  1. Post update

    Hertha Berlin 2-0 Union Berlin

    Right, where was I? It’s 2-0 to the hosts and as we approach the hour mark that could well be game over.

  2. Post update

    We’re back! Let me try and watch the goals and I’ll tell you what happened.

  3. Post update

    My first live text from home and my stream has gone down seconds before two goals.

    This has gone well.

  4. goal

    GOAL – Hertha Berlin 2-0 Union Berlin

    Dodi Lukebakio (52 mins)

    And it’s two in a minute! Livewire Dodi Lukebakio springs the defence, rounds the keeper and fires in.

    If there was a crowd in they’d be going nuts.

  5. goal

    GOAL – Hertha Berlin 1-0 Union Berlin

    Vedad Ibisevic (51 mins)

    Breakthrough! And it’s the veteran Vedad Ibisevic, who has scored in every Bundesliga season since 2006, who heads in the opener. Pick that one out.

  6. Post update

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    Hertha slice through the Union defence once more, Dodi Lukebakio has his shot well saved once more, but he was offside.

    At the other end Union almost get in but Dedryck Boyata makes a vital near-post block.

  7. KICK-OFF

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

  8. Post update

    Here they come, down the escalator once again. All set?

  9. Post update

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    Hertha have now failed to score in the first half in seven of their last eight Bundesliga home matches.

    Rubbish.

  10. Can you hear the Hertha sing?

    The Hertha fans will be the happier of the two sides so far – they were on top but could not find a way through.

  12. HALF-TIME

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    One man claps as the half-time whistle goes.

  13. CLOSE!

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    Very close indeed!

    Lovely free-kick from Union midfielder Robert Andrich, gets it up and over the wall but can only land it on the roof of the net.

  14. CLOSE!

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    Hertha look a threat when they can get the ball forwards quickly, this time it’s Matheus Cunha running in behind. He hits his shot very early and Rafal Gikiewicz has to make another sharp low save.

  15. ouch

    Post update

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    Vladimir Darida and Marcus Ingvartsen go in for a challenge and Ingvartsen comes off worse, a proper clout to the jaw. The referee and VAR decide that it was but an accident and we can carry on.

    Fifteen minutes left in the first half.

  16. Post update

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    You’ll have to ask someone a lot smarter and a lot more tuned in than me what exactly this is all about and whether it’s worth it or not but here’s a picture from a bar outside the ground.

  17. GREAT SAVE!

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    Good effort! Hertha streak away down the right, Vedad Ibisevic puts in a low cross and Matheus Cunha goes for an outlandish backheel which is saved at the near post. Would have been some goal.

    Marko Grujic heads the corner wide.

  18. Post update

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    Hertha haven’t won at home since December, although they do have a valid excuse for at least two of those months. They’ve been through four managers in seven months, including Jurgen Klinsmann who lasted only about 80 days.

    Watford-esque.

  19. Post update

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    Have a dig! Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic shoots from close to 40 yards and nails his shot, but it’s always rising and clears the discus pit behind the goal as well. I think that’s what it is. Could be the high jump?

    You’d get a better view from behind that goal than at that other athletics hybrid, the Withdean, I’d wager.

  20. Post update

    Hertha Berlin 0-0 Union Berlin

    The dog just knocked my ipad off the table – we’re all adapting to the new normal here.

    You didn’t miss anything, I don’t think. Still goalless.
