Hertha Berlin and Union Berlin face at Olympiastadion Berlin, in a match for the 27 th round of the Bundesliga. Union Berlin won at home by (1‑0) the last time they met in this edition of the league, on 02‑11‑2019. Special attention is needed for the home / away condition, as both teams show significantly different results in their home and away matches.
The home team is currently in 13th place, with 28 points won, after 7 wins, 7 draws and 11 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied for Fortuna Düsseldorf by (3‑3). In the last match, they tied at home against Werder Bremen by (2‑2). This is a team that, curiously, has been stronger away than at home, since in the last 30 games they have registered 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses as a visitor; against 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 home matches for the championship, Hertha Berlin has recorded 1 victory, 3 draws and 6 losses, having won 6 points out of 30 possible. The team has conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition, for which reason it hasn't been very strong defensively. In 25 games in this competition, he only managed 2 turns on the scoreboard in the 16 games in which he suffered the first goal. In the last 13 home matches for this competition, there are 1 periods that stand out: they scored 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (31' ‑ 45 ').
If there's one thing that Hertha Berlin doesn't accept, it's missing a classic. As he will play at home, the obligation for victory becomes even greater. If we take into account that they lost the duel of the first round, the hosts come to this meeting with the feeling of revenge. Anything can happen in this match, but we should see the local team imposing itself in search of three points. In this match, Karim Rekik will be left out for being in the medical department.
1. Union Berlin
The visiting team is currently in 11th place, with 30 points won,
after 9 wins, 3 draws and 13 losses. In the penultimate match, they drew
at home to Wolfsburg by (2‑2). In the last match, they lost away to
Freiburg by (3‑1). This is a team affected by the home factor, which is
stronger when they play with the support of their fans, since in the
last 30 games they have registered 5 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses as a
visitor, with a total of 18 goals scored and 28 conceded. At home, he
won 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, with a total of 25 goals scored and 16
conceded. In the league, Union Berlin won 10 points out of 30 possible
points, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses in the last 10 home matches.
The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 games, for
which reason it has not presented great defensive solidity, but their
attack has scored regularly, since they managed to score in 8 of the
last 10 games in this competition. In 25 games in this competition, he
suffered the first goal 12 times and never managed to turn the score.
If there is one thing that Union Berlin cannot do, it is to complain about your campaign, after all it is as expected. Of course, he will not be accommodated, especially since he wants to have better numbers. Now, they will have a classic ahead of them, and a defeat is something they don't want. As he won the first meeting between them, he knows he can surprise again. Therefore, we should see visitors focused on getting at least a draw. In this match, Laurenz Dehl, Maurice Opfermann Arcones, Sheraldo Becker and Akaki Gogia will be left out for being in the medical department.
