Union has been in fantastic form in Bundesliga as of late, and they haven’t lost any of their last 5 Bundesliga games. Thanks to this fantastic streak, Union Berlin is in high 5th place with 25 points, 31 scored goals, and only 20 conceded goals. In their last Bundesliga game, Union Berlin was hosting Wolfsburg, and they have had 48% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 75% of the correct passes. After losing in the 10th minute, Union tied the score in the 29th minute. Wolfsburg has conceded a red card in the 50th minute, and Union had the golden opportunity to win another game. In the 52nd minute Union has scored a goal, but they conceded a goal from the penalty spot in the 65th minute. The final score of this game was 2-2. Kruse is the leading goalscorer for Union with 6 goals and 4 assists, while Awoniyi added 5 goals. Ujah, Pohjanpalo, and Kruse are injured, while Promel is suspended because of the yellow cards. I think even Union is surprised with their form and success this season, and if they can keep this up for a little while longer, Union just might end up in the Europa League spot.
Leverkusen has lost 2 of their last 3 Bundesliga games while the third game ended in a draw. Leverkusen was able to break their bad streak with a nice win against Eintracht earlier this week, and they have advanced to the next stage of this competition. Leverkusen is in solid 3rd place in the Bundesliga standings with 29 points, 30 scored goals, and 15 conceded goals, and they are one of the best teams overall this season. Alario is still the leading goalscorer for Leverkusen with 8 goals, while Schick added 5 goals. Amiri has added 5 assists. Arias, Paulinho, Palacios, Weiser, and Bellarabi are all injured for Leverkusen at the moment. Leverkusen was hosting Werder in their last Bundesliga game, and they were the dominant team with 73% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 87% of the correct passes. Despite their dominance, Leverkusen was behind since the 52nd minute, but they were able to score a tying goal in the 70th minute. The final result of this game was 1-1. Leverkusen is only 4 points from the top, and that is thanks to Leipzig and Bayern losing their games last weekend, but if they want to stay there, Leverkusen must get back on the winning track.
Union and Leverkusen have played 5 times against each other, and Leverkusen has won all 5 of those games, and each game ended with at least 2 goals. Union is in good form, but they have a few important injuries, and I think their good streak ends here. I’m taking Leverkusen and goals in this one.
