IT'S derby day in Berlin as Hertha and Union go head-to-head at the Olympiastadion.
The Bundesliga got off to a successful restart last week, with a full schedule completed behind closed doors as it became the first major league in Europe to return from Covid-19 suspension.
Although a derby which has seen sporadic meetings over the years, this is set to be a cracker with both sides in mid-table and looking up rather than down.
Hertha leapfrogged their cross-town rivals after an excellent 3-0 away victory over Hoffenheim last time out, while Union went down 2-0 to defending champions Bayern.
When is Hertha vs Union?
- The pair will go head-to-head in the German capital on Friday, May 22.
- Kick-off is at 7.30pm BST.
- When the sides met earlier in the campaign, a 90th minute Seb Polter penalty gave Union a 1-0 victory on home soil.
