Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After failing to break the deadlock in a goalless draw with Koln, Leipzig will look to get back on course when they face Union Berlin in the Premier League round 20. The Red Bulls are eyeing their 8th home win of the process, but Saturday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. All Dani Olmo, Abdou Diallo, Christopher Nkunku, and Peter Gulacsi remain in the recovery room, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The capital club, on the other hand, are flirting with the Bundesliga title, with the sitting in second place, only one point behind league leaders Bayern Munich. However, beating Leipzig on the road is easier said than done, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Jakob Busk is a major doubt, while Andras Schafer has yet to overcome a foot injury, speaking of the away team.
Highlighted Player (Timo Werner):
Timo Werner is a German starlet, who began his senior career at Vfb Stuttgart. The German forward, who was born in Stuttgart on March 6, 1996, scored 13 goals in 95 appearances in the league for Die Schwaben and in 2016 he moved to fellow Bundesliga side Leipzig and he impressed with the Red Bulls in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign, scoring 21 goals in the process.
To make things even better for the talented attacker, he represented Germany at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and it has to be noted that he provided an assist for Lars Stindl in the title game. Despite the fact that coach Joachim Low rested star players at the tournament in Russia, the Germans eventually won the trophy.
Timo Werner played for the Germany U17 team as well and he won the silver medal with die Mannschaft at the 2012 UEFA European Championship. His main position is centre forward, but he is used as a winger as well. Timo Werner’s contract with Leipzig should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Union Berlin):
Union Berlin are a German football club originally founded back in 1906. Die Eisernen play home games at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei which can hold up to 22,012 spectators. Union Berlin’s home kit is red, with the team wearing white shirts and white shorts on the travels.
Union Berlin finished the 1923 domestic campaign as runners-up, with the team suffering a 3-0 loss to Hamburger SV in the title game. Speaking of the club’s biggest success in the German Cup, die Eisernen made it to the final of the competition in the 2000/2001 season. Schalke, though, proved to be a big catch for Union Berlin in the decider, with Jorg Bohme scoring a brace for die Knappen (2-0).
Union Berlin will face their local rivals Hertha in the 2019/2020 Bundesliga season as they secured promotion to the German top flight, but Hansa Rostock are considered the club’s main rivals.
