City rivals Hertha Berlin and Union Berlin will have the honours to open the 10th round in German Bundesliga on Friday night. Visitors are currently looking much better in terms of form, results and overall standings.
Hertha are going through rough period after winning only one out of the last eight divisional games. They are much closer to the relegation zone than to Europa League race, which was one of the initial goals for this season.
Bookmakers are still giving better chances to hosts though, pricing them at 2.20 to secure first victory at this venue in this campaign. Union Berlin’s stats on the road are two victories and two draws.

Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin Prediction
The only two teams which Hertha Berlin managed to beat are Werder Bremen and Augsbrug, both on the road. They gathered only five points from the last five encounters though, slipping to 13th position and getting very close to the red zone.
Coach Bruno Labbadia was appointed as Hertha’s coach in April this year, and he has never been under such pressure like today. The only player which provides some form of consistency is Matheus Cunha. Brazilian striker bagged six goals in nine appearances so far.
As for their opponents, Union Berlin have been on fire lately, beating Hoffenheim, Arminia Bielefeld and Koln consecutively. That run was interrupted last weekend with a 3-3 home draw against Frankfurt.
Once again, we are expecting an open match and a lot of goals. BTTS is banker bet in our opinion, and there is big value in backing the draw.
