Union Berlin vs Hertha Berlin
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 6 August 2022
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
Union Berlin were one of the very best teams in the German top right the last season and they even had secured a 5th place finish at the end of the campaign. Meanwhile counterparts Hertha were lucky to have avoided relegation.
They had finished 16th in a table of 18 and they literally had to go through relegation playoffs in order to extend their stay in the top flight. Do also note that only the dead-last placed team had a worse goal difference than them in the whole competition.
It seems that they have carried their poor form into this new season as well. They are on a long losing streak at the moment, and are letting in goals in huge numbers. Particularly on the road they have been in a mess all through the previous campaign as well.
Meanwhile, Union Berlin had finished 5th in the table and as a result they will represent Germany in the upcoming edition of the Europa League. Moreover, they had missed out on a top-4 finish as well as a ticket to the Champions league for just one point.
They will be determined to deliver a far better performance this time around. They are also at home and will be considering the upcoming encounter as an opportunity to start their new campaign on a positive note.
Taking into account these observations, expect a victory for Union Berlin this weekend.
