Union Berlin vs Hertha BSC
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 4 April 2021
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
The Iron Ones are one of the European prospects from the Bundesliga this season. They are placed seventh in the table at the moment, and they need a top-six finish at the worst to secure entry into the Europa Conference League.
As of now, they need a surplus of two points to climb to the sixth position, and they will derive confidence from the fact that the sixth-placed Leverkusen are going through some struggles at the moment.
Meanwhile, the Old Lady are one of the worst in the German top flight, and are placed 14th in the table with 24 points against their name from 26 fixtures.
As things stand, they have a lead of just a single point over the relegation cut-off, and the 15th placed Mainz are in admirable form at the moment.
Moreover, Pal Dardai’s men are conceding goals in huge numbers, and they are also on long winless streaks – be it at home or on the road.
By the looks of things, expect Union Berlin to emerge victorious this Sunday at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
Union Berlin vs Hertha: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse encounter had ended in a 3-1 win for the Old Lady.
- Six of the previous eight clashes had goals from both teams.
- 100% of meetings since 2011 have had three or more goals, barring just a single clash.

Union Berlin vs Hertha Prediction
Urs Fischer’s men lost 5-2 on the road the last match-day, against Frankfurt. In the meantime, Dardai’s men recorded a 3-0 win at home, against Leverkusen.
Going on, the Iron Ones were winless in nine of their past eleven overall fixtures, and they had conceded a total of seven goals from their past two games alone. Note that they have also won just five times at home this whole season.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 24 of their preceding 30 overall match-ups, and they had also lost seven of their former ten match-ups.
In addition, they have won just twice on the road this whole season, and the latest of such had come back in the first week of November.
Considering all these observations, expect Union Berlin to post the three points on the board this Sunday.
