Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich Team News

Last time out in the league, Union Berlin were dealt a huge blow away at Freiburg, the latter posting an impressive 1-3 score-line on the scorecard. The travelling supporters were left fuming at the sound of the final whistle as they walked out of the stadium in tears. 

They had been on a dismal run of form prior to the huge loss at the Schwarzwald-Stadion following their unlucky DFB Pokal exit and loss against Bayer Leverkusen. However, the Iron Ones will be itching to set the record straight this weekend when they welcome the might of Bayern Munich to the country capital.

Still involved in midtable obscurity, the loss at Freiburg marked their 13th of the season. However, Die Eirsernen still haven’t secured top-flight survival mathematically, an eight-point lead over 16th-placed Dusseldorf is a pretty safe one. 

At the start of the season, Union Berlin churned out positive results at An der Alten Forsterei on the regular but have since witnessed a deep in home form. However, for a newly-promoted side, props have to be handed to Urs Fischer for the amazing job he has done at the club. They are still a force to reckon with having hammered Augsburg, lost narrowly to Leverkusen and salvaged a point against Wolfsburg.

Bayern Munich, on the other hand, need no formal introduction. The Bavarians have reigned supreme in the Bundesliga over the years, winning the league title serially. They saw off Augsburg 2-0 on the last match-day but not without a bit of struggle. Struggling to muster any clear-cut chances in the first period, the floodgates opened in the second half as Hans-Dieter Flick’s men roared to victory.

It is worth noting that the Bavarians had a number of key absentees in the game but still managed to pull off a comfortable victory. The league victory marked Hans-Flick’s 12th since his appointment as manager at the Munich club. The visitors are currently on an eleven-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga, winning ten games in the process.

Heading into this fixture with an impressive five-game winning streak under the belt, the Bavarians will be itching to make it six in a row. Count on the German giants to see off Union Berlin with ease.
