HER Vs UNN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Fight for Berlin set to see the league explode today.
After successfully traversing their way through gameweek 26 with no untoward incidents amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, the Bundesliga returns for gameweek 27. And there couldn’t have been a more befitting tie to usher in the latest round of fixtures in the league than today’s impending Berlin derby.
When Hertha Berlin and Union go at loggerheads this Friday, we are going to be regaled in an edge of the seat thriller. Old rivals hailing from the same city, these two have traditionally hated seeing each other in the middle with either side leaving no stone unturned to come out on top and lay claim to the city.
Also, with us being devoid of this encounter for a good number of seasons with Union Berlin out of the Bundesliga, today’s clash is an eagerly awaited one. And it’s set to fulfil the moniker being accorded to it with both the sides coming hot out of the blocks in a bid to putdown their opponents.
Although these both sit adjacent to each other in the league, today’s clash is one which is heavily tilted in the home side’s favour. The forgone 3-0 trashing they doled out to Hoffenheim saw them make it three matches unbeaten in succession while Union Berlin slipped to a second straight defeat after losing 2-0 to Bayern Munich.
While this won’t be an easy win for them, Hertha Berlin’s ability to score at crucial junctures should see them accrue the three points today.

HER Vs UNN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Union Berlin’s goal-keeper, Rafal will be our pick in between the sticks for the upcoming contest. Although he’s set to concede, the save points he’s set to rope in make him a must have selection with the player alluding to his calibre against Bayern Munich last time around.
HER Vs UNN Dream11 Defenders
Given the wayward quality of both these defences and the ramifications stemming from the tie, we envision this being a high scoring affair. Given the high likelihood of this transpiring, we have decided to limit our side to the bare minimum of three defenders.
And after coming out with a shut down to their name the last time around, all our picks are going to be inducted from the home side for this one. In Dedryck Boyata, Jordan Torunarigha and Lukas Klunter, the side has three guile filled defenders at tits disposal, names who can help rake up a second straight cleansheet for the side.
HER Vs UNN Dream11 Midfielders
While things will be far from straightforward for Union Berlin today, the side will take solace in the fact that they are taking on a paper thin defence today. With Hertha Berlin having catapulted defensively to let in 48 goals, Union Berlin will be quietly confident of piling on the goals today.
And two names who’ll be quissential to the side in this quest will be the diminutive Marius Bulter and Robert Andrich be inducted in our side. Maximillian Mittelstadt and Marko Grujic meanwhile will be our picks from the home side, a partnership capable of stinging together a slew of goal scoring crosses and passes.
HER Vs UNN Dream11 Strikers
With an astounding 11 goals in his kitty, Union Berlin’s top scorer, Sebastian Andersson will be our selection as the striker for the tie. Elsewhere, Hertha Berlin’s leading scorer with the five goals and five assists, Dodi Lukebakio is our first pick alongside four goal man Vedad Ibisevic.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With five goals, Dodi captains our side while Vedad is the vice-captain.
