We are zooming in on Hertha Berlin and Union Berlin, as the duo face each other at Olympiastadion on Saturday in what surely will be an exciting Bundesliga clash.

Hertha Berlin are looking for a payback after suffering a disappointing defeat in their latest encounter with Union Berlin but odds don't favour them to pull it off.

It was an enormously entertaining 3-1 match, when these two sides last played each other. A similar feast of goals would go down well this coming Saturday.

Form favours Union Berlin for the win a little more than prices with the bookmakers suggests. Even playing on home soil, the bookmakers have placed a little too much faith in Hertha Berlin, and we aim for the away win.
