Hertha vs Union: prediction for the Bundesliga match
A Berlin derby is about to unfold in Week 18 of Bundesliga - Hertha will host 2nd placed Union on January 28. Will the Iron ones prove their superiority? The answer is in our prediction.
On mid-week, Hertha suffered another huge blow - with so many injuries team is unable to compete with stronger opponents. Sandro Schwartz' men conceded three goals in the first half of the match against high-flying Wolfsburg. Hertha suffered a heavy defeat (0:5), which proved that team's defensive problems won't be easy to fix. The Old Lady is close to the bottom of the standings and so far it is unclear, what will it take to drag the team out of this mess.
Union, on the other hand, showed mental toughness in both of their matches after the pause. Team managed to beat Hoffenheim (3:1) and Werder (2:1). Urs Fischer's men climbed to a 2nd position in the standings, getting back to the title race. Team is showing some impressive display and players are surely in a great morale condition. In the upcoming Berlin derby, the Iron ones will try to prove that they are the best capital club right now.

Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) on Hertha
The Old Lady needs to finally improve the defensive performance. Hertha have many problems up front, so we are not expecting goals from the hosts. Union also won't go all the way forward, so we offer to place a bet on total under.
Our second bet is on total under 2.5 goals
