Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic is relishing the Berlin derby this coming weekend and believes the scales are firmly tilted in the favour of his side Hertha Berlin.

The former Red Star Belgrade star is on his second season-long loan at Hertha Berlin as he bids to kick on with his development .   


He is set to sample the Berlin derby this weekend when Hertha Berlin play newly promoted Union Berlin, making the trip across the capital to the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.

Grujic knows how much winning the derby would mean to the fans and has vowed the players will pull out all the stops in search of three points and the bragging rights.

The Liverpool man also believes that Hertha Berlin are well placed to put their rivals to the sword as they have the advantage in a host of areas.

"I can promise that we will do anything for it!" Grujic was quoted as saying by German daily Bild.

"We have more quality in the team, have invested more in new players, have played longer in the Bundesliga and have more experience.

"Everything points towards us. It is up to us. If we cannot do that, that's our fault. Then [it will be because] we are not good enough."

Grujic's Hertha Berlin have taken eleven points from their opening nine games to sit eleventh in the Bundesliga, while Union Berlin have picked up only seven points, sitting 15th and have lost four of their last five league matches.

The two clubs last met in 2013, with a 2-2 draw played out at Hertha Berlin.
