Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Following a heavy 4-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen, Union Berlin will be aiming to escape the relegation zone when they take on Augsburg on Matchday 12. Towering Italian defender Leonardo Bonucci has joined the likes of Josip Juranovic, Danilho Doekhi, and Andras Schafer in the recovery room, while midfielder Rani Khedira misses out through suspension.
The Bavarians, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous four league matches, with the team climbing to top ten in the standings. Union Berlin, though, want this win more than Augsburg, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the capital club. As for the visiting side, all Niklas Dorsch, Sven Michel, David Colina, Arne Maier, Frederik Winther, and Raphael Framberger are out of contention with injuries, while midfielder Masaya Okugawa is a major doubt. Defender Reece Oxford has been infected by COVID-19.
