Who will be Berlin city master?
Even in the summer of 2019, all Berlin soccer fans agreed that the two capital city derbies would be the big highlights of the Bundesliga season for them. A little less than a year later, everything is different. When the two first division teams from Berlin face each other on Friday evening as part of the 27th matchday, the expected derby atmosphere will hardly be felt.
The Olympic Stadium remains empty. Only the substitutes, various officials and journalists, armed with a mask, will take a seat in the stands behind the benches. To Hertha vs. Union Berlin odds of the best bookmakers, which imply a favorite role in favor of the home side, do not change the unusual conditions, however.
This assessment can also be traced back to the impressions of the past weekend, when the “old lady” celebrated a sovereign 3-0 win in Hoffenheim in the first game under the direction of Bruno Labbadia, while the Iron Men at home against FC Bayern as expected 0: 2 were the losers.
Through these differently successful re-starts after the compulsory break, the blue and whites passed the city rivals in the classification and also have the chance on Friday to take revenge for the first leg. In early November, the ambitious Chaos Club from Wilmersdorf at the Alte Försterei lost 0: 1. If the revenge is successful, Hertha vs. Union Berlin home win prediction offers attractive odds of 2.37 at the top.
Hertha – Statistics & current form
If you google for Hollywood, you will be automatically forwarded to Bayern. This season, however, a club in the capital has set itself the goal of challenging the record champions of this sometimes harmful reputation. Of course, we’re talking about Hertha BSC. For a few weeks now, the former founding member of the Bundesliga has been stuck in every sneak peek that gets in their way on the way to the targeted national top.
First it was the short interlude with Jürgen Klinsmann including his Facebook withdrawal. The association, which has an extremely potent investor in Lars Windhorst, then wrote with the installation of Jens Lehmann on the board and with the scandalous live video by Salomon Kalou from inside the BSC site for primarily negative headlines.
Successful debut for Labbadia at the restart
As if that weren’t enough, the blue-whites had to listen to some criticism again last Saturday.
“It remains a derby, it will be extremely explosive. We all remember our poor appearance in the first leg at the Alte Försterei, it was a pitch-black day. ” – Michael Preetz
It was triggered by Dedryck Boyata’s very deep goal celebration, who kissed his teammate Marko Grujic on the cheek despite the hygiene rules and thus caused a lot of discussion again. At least sportily, the restart was almost optimal after the interruption.
At the debut of new coach Bruno Labbadia, the Berliners abducted all three points from Sinsheim thanks to a significant increase in performance in half time and should therefore have got rid of all relegation concerns ahead of schedule. Although the lead over the relegation place is still only eight points, it was still obvious that the “old lady” with an experienced coach on the sidelines will probably look up rather than down in the coming weeks.
Does Hertha benefit from the ghost game setting?
The new impulses from Bruno Labbadia as well as the fueled self-confidence from the victory at TSG Hoffenheim in connection with the undisputed quality in the squad of the eleventh table justifies Hertha vs. Union Berlin tip on the host.
The fact that there will be no fans in the Olympic Stadium is even more likely to play into the cards of the capital club, because the blue and whites have so far gained more points away from home (19) than at home (twelve). Due to injury, Labbadia, who demands a top performance from his team, has to do without… ..

Union Berlin – Statistics & current form
Thanks to an absolutely satisfactory and, above all, surprisingly constant premiere season in the upper house, the topic of relegation battle was hardly present for long distances at 1. FC Union Berlin. However, this could possibly change in the coming weeks as the lead on the relegation place is only seven points.
In spite of all justified concerns about slipping into the table cellar, it should be noted, however, that the Iron people make such a stable and confident impression that the relegation could in reverse be fixed in the near future. An away win in the derby at Hertha, equivalent to the city championship won in 2019/2020, would provide additional relief.
Only the FCA conceded more goals in the second half of the season
The undertaking is by no means easy, however, as the Köpenickers in the second half of the season were not always able to maintain the level shown in the first half series. It is no coincidence, for example, that goalie Rafal Gikiewicz, who is retiring at the end of the season, has had to reach 19 times in nine matches. Only FC Augsburg conceded more goals after the winter break.
At the re-start last weekend in the home game against FC Bayern there was little to get for the red and whites.
“For me, first and foremost it is the maintenance of the league, not the city championship. If both would happen, so much the better. ” – Urs Fischer
The record champion acted dominantly and, despite a decent defensive performance by the Berlin team, ultimately had few problems to concede the 2-0 away win. Above all, there needs to be an offensive if the twelfth of the classification wants to celebrate the third three away from their recent four appearances on Friday evening in the Olympic Stadium.
Urs Fischer returns to the team
One of the hopes is that the trainer will be available again. Urs Fischer was missing at the start for private reasons, but is now back with the team after two negative tests. In our eyes, however, this does not change the fact that between Hertha and Union Berlin the forecast for the “old lady” seems more promising than another coup by the supposed outsider.
Compared to the previous week, the Swiss coach will probably make one or two changes. Christian Gentner and top scorer Sebastian Andersson are options for the starting eleven. Due to injuries, Fischer still has to do without Becker, Gogia and Dehl. Central defender Schlotterbeck saw his fifth yellow card against Bayern and therefore has to watch blocked.

Hertha vs Union Berlin Direct comparison
For the first time, the two clubs faced each other in the first leg in the Bundesliga in early November. In the fifth compulsory duel, this should not be the only novelty, because for the first time the home team was able to prevail in the derby. In the previous four matches in the second division, there were two guest victories (once Hertha and Union) and two points.
Sebastian Polter, who in the 87th minute scored a penalty to Christian Gentner, became the match winner at the Alte Försterei. Ante Covic was still on the coaching bench with the blue and whites, but was replaced by Jürgen Klinsmann three games or three defeats later. The rest of the story should be known …

Hertha vs Union Berlin Free Betting Tips Provided by CoreBet Tipsters
The capital derby is coming! Hertha welcomes Union Berlin. If we believe the betting odds, then an intense duel awaits us, which in all likelihood will only be decided by nuances. If we had seen the Iron Iron slightly ahead before the forced break, the tide has now turned in our eyes.
This is particularly due to the personnel of Bruno Labbadia, who was able to celebrate his team’s 3-0 away win at TSG Hoffenheim on his debut as a BSC coach. We are convinced that the experienced football coach will make better use of the undoubted potential of the “old lady” than his predecessors Covic or Klinsmann.
Key facts – Hertha vs Union Berlin tips
Labbadia made a successful Hertha debut – 3-0 against Hoffenheim
Union have conceded 19 goals in nine games in the second half of the season
The first leg ended 1-0 for the Iron
In addition, it should be mentioned that the blue and white after the lost first leg at the Alte Försterei (0: 1) strive for revenge. Because, in the course of the second half of the season, Köpenicker also no longer seemed as stable as in the back series and the self-confidence of the hosts has returned, it makes sense to make a tip between Hertha and Union Berlin about the more ambitious capital club.
