29 games into the season and it is fair to say that Union Berlin have enjoyed a decent season so far. Having amassed 31 points from a possible 87 this season, they sit 14th on the standings and are six points clear off the relegation zone.

Die Eisernen began their campaign on a high, steamrolling through a couple of oppositions to post the three points on the board. However, results at the club have since gone south as they have struggled to replicate the performances they managed earlier in the season.

Staring in the face of relegation, head coach Urs Fischer has to return to the drawing board to get his faltering side right back on track. This Sunday presents Union Berlin with a shot at redemption as they take on out-of-sorts Schalke 04 on home turf.

Union Berlin vs Schalke 04 Team News

Handed the difficult task of staging an unlikely upset against top-four hopeful Borussia Monchengladbach on the last match-day, Union Berlin were comprehensively defeated by their superior opposition.

Playing in unfamiliar territory, Die Fohlen were not taking any chances as they saw to it that they clinched all three points against Fischer’s charges. Dominating proceedings throughout the game, they were the better side and looked good value for their huge victory.

Union Berlin were left empty-handed as they were outclassed in every single department of the pitch, pegged in their own half for large portions of the game. Ultimately, they were forced to settle for another defeat with a 4-2 score-line posted on the board.

Schalke 04, on the other hand, fell to yet another defeat, this time at the hands of relegation-threatened Werder Bremen. Ever since the league restart, the Royal Blues have failed to register a single win as they seem to have lost their magic touch.

With a pretty generous fixture schedule pitting them with relegation candidates Fortuna Dusseldorf and Werder Bremen, the Royal Blues were left empty-handed in both games. It is fair to say that David Wagner’s side have been the worst side in the league since the league restart on May 16.

With both sides in dire need of points here, we are in for a nice treat in this fixture. The home side have failed to register a single win in their last seven games across all competitions, and have admitted defeat in five of their last six.

They have failed to produce impressive results on home turf, sporting a four-game winless streak. Also, they have just one win of note since December 2019. It is also worth noting that they have conceded no less than two goals in five of their previous seven games.

The Royal Blues are also sporting a dismal run of form having failed to record a win over their previous 13 attempts and are winless in eight of their previous nine games across all competitions. Finally, they have shipped nine goals from their last three away games.

Injured or Suspended Players

Union Berlin: Akaki Gogia, Sheraldo Becker and Sebastian Polter.

Schalke 04: Omar Mascarell, Benjamin Stambouli, Suat Serdar, Amine Hart and Weston McKennie.

Union Berlin vs Schalke Predictions

Both sides have been woeful in recent weeks and are equally matched. These are two teams bereft of confidence at the moment and desperate to land some much-needed points in the bag. However, both sides cannot easily be separated on paper. As such, we will be entertaining the goal market. Expect both sides to find the back of the net in this fixture with Union Berlin perhaps, nicking a narrow win.
