Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Stadion An der Alten Forsterei will host Friday’s Bundesliga game between Union Berlin and Bayer Leverkusen. The capital club played out a 2-2 draw with ten-man Wolfsburg in their last league match, with the team retaining their spot in top five. Union Berlin have been performing above expectations in the first half of the season, and seeing that Bayer suffered a dip in form, we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from the match.
The good news for the hosts is that midfielder Grischa Promel returns from suspension. Bayer Leverkusen aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Bundesliga, but beating Union Berlin on the road is easier said than done. A close match is on the horizon at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
