Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Sunday’s football game between Leipzig and Union Berlin will bring down the curtain on the Bundesliga round 20. The Red Bulls are eager to put an end to their three-game losing run and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the capital club. Even though Leipzig experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-2 loss to Stuttgart, home win should be considered as Union Berlin struggle on the travels. The good news for the hosts is that key midfielder Xavi Simons is back from suspension. Defender Mohamed Simakan misses the game through suspension.
The visitors, on the other hand, defeated Darmstadt 1-0 in the relegation six-pointer, but given their poor away record, anything but a routine home win would be a big surprise. You should know that Union Berlin have already suffered seven defeats on the road this term. All Kevin Behrens, Jerome Roussillon, Kevin Volland, and Josip Juranovic should miss out with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Dani Olmo):
After starting his youth career at Espanyol, Dani Olmo moved to fellow Catalan side Barcelona in 2007 at the age of nine. The Spanish player born in Terrasa on May 7, 1998 then moved to Dinamo Zagreb, where he established himself as a first-team regular.
Dani Olmo was on the verge of leaving the Croatian club in the summer of 2019, but he eventually stayed at Stadion Maksimir. Olmo is one of the most talented footballers in Spain and he helped the U21 team clinch the Euro 2019 trophy. La Furia Roja defeated Germany in the final of the tournament, with Olmo being named Man of the match.
The Spanish attacking midfielder, who is used as a winger as well, was named the Croatian First Football League player of the year for 2018. His preferred foot is right and he has a contract with Dinamo Zagreb until June 30, 2021.
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.
