RB Leipzig is welcoming FC Union Berlin to Red Bull Arena in round 17 in the German Bundesliga.
Leipzig is struggling a bit as of late, and they haven’t won any of their last 2 Bundesliga games, and the gap between them and Bayern at the top is now 4 points. Leipzig is in 3rd place with 32 points, 28 scored goals, and only 14 conceded goals. In their last Bundesliga game, Leipzig was playing against Wolfsburg on the road, and they have had 53% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 77% of the correct passes. Leipzig was leading 0-1 in the 4th minute, but they have conceded two goals by the end of the first half. In the 54th minute, Leipzig was able to score a goal, and the final score of this game was 2-2. Poulsen and Angelino are the leading goalscorers for Leipzig with 4 goals each, while Olmo and Angelino added 4 assists each. Laimer, Henrichs, Konate, and Szoboszlai are all injured for Leipzig at the moment. There is still enough time for Leipzig to catch up to Bayern, and possibly even win the title, but Leipzig better get back on track and start winning games.
Union Berlin is still having a dream season, and they are undefeated in their last 3 Bundesliga games. During this streak Union has scored 5 goals while conceding 3 goals. Thanks to their fantastic form, Union is now in 6th place with 28 points, 32 scored goals, and 20 conceded goals. Union is playing well on both ends, especially in the attacking end where they are one of the best teams in Bundesliga so far. In their most recent Bundesliga game, Union was hosting Leverkusen, and they have had only 33% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and only 66% of the correct passes. It was a tough game, but Union was defending extremely well, and they were even able to score a goal in the 88th minute. With this late goal, Union has won this match 1-0. Max Kruse is the leading goalscorer for Union with 6 goals, while Awoniyi added 5 goals. Trimmel has added 5 assists, while Kruse has 4 assists. Ujah, Pohjanpalo, Kruse, and Becker are all injured for Union Berlin at the moment. I keep thinking that Union will start sinking because they don’t have the depth to keep this up, but here they are, still going strong.
Leipzig has won all three home games against Union, and they have lost only 1 home game so far this season. the trends are on Leipzig’s side in this matchup, and they are the better and deeper team here. I’m taking Leipzig to get back on the winning streak, and for Union to break their unbeatable streak.
