Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Stadion An der Alten Forsterei will host Sunday’s football game between Union Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt, the two teams who are eyeing a spot in European competitions. Union Berlin suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous four league fixtures, but they are surely capable of matching die Adler in front of home fans. Niko Giesselmann faces race against the clock to bet fit for the match, while all Danilho Doekhi, Rani Khedira, and Andras Schafer are sidelined with injuries.
Frankfurt, on the other hand, are eager to stay in top six, but beating Union Berlin in the German capital is easier said than done. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the horizon. Sebastian Rode is banned for the match, while all Djibril Sow, Ansgar Knauff, Jesper Lindstrom, and Eric Ebimbe miss out with injuries.
