Hertha BSC and Union Berlin meet forces at Olympiastadion Berlin, in a match for Matchday 27 of the Bundesliga. In the last head ‑ to ‑ head for this edition of the league, played on 02‑11‑2019, Union Berlin won at home by (1‑0). The home advantage may play an important role in this match, since both teams present considerable differences in the results achieved at home and away.
Hertha BSC :
The home team is currently in 13th position, with 28 points won, after 7 wins, 7 draws and 11 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Fortuna Düsseldorf, by (3‑3). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Werder Bremen, by (2‑2). This is a team that curiously tends to achieve more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 defeats as a visitor, with 27 goals scored and 24 suffered; against 4 victories, 4 draws and 7 defeats in his stadium, with 17 goals scored and 30 suffered. In their last 10 home games for the championship, Hertha BSC have won 1, tied 3 and lost 6, winning 6 points out of 30 possible. The team allowed the opponent goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition, so he has not been very strong defensively. In 25 games in this competition, he only got 2 comebacks in the 16 games in which he suffered the first goal. In the last 13 home matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (31′ ‑ 45 ‘).
If there is something that Hertha Berlin cannot accept, it is losing a classic. By playing at home, the obligation to win becomes even greater. If we consider that he lost on the first day, the owners of the house come for this game with a desire for revenge. Anything can happen in this match, but we must see the local club prevail in the search for the three points. In this match, Karim Rekik will be left out, because he is in the medical department.
Union Berlin :
The visiting team is currently in 11th position, with 30 points won, after 9 wins, 3 draws and 13 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Wolfsburg, by (2‑2). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Freiburg, by (3‑1). This is a stronger team with the support of their fans, since in the last 30 games they have recorded 5 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses as a visitor, with 18 goals scored and 28 suffered; against 8 victories, 3 draws and 4 defeats in his stadium, with 25 goals scored and 16 suffered. In their last 10 away games for the championship, Union Berlin has recorded 3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses, so it has won 10 points in 30 possible. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 matches, so it has not had great defensive strength, but its attack has marked regularly, since it has scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 25 matches in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 12 times and never got the comeback.
The Berlin Union cannot complain about its campaign, as it is within expectations. Of course it won’t accommodate, especially if you want to have better numbers. Now he will have a classic ahead and a defeat is something he does not want. For having won the direct confrontation in the first half of the championship, he knows that he can surprise again. Therefore, we should see visitors focused on getting at least one draw. In this match, Laurenz Dehl, Maurice Opfermann Arcones, Sheraldo Becker and Akaki Gogia will be left out, because they are in the medical department.
