Union Berlin vs Hertha Berlin
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 2 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Berlin).
Hertha has been showing a trend of performing well against bottom-tier teams in the table and coupled with an easier schedule, the squad has put on a considerable number of points on the board in the recent match-days. They will likely try to keep the streak going, in spite of their away handicap for the day.
Meanwhile, opponents Union are struggling to keep up with the intense demands of the top tier, and this has seen them get placed just above the relegation zone as of now. They have so far scored the least number of goals in the competition, and the visitors will be keen to take advantage of this weakness.

Union Berlin vs Hertha Berlin Prediction
The Iron Ones delivered a good home win the other day against the top-tier Freiburg, with a 2-0 scorecard. The goals had come in the 1st minute of the fixture, and later in the 84th minute for the hosts. Meanwhile, Hertha had to dig deep to avoid a loss against Bremen their last match-day on the road. The team had trailed for a considerable time, before firing in the equalizer just 20 minutes from full time.
This weekend, as the two Berlin squads take on each other, the experience factor will probably come to the aid of the guests, since their counterparts just gained promotion to the top division the preceding summer.
Moreover, the teams on the road have had the upper hand in h2h clashes for a long time, and in fact, Union has not registered a single home win against this rival since 2009, and to be precise, the guests actually have a 100% win record if not for a draw in 2010.
As such, the visitors should avoid the loss at the least this Saturday. However, the home advantage, coupled with the scoring streak of Urs Fischer’s men in front of the home crowd, which included a 3-1 demolition of Dortmund, puts the chances for BTTS to look bright this game week.
