Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Union Berlin host Bayern Munich in an intriguing Bundesliga match on Sunday. The hosts have proved difficult to beat at Stadion An der Alten Försterei, can they hold off the champions?

Union Berlin Form


Union Berlin have been inconsistent in their first Bundesliga campaign. They won 2-1 at Eintracht Frankfurt before giving up a 2-0 lead at home in a 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg.

Union were knocked out of the German Cup quarterfinals after a 3-1 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen. Their last match was a 3-1 loss at Freiburg where Sebastian Andersson scored his 12th goal of the season.

Urs Fischer’s side eased away from the relegation zone on the back of strong home form. Union Berlin are undefeated in six of their last eight home matches in the Bundesliga, winning five.
