Hertha Berlin vs Union Berlin Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Saturday’s Bundesliga tussle between Hertha Berlin and Union Berlin below.

Hertha Berlin

Jonjoe Kenny, Stevan Jovetic, Chidera Ejuke and Kelian Nsona are out injured for Hertha Berlin, while defender Agustin Rogel is unavailable through suspension. Die Alte Dame lost for the second time on the bounce when they were hammered 5-0 by Wolfsburg and relegation is starting to look like a real possibility this season.

Predicted Lineup for Hertha Berlin: Christensen – Pekarik, Uremovic, Kempf, Mittelstadt – Tousart, Sunjic, Lukebakio, Serdar, Richter – Kanga

Union Berlin

Morten Thorsby isn't expected to return to the Union midfield until next month, though beyond the Norwegian, selection issues are few and far between for the Iron Ones. Union enjoyed a solid 2-1 comeback win at Werder Bremen in their last assignment and moved back up to second spot at full time.

Predicted Lineup for Union Berlin: Ronnow – Doekhi, Knoche, Leite – Juranovic, Haraguchi, Khedira, Haberer, Gießelmann – Becker, Behrens

Player to Watch – Janik Haberer

Janik Haberer scored his fourth Bundesliga goal of the campaign to help Union along the road to victory at Werder Bremen on Wednesday and the 28-year-old ended a lengthy run of nine appearances without notching in the process. With some of the pressure lifted off his shoulder, Haberer could be one to watch out for again on Saturday.
