RB Leipzig  vs Union Berlin PredictionRB Leipzig vs Union Berlin Prediction and Preview for Saturday's Bundesliga fixture. League leaders RB Leipzig play host to Union Berlin at the Red Bull Arena in one of the matches billed to go down in the Bundesliga this weekend.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 18
Kick-off:
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig)

Leipzig have taken full advantage of inconsistent performances by regular contenders, FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund to firmly establish their position at the top of the league table.

Die Rotten Bullen are placed first on the league table – a position they have maintained for long parts of the season. They have garnered 37 points from their 17 games so far, and are just two points clear of their closest challengers, Borussia Monchengladbach.

Talented head coach, Julian Nagelsmann will certainly be hoping his boys can continue in the rich vein of form they displayed in the first half of the season and hold on to clinch their maiden Bundesliga title. This would be quite an amazing feat for a club created just ten years ago!

Bundesliga newcomers, Union Berlin have performed admirably well so far. Die Eisernen came into this season with the sole aim of survival, and despite recent struggles, are on track to meeting their target.

Urs Fischer’s men are currently eleventh on the standings, with 20 points from 11 games and five points clear of the relegation zone.  They will certainly be hoping to kickstart their year on a high against an inspired RB Leipzig side.

RB Leipzig vs Union Berlin Team News

In their last league game for 2019, before the winter break, RB Leipzig recorded a strong 3-1 win over F.C Augsburg at home. After shockingly going into half-time one goal down, Nagelsmann’s half-time talk worked wonders and the hosts rallied to score three unreplied goals in the second half.

That win ensured Leipzig’s impressive streak continued – they are unbeaten in their last ten games in all competitions and have not suffered a league defeat since October.

Nagelsmann has got his team playing free-flowing, attacking football and they are surely reaping the dividends. They have definitely not been shy in front of goal, and their attack, led by talismanic forward, Timo Werner has found the back of the net, a league high 48 times – an average of nearly 3 goals per game! Impressively, they have managed to keep things tight at the back and have been breached just 20 times this season, the league’s second best record.

Union Berlin’s recent poor form continued with a 2-1 defeat away at Fortuna Dusseldorf on matchday 17. Die Eisernen are currently on a two-match losing streak and have won just once in their last 5 league matches.

Were it not for their decent home form, Berlin would be further down the league table. The newly-promoted side have picked up a win in just one of their last eight trips on the road in the top-flight.

With RB Leipzig seemingly unbeatable at home, securing the bragging rights by no less than two-goal margins in their last four encounters there, Union Berlin’s poor form looks set to continue a little longer.

Injured or Suspended Players:

RB Leipzig: Willi Orban, Kevin Kampl.

Union Berlin: Akaki Gogia, Laurenz Dehl, Suleiman Abdullahi.
