Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin
Date: 28 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
Hertha host Union in the Berlin derby on Saturday afternoon at Olympiastadion. The teams will enter the game in completely opposite spirits.
If there is any moment to proclaim one team the favorite over their city counterparts, it is probably this one.
Union Berlin obviously possess more quality in their ranks and they will enter this game on a high after clinching back-to-back wins over Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen in the previous two rounds.
These wins helped Urs Fischer’s men move up to the second position in the Bundesliga table. They are now only three points below leaders Bayern Munich who drew in both of their January fixtures.
When you have such an in-form side taking on bitter city rivals who have conceded eight goals in their back-to-back losses to the likes of Bochum and Wolfsburg, you get to make a very simple betting prediction.
Hertha look awful at both ends of the pitch. They are leaky at the back and eight goals allowed in the matches against Bochum and Wolfsburg best describe this segment of their game.
However, the team led by Sandro Schwarz are also toothless at the opposite end. They did not create anything up front on Tuesday evening in the 0-5 catastrophe against Wolfsburg at this same venue.

- We have seen goals at both ends in five of the previous six head to head outings between the Berlin rivals.
