    We're taking the Over here on Friday between Hertha and Union.


    - After a slow start, Hertha Berlin came out of the traps quick in the second half of last week's game to Hoffenheim. Hertha scored three goals (incl. an own goal from Hoffenheim) in a little over 15 minutes to blow out the home team and put a much needed sheen on the final score of a game that had been competitive up to that point.

    - Despite losing 2-0 to Bayern Munich last week, Union Berlin played well throughout and gave up just three shots on goal the entire match to the league leaders. However match fitness played a part in the first week back and Bayern on several occasions looked soft in parts. Hertha Berlin will present a different challenge this week as they like to use long balls through the middle and target one on one aerial duels with backlines, a position where they are traditionally strong and rank first in the league on aerial duels won on the season at 54.5%.

    - Union also like to employ long balls but their greatest strength in this one will be their set piece placement against Hertha. Hertha have been weak against defending against set pieces this season (free kicks), and their fouling tendencies in dangerous areas only add to the risk. At +1700, Marcus Ingvartsen to score from outside the penalty box looks a great outside shout in this one as we see Union getting a high number of free kicks here. 

    Union have scored in seven of their last nine games this year and three of their road wins averaged 2.67 total goals in the second half alone. Hertha forward Matheus Cunha has scored in all three of his last three starts and four of the last six H2H's between these two teams have seen Over 2.5 goals cash. Look for that to happen once again and take the Over on Friday between Hertha and Union.
