Union Berlin vs Schalke Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Union Berlin host Schalke in the Bundesliga at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei on Sunday. Union Berlin will fancy themselves against an out of form Schalke side who have lost their last four matches.

Union Berlin Form


Union Berlin have drifted towards the relegation zone after a poor run of form. Since the break Union have played some top quality opposition, losing 2-0 to Bayern Munich at home and a 4-0 derby defeat at Hertha Berlin.

A credible 1-1 draw followed at home to Mainz when Robert Andrich was sent off. In their last match Union Berlin were beaten 4-1 at Borussia Monchengladbach. 

Despite the defeat Sebastian Andersson got himself on the score sheet for his 12th Bundesliga goal this season.

Schalke Form


Schalke had a fine start to the Bundesliga season but their form turned dramatically at the turn of the year. Their last Bundesliga victory came on 17 January - 12 league matches ago. Included in that run is seven defeats and four draws.

Since returning from the break Schalke have looked toothless losing 4-0 away to Borussia Dortmund, 3-0 at home to Augsburg and 2-1 away to Fortuna Dusseldorf. In their last match Schalke suffered another costly 1-0 home defeat to lowly Werder Bremen.

Schalke have leaked goals at the back while going forward has not proven to be a strength, especially away from home. It only gets worse on the road, in their last six Bundesliga away games they have scored one goal.

Schalke News


Central midfield is a big issue for Schalke. Suat Serdar is out for the season, Omar Mascarell is doubtful and Weston McKennie is suspended.

Attacking midfielder Amine Harit is also injured which leaves Schalke short in creativity.

Union Berlin vs Schalke Head to Head


Schalke have beaten Union Berlin in two of their last three matches. In their clash earlier this season in at the Veltins Arena Schalke won 2-1. 

Benito Raman opened the scoring for Schalke before Marcus Ingvartsen equalised 10 minutes before the break. A late Suat Serdar goal for Schalke secured all three points.

Union Berlin vs Schalke Odds


Union Berlin are valued at 2.37 to win with Schalke 04 at 2.90 and a draw priced at 3.00.

In the correct score market a 1-0 victory for Union Berlin is paying 8.00, a 0-0 draw can be backed at 9.50 and a 1.0 away victory priced at 8.50.

The over/under goals market offers value with under 2.5 goals paying 1.72 and over 2.10.

Union Berlin vs Schalke Match Up


Neither Union Berlin nor Schalke have been in free scoring form recently so I expect a low-scoring encounter. Berlin certainly have the edge at home considering Schalke’s struggles on the road.

Union Berlin forward Sebastian Anderson scored last weekend and has 12 Bundesliga goals this season.
