Union Berlin Recent Form

Consistency is key at the highest level in the Bundesliga, and a lack of that has really harmed Union Berlin’s ability to make a push into the top half so far this season. They currently find themselves down in 11th place in the league table, and while they aren’t all too far off the race for a place in the UEFA Europa League, they’ve got a lot of work to do if they wish to ascend to those heights.

Trips away from home have been fairly profitable for them in their last six games with notable wins over Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt to their name in Bundesliga. However, while they also played out a fascinating 2-2 draw with Wolfsburg, they have three losses in their last five. Back on March 7, before the suspension of the league, they were beaten 3-1 by Freiburg – and prior to that they lost twice to Bayer Leverkusen in both Bundesliga and the DFB Cup.

Bayern Munich Recent Form

Following a less than stellar start to the campaign, Bayern Munich have been making up for lost time in the form of several dominant displays both domestically and in the UEFA Champions League. They are top of the table by four points, putting some much needed distance between themselves and Borussia Dortmund.

Before the lockdown, one thing and one thing only was on the agenda: winning. They cruised to a 4-1 triumph over Cologne and edged out a 3-2 win over Paderborn, and then at Stamford Bridge, they put on a clinic to beat Chelsea 3-0 in the first leg of their knockout tie. They proceeded to batter Hoffenheim 6-0 and beat Schalke 1-0 in the DFB Cup, and finally, they made it four clean sheets in a row by securing three points against Augsburg.

Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich Match Prediction

Union Berlin don’t tend to crawl back into their shell all too often, and we can picture them pouring the pressure on Bayern early on – especially after a two-month break. However, once they’ve had a feel for just how fresh the visitors are going to be, it’s not going to be too long before they start to crumble.

Bayern are capable of scoring from just about anywhere on the pitch and that’s exactly what they’re going to do. This is all about putting on a clinic and sending a reminder to the rest of the Bundesliga that they are the ones to beat.

Logically speaking Berlin could easily find themselves on the scoresheet, but when push comes to shove, they aren’t capable of going toe to toe with Bayern Munich and coming out with anything other than a beating.
