Can Hertha BSC Berlin win the second leg against 1. FC Union Berlin?
Hertha has so far been anything but strong in front of a home crowd. They could only win 3 out of 13 games and make 3 draws. They had to accept 7 losses. They met 14 times and allowed 28 points. Away they were only a bit stronger. 5 wins and 4 draws were possible. They surrendered 4 times. They scored 21 goals and had to allow 20 counters. The first game after the resumption of the Bundesliga was on May 16, 2020. They played an away game against TSG Hoffenheim after more than 60 days. Surprisingly, they won this with 0: 3. Sure, this game was played without spectators, just as the upcoming game will be played in camera. For a home team, this can be quite a challenge.
Hertha has been trained by Bruno Labbadia since April 9, 2020. The 54-year-old successfully mastered his debut. The average success rate of Labbadia is 1.58 PPS. He coached VfL Wolfsburg until June 2019. Labbadia has so far had no experience against Union Berlin or against its trainer Fischer. Against the Union, Hertha has to do without a left wing player and a central defender due to injury. That shouldn’t matter too much. The fact is that they lost the first leg away to the Union 1-0. In 2013 they played their last home game against the city rivals, but in the 2nd Bundesliga. This ended with 2: 2. The last time they won abroad was against the Union in 2012. At home they had only 1 draw and 1 defeat so far. After all, their squad is stronger and under Labbadia they should be convincing. It will become clear whether this is enough for a derby victory.

To date, the Union has won only 3 games away and has been able to ensure 2 draws. They surrendered 8 times. They finished 14 times and 25 goals were allowed. With such away statistics, it is difficult to hope for a victory. 6 wins and 1 draw were possible in front of the home crowd. They accepted 6 losses. They scored 18 times and had as many goals. Basically, they are almost on a par with Hertha, as the table position emphasizes. After not playing in a Bundesliga game for more than 60 days, they got to deal with Bayern Munich on May 17th, 2020. At home, they gave the title contender little chance. In the end, they were only defeated 0-2 by the champions. Experts predicted another result that included more goals.
Union Berlin has been coached by Urs Fischer since July 1st, 2018. As a coach, he was able to win the first and only game against Hertha BSC so far. He has never stood on the grass against Labbadia. Fischer currently has 5 losses, including 4 offensive players, who have not yet been able to make an exclamation mark this season. The Union has only lost 1 game against Hertha so far. In return, they won 2 and made 2 draws. With 6: 7 goals after 5 games they are also in the front. In the first leg, the first half ended with a 0-0 and in the end they won 1-0. In general, apart from the first leg, both teams always met in the direct duels. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of 5 games. However, there are hardly any comparative values from the 1st Bundesliga that make prediction significantly more difficult.
