Union win the derby

The three points are heading eastwards to Köpenick after Union deliver their fifth Berlin derby victory in a row over Hertha. The visitors go level with Bayern Munich at the summit of the Bundesliga table, firmly placing themselves in an extraordinary title race. For Hertha on the other hand, they remain in the bottom two with relegation now a serious threat for the capital club.

Into the final stages

There's not long to go here in Berlin. Union's 2-0 lead remains intact and it currently looks as though they are going level on points with Bayern. Can Hertha conjure up a late chance to make things interesting?

Yet another chance for Richter

Marco Richter sends a stinging volley into the palms of Frederik Rønnow, but the Danish goalkeeper is once again able to successfully defend his goal.

Rönnow with the save

In a game where the Union goalkeeper has had little to do, he comes up with a fine save at an important moment in the game. Florian Niederlechner flicks a corner directly on goal at the near post, but Rönnow's fine reaction to parry away ensures that Union's two-goal lead remains.

Seguin's derby delight

Union goalscorer Paul Seguin registered his second-ever Bundesliga goal after extending his side's advantage just moments ago. His only other Bundesliga goal also came against today's opponents Hertha whilst a Wolfsburg player (on December 3, 2016 in Wolfsburg's 3-2 defeat).
72'

Weathering the storm

After a brief barrage of Hertha pressure, Union have made it count for nothing. The visitors have looked entirely solid at the back and now possess a two-goal lead. The hosts on the other hand are still yet to register a shot on target in this game, and now face a very long way back into the fraught encounter.

Union double their lead!

Clear daylight between the sides now! Union have doubled their lead on the break. Rani Khedira wins the ball back deep in the Union half, before the ball is played through to Sheraldo Becker. The Union striker shrugs off the defender, and heads directly towards goal, before teeing it off to Paul Seguin who tucks it away nicely into an empty net.

Hertha regaining a foothold

Hertha are now enjoying a fine period themselves. Amidst re-establihsing a foothold in the game, a corner for the hosts flies past a number of bodies but nobody is quite able to prod at it. The Hertha home support has got audibly more vocal, perhaps sensing that this is the opportunity for their team to pounce.

Union are looking relatively secure at the back, whilst continuing to apply pressure when Hertha take to the ball. Can the visitors translate this period of dominance into a second goal?

Fun fact

Union have not lost any of their last 48 Bundesliga matches after taking the lead (34 victories, 14 draws). But perhaps there's hope for Hertha. The last time Union were defeated after going ahead was in December 2020 against today's hosts on this very ground (1-3 after 1-0).

Away we go again

We're back underway here in Berlin. It'll be interesting to see how that late Union goal will change the game. Will Hertha now come out of their shell and force an equaliser? Or will Union extend their lead and go level with Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga?

Union lead at the break

It's Union who have ultimately made their chance count. Hertha have looked the slightly better side statistically-speaking, but the visitors ended the first half strongly, pinning Hertha back deep inside their own half. Having mustered just the one major opportunity and taken it, Union lead 1-0 at half time in the capital.

Goal for Union!

It's the visitors who take the lead! Danilho Doekhi scores with a bullet header to record Union's 10th goal from set-pieces this season. Doekhi has scored his all four of his Bundesliga goals this season with his head, a league high along with Niclas Füllkrug. Whilst Union are a constant threat in the air, the opposite is true of Hertha. They've conceded nine headed goals this season; also a league high.

Union building out from the back

Union are able to find their rhythm, building nicely out from the back. But whilst the initial attacking phases look promising, the attack ultimately fizzles out. That has largely been the story of this game so far.
32'

Chance for Hertha on the break

Kevin Behrens gives the ball away for the visitors, and Hertha hit their opponents on the break. The ball finds Dodi Lukebakio on the edge of the box, before he neatly lays it off to Marco Richter. Whilst he fires the ball over the bar, that probably represents the game's first real chance.

Even stevens

Which way this game will go is anyone's guess at the minute. Both sides have started reasonably well, with neither team fazed by the occassion. But whilst the visitors have nudged ahead on the possession statistics, nobody has been able to threaten either goal.

What an atmosphere!

It's an occasion with an atmopshere to match. Both sets of supporters are heavily contributing to what is turning out to be a rather tense affair.

Acrobatic effort!

The ball floats up beautifully into the Union box to Wilfried Kanga, with the striker ready to pounce acrobatically. But just as the ball is about to reach the Hertha striker, the Union defence clears. Marvin Plattenhardt fires a ball into the box immediately afterwards, but nobody is able to get on the end of it.
8'

More Hertha pressure

Half a chance for Hertha. The hosts are once again a threat in transition, winning the ball back off the Union midfield. Suat Serdar travels well with the ball down the left flank, before slotting back to Jean-Paul Boetius, whose heavy touch kills the attack and Union are able to regather themselves.

