Union Berlin vs Real Madrid Predictions


With Real likely to field a weakened selection, Union can make this a competitive and exciting finale in Berlin.

I´m backing BTTS and over 2.5 goals in a likely high-octane occasion at the Olympiastadion. 

  • Union Berlin have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 5 matches
  • Union Berlin have seen over 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 9 home matches
  • Real Madrid have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 6 away matches
  • Real Madrid have seen over 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 away matches (Champions League)

Head to Head


Real Madrid claimed a narrow 1-0 win when these sides met in their only previous contest in Spain earlier this season.

Union finally ended their lengthy wait for victory with a much-needed 3-1 win against Monchengladbach on Saturday. The Berliners had been winless in 16 games before a fine performance secured a first success since the end of August. Remarkably, Union lost a club-record 12 successive matches before sacking long-serving boss Urs Fischer. 

Since the arrival of Nenad Bjelica, Die Eisernen have lost just one of their last five fixtures, including a pair of 1-1 draws against Napoli and Braga in this competition.

Head coach Bjelica is likely to field an unchanged starting XI after Union´s excellent 3-1 win against Monchengladbach on Saturday. Danilho Doekhi and Sheraldo Becker are the only expected absentees from Bjelica´s matchday squad. 

Real Madrid Form


Real Madrid extended their unbeaten run to 14 matches with a 1-1 draw at Real Betis this past weekend. Los Merengues have won 11 and drawn three since a 3-1 loss at Atletico in September. 

Jude Bellingham continued his sensational scoring run with the opener on Saturday before a second-half strike from Aitor Ruibal denied Real a sixth successive victory. 

Carlo Ancelotti´s men have struggled for clean sheets In Champions League away matches, with only one in their last seven over the past 14 months.

Ancelotti could make some changes to his selection with qualification as winners of Group C already secured. Jude Bellingham and Rodrygo could earn a rest, with Dani Ceballos and Joselu likely to come back into the first XI. 

The 14-time European Cup winners make the journey to Berlin with a handful of players expected to remain absent. Thibaut Courtois Eduardo Camavinga, Vinícius Júnior, Dani Carvajal, and Éder Militão are all set to miss out for the visitors. 

Verdict

We should be set for an intriguing match on Tuesday, and I expect plenty of goal-mouth action.

I´m taking BTTS and over 2.5 goals as separate picks in a game that could easily see four or more goals scored.
