The big game in the Bundesliga this weekend will see the two Berlin sides clash in the derby. Both sides will be desperate for the points as they find themselves at contrasting ends of the German top-flight standings at this pivotal period of the campaign.
Hertha Berlin will come into this derby looking for more than bragging rights this weekend. They will be desperate for the points as they find themselves in a dire position in the Bundesliga standings with eight games of the season remaining.
Hertha currently occupy for the final relegation place in the league, and are sitting a point from safety. However, they will be relying on favours from elsewhere to help their chances of avoiding relegation, as they also find themselves below Arminia, who currently sit in the relegation playoff spot.
They were beaten for the fourth time in five Bundesliga fixtures in their last game, while they have won just once during that time. Their latest defeat came against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday. They fell 2-0 behind after 40 minutes, before Vladimir Darida pulled one back before the break.
Union are still very much in the hunt for a European place this season, as they sit seventh in the Bundesliga standings. They will be looking for back-to-back wins this weekend, as they currently sit three points behind Hoffenheim, who currently sit in the final Europa League spot.
They picked up a very hard fought win in their last fixture, as the narrowly edged to a 1-0 success at home against FC Köln. The winning goal in the fixture was scored early in the second half, as Taiwo Awoniyi maintained his excellent goalscoring season in the Bundesliga this term.
Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin Head to Head
Union have already recorded two victories against their local rivals this season. The most recent of those victories came in the DFB Pokal in January, as they won 3-2. Union are also unbeaten in the previous three fixtures between the sides, with Hertha’s last win coming in their home fixture against Union in December 2020.
Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin Prediction
Hertha desperately need a big win this weekend to keep their hopes of survival alive. However, wins have been hard for them to pick up recently, and we could see them enduring a difficult day at the office on Saturday, as Union takes the bragging rights and the points.
