Hertha Berlin vs FC Union Berlin Preview

Hertha Berlin vs FC Union Berlin

Competition – German Bundesliga

Stadium – Olympiastadion

Date: 22nd May 2020

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

Bundesliga action continues this Friday evening in the capital city as Hertha Berlin take on Union Berlin at the Olympiastadion in front of zero fans due to the Coronavirus pandemic sweeping the World.

The Bundesliga officially returned last week and Hertha Berlin got off to the perfect start as they beat Hoffenheim 0:3 away from home.

FC Union Berlin had the unenviable task of hosting Bayern Munich and while they put up a good performance, they ultimately lost that game 0:2 to the defending champions.

This game sees 11th & 12th go head-to-head in an ultra-important game as a win for Hertha would push them to 10th position while a win for Union would move them above their local rivals.

Hertha Berlin have a tough fixture next week in the form of RB Leipzig away from home while Union will host Mainz who are hovering just above the relegation zone.

This derby has historically been close as these teams haven’t been separated by more than a single goal in their last five head-to-head meetings.

Union Berlin have got the better of Hertha in recent H2H’s as they have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5 meetings.

Bookmakers have priced Hertha Berlin up as slight favourites to come out on top in this game however the odds are close and Union Berlin are in with a shot of causing a mini-upset against their bitter rivals.

This game kicks-off at 19:30 BST.
