlin.

Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin Prediction
Home advantage was key in the meetings last season, but form also played a part. Union were in poor form heading into their away game against Hertha, which they lost. However, it could be a different story this weekend, as Union claim a famous win on the road.
