Hertha BSC welcomes Union Berlin
Hertha BSC welcomes Union Berlin at the Olympiastadion in a first game from the 27th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s examine it through our football best betting tips for today.
Hertha BSC returned to action after the COVID-19 pandemic with a great effort. The Old Lady travelled to face Hoffenheim and achieved a spectacular 3-0 win at the PreZero Arena. All of the three goals in Oliver Baumann’s net was scored in the second half. Hoffe’s Kevin Akpoguma scored himself an own goal, while Vedad Ibisevic and Matheus Cunha finished the job for Hertha.
Hertha were troubled by the sudden departure of their previous manager Jurgen Klinsmann, but now they kicked off their season again with a great performance. Surely this is what the manager Bruno Labbadia wants to see everytime from his boys.
Bruno Labbadia has a healthy squad before this game in Berlin. The only absentee right now is the Dutch defender Karim Rekik who is currently injured.
For Union Berlin the season did not restart in the best way possible, but they were playing Bayern Munich after all. Union hosted the champion in the capital, but the Bavarians enjoyed a calm and untroubled 2-0 victory. The hosts gave their all, but goals from Robert Lewandowski and Benjamin Pavard were enough for FC Hollywood.
In this local derby against Hertha BSC Union Berlin will try to stop their run of three consecutive losses in all competitions. Maurice Opfermann Arcones, Sheraldo Becker, Laurenz Dehl and Akaki Gogia remain sidelined, so the manager Urs Fischer won’t be able to use them.
In November these two teams met for a first time and Union achieved a 1-0 win at home. It was a dramatic fixture as the hosts scored their winning goal from a penalty kick in the 87th minute. Now Hertha will have a chance for revenge.
That’s our football best betting tips for the Bundesliga capital derby between Hertha BSC and Union Berlin on Friday.