Opening exchanges

Amidst the cacophonous atmosphere here in Berlin, both sides are struggling to truly settle. Possession has been regularly exchanged in the opening phases, with no side yet to fashion an opportunity.

Union getting into the game

Union win a free-kick deep inside the Hertha half. After the hosts' initial pressure, the visitors are able to swing one in to the box. Nothing comes from it, but Union are now starting to see more of the ball.

Early Hertha pressure

After building nicely from the back, it's Hertha that are applying the early pressure here. Relentlessly pressing the Union defensive line, Hertha win the ball back just outside the penalty box. Whilst a chance is unable to be created, Hertha have started the most comfortably.

Kick-off

Away we go. The Berlin derby is underway!
キックオフ

All set to go

The Olympiastadion is packed to the rafters, and the players are in the tunnel. It's a derby that's getting hotter and hotter by the year. Can Union do the double over Hertha and win the Berlin derby for the fifth time running? Or will Hertha pick up a much needed three points against their local rivals?

Team news - Hertha

New signing Florian Niederlechner makes the Hertha matchday squad for the first time, whilst Julian Eitschberger also returns to the squad for the first time this season. Eitschberger lacks fond memories of playing Union, after his only Berlin derby experience so far was a 1-4 defeat back in April 2022.

Team news - Hertha

Marvin Plattenhardt captains the hosts today, making his first start for the club in 2023, whilst today also represents his first appearance since it was made public that his current contract at the club will not be renewed. Peter Pekarik also comes into the starting eleven for the first time this season, whilst Filip Uremovic starts for the first time in almost four months (October 2, 2022, 1-1 against Hoffenheim). This means that Hertha make changes to 3 of the 4 positions in the backline.

Team news - Union

Jerome Roussillon is in the starting eleven for the first time this season and his first ever start for the club comes against their city rivals. Andras Schäfer also returns to the starting eleven for the first time in three months, whilst striker Sheraldo Becker makes his 100th competitive appearance for Union.

Watch: Bremen 1-2 Union during the week

Meanwhile, Union have come from behind to win both of their games this calendar year against Hoffenheim and Werder – a feat they have now achieved a league-high three times this season. They ended the ‘Hinrunde’ on a club-record 33 points after beating Bremen and in second place behind Bayern, having led for several matchdays in 2022/23. But they will need to do something unique today. No team other than Bayern sitting second at the start of a matchday this season has won their game. The record for every other club is five draws and eight defeats, with the Irons claiming a 1-1 draw against Bayern and losing 4-1 in Freiburg.

Watch: Hertha 0-5 Wolfsburg during the week

They say the form book goes out the window ahead of a derby, and Hertha will be praying that’s the case here. They’ve lost five of their last six Bundesliga games, while the 5-0 loss here to Wolfsburg on Tuesday was their heaviest of the season. Two defeats by an aggregate score of 8-1 to kick off 2023 has seen the Old Lady tumble into the automatic relegation spots – two points adrift of safety.

Watch: The Berlin family divide

A couple of years back we met with a father and daughter ahead of the derby. He’s a dyed-in-the-wool Hertha fan and she’s a staunch supporter of Union. How did that happen and is it emblematic of a shift in the capital?
camera-photo

Why is this such a special fixture?

Yes, it’s a derby in a capital city, but Berlin has a recent history that is unique anywhere in the world. It was a city divided for several decades during the Cold War. Not just in terms of politics or social class, but by a physical wall constructed by the Soviet Union. Hertha emerged as the city’s dominant football club in the West and the Bundesliga, while Union had to battle it out in the East German league system and later climb the reunified German footballing pyramid. The fans were once close – as close as could be when separated by a wall – but a rivalry has now emerged as Berlin continues its attempts to come together.

Union made light work of their city rivals on the opening matchday, with debutant Jordan getting the scoring going in a 3-1 win at the Alte Försterei.

the father a dyed-in-the-wool Hertha fan and the daughter a staunch supporter of Union.

Prior to 2020/21, no Berlin team had ever finished above Hertha when competing together in the Bundesliga. Union bucked that trend in only their second top-flight campaign and have since finished in seventh and fifth, with Hertha down in 14th and then 16th. The team from Köpenick have won the last four encounters, including a DFB Cup tie at the Olympiastadion last season, to assert their claim on being number 1 in the capital.

On-field fortunes aren't the only contrasts ahead of this Berlin derby. The histories of these two capital clubs couldn't be more different, as two fans explained when we went back in time...

Contrasting fortunes

Hertha have lost both games so far in 2023, while Union have taken maximum points. That's left the Old Lady second bottom of the standings, poles apart from second-placed Union, who sit just three points adrift of leaders Bayern.
