FC Union Berlin is welcoming Borussia Dortmund to An der Alten Forsterei in round 13 in German Bundesliga.
Union is having a great season so far, and they are in high 6th place in Bundesliga with 18 points, 25 scored goals, and 17 conceded goals so far this season. in their last 4 games, Union has 3 draws and a loss, but they have lost only 1 of their last 12 games overall. In their last Bundesliga match, Union was playing against Stuttgart on the road, and they have had only 38% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and only 66% of the correct passes. This wasn’t a particularly good game for Union, but they have had a 0-2 lead in the 76th minute. Union has conceded 2 goals in the last 6 minutes of the game, and they can be lucky they didn’t lose this game. The final score of this match was 2-2. Kruse has scored 6 goals for Union so far, while Andrich, Awoniyi, and Friedrich have added 3 goals each. Timmel has added 5 assists, while Kruse added 4 assists. Ujah, Pohjanpalo, Schlotterbeck, and Kruse are injured, while Andrich is suspended because of the red card. Union has been solid both at home and on the road so far this season, but I don’t think they will stay this high in the standings for much longer.
After being demolished by Stuttgart last weekend, Borussia lost their coach, and the current assistant coach took over. In his first game as the new head coach, Borussia was playing against Werder Bremen on the road, and they were the better team in that game with 55% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and 82% of the correct passes. Borussia got ahead in the 12th minute, but Werder tied the score in the 28th minute. Borussia was awarded a penalty kick in the 78th minute, which Reus missed, but the ball bounced back to him, and he scored. With this goal, Borussia got ahead, and they have won this match 1-2 on the road. With 22 points, 25 scored goals, and 16 conceded goals, Borussia is now in 4th place, but they are already 6 points behind Leverkusen at the top of the table. Haaland is still the leading goalscorer for Borussia with 10 goals, but he is still injured. Sancho has added 5 assists for Borussia Dortmund so far. Schmelzer and Hazard are also injured, and they will miss this game. Borussia started the season well, but they have since cooled off, and their game has diminished. The team reacted well under the new coach, but we are yet to see if they can keep doing it.
In each of the 6 games between these two teams we saw at least 3 goals, and the trends are on Borussia’s side. Borussia has won 2 of their 3 games on the road against Union Berlin. Dortmund also hasn’t lost any of their last 6 games on the road. Union is having a great season, but we are getting a good price on the better team here, and that is Borussia Dortmund.
