With a completely healthy group ready to go, the Hertha Berlin boss Pál Dárdai has no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match.
We’re of the opinion that Hertha Berlin will need to put in a solid display to breach the defence of this Union Berlin side who we think will likely score at least once to gain the upper hand.
That’s why our selection here is for a very even contest with a 1-0 advantage for Union Berlin when the referee blows for full-time.
