Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tips – 1.FC Union Berlin
Union Berlin has been quite active during the transfer-window and has secured some underrated deals which should bolster a squad that was lacking in quantity last season.
But manager Urs Fischer has an established group of players at his disposal starting with the goalkeeper Frederik Rönnow. The backline is certainly the strength of the team and it had the 3rd best defensive record in the Bundesliga. Timo Baumgartl was signed for another year on loan but is being diagnosed for cancer therefore Robin Knoche and Paul Jaeckel will comprise the 3-man defence along with new arrival Diego Leite.
Niko Gießelmann should start as the wing-back on the left-side with Christoph Trimmel on the right. Grischa Prömel departed for Hoffenheim in the summer so Rani Khedira will be the anchorman of the side with Jannik Haberer and Genki Haraguchi as the two central-midfielders. Taiwo Awoniyi also left the club therefore Sheraldo Becker and the new signing Jordan Siebatcheu are likely the two centre-forwards up front.

Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tips – Hertha BSC
Hertha Berlin has seen a host of departures during the summer but new manager Sandro Schwarz has a task on his hands to make any real progress this season.
First-choice keeper Alexander Schwolow has moved to Schalke 04 while his understudy Marcel Lotka has joined Borussia Dortmund so Danish keeper Oliver Christiansen will step up to the plate. Niklas Stark also left the club so Marc Oliver Kempf and Dedryck Boyata will form the centre-back partnership. Marvin Plattenhardt will take the right-back role with new signing Jonjoe Kenny on the left side of the back line.
Santiago Ascacibar is another to leave the club while Lucas Tousart is suspended so loan-signing Ivan Sunjic will be the anchorman along with Vladimír Darida and Suat Serdar in the middle of the park. Marco Richter is one of 3 Bundesliga players being diagnosed with testicular cancer so Myziane Maolida and Dodi Lukébakio are going to be the two wide attackers while Davie Selke will be the lone centre-forward.
