Stadium: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin)
The centrepiece of the German Cup semi-final will be the Berlin derby, with Hertha hosting the game. The bookmakers have not picked a favourite, but we think the Iron Ones will take advantage of the Old Lady's problems.Receive Your Welcome Bonus!
The Old Lady's position in the standings is not as stable as Union's. After 19 rounds, the home side is only 13th in the table, four points ahead of the teams from the danger zone: Arminia and Stuttgart. Hertha started 2022 with a defeat against Cologne and a draw against Wolfsburg. Overall, there was nothing special in terms of results and statistics.
Union is fighting for a Champions League spot. The recent newcomer to the German elite has made incredible progress. This season, they played unsuccessfully in the group stage of the Conference League, which meant that the club had a double burden at the time. After the winter break, Union played an away game against Bayer and beat Hoffenheim. At the moment, they are direct rivals in the battle for a place in the top four. They won a tough Bochum side that's higher in the table than Hertha. And let's not forget that the match is likely to be played with empty stands, which is also a disadvantage for Hertha.
Expert Betting Tips
In the first round of Bundesliga 2021/22, Union beat Hertha with a score of 2:0 on home soil. Since then, the Iron Ones are not getting any weaker. Even though Hertha has a new head coach, they haven't gained more stability or confidence in their strength. The bookmakers slightly overestimate the home side, putting the game on an even line. As for the total, we doubt that the upcoming encounter will be productive. We propose the following odds for this match: Union will qualify for 1.66, TM (2) for 1.89, W2 for 2.37.
