Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Union Berlin will look to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Leipzig and Wolfsburg when they take on Hoffenheim on Saturday afternoon. The capital club are eyeing their second home win of the process and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Hoffenheim. Experienced forward Kevin Volland is banned for the match, while all Laurenz Dehl, Andras Schafer, and Rani Khedira are out of contention with injuries, but Urs Fischer can count on key players for Saturday’s encounter.
The visitors, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win and given their signs of improvement in front of goal, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. Both Marco John and Dennis Geiger are injured for the visiting side, while Bambase Conte remains on the sidelines due to the lack of fitness.
Highlighted Player (Pavel Kaderabek):
Pavel Kaderabek is a Czech Republic defender born on 25 April 1992, who has enjoyed a bright start to his professional career. Coming through the youth ranks at Sparta Prague and gaining some first team experience during a loan spell with Viktoria Zizkov, the right-sided defender was finally able to show what he is capable of during the 2012/2013 season and he didn’t need a lot of time to make the next step in his career.
After scoring impressive 10 goals in 76 league appearances for Sparta Prague, Kaderabek joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, shortly after he had established himself as a starting right-back in the Czech Republic national team.
The talented footballer helped Repre make it to the Euro 2016 finals by starting 9 qualifying matches, once again proving his killer instinct by scoring two goals. Pavel Kaderabek looks set to become one of leading players of the new generation and a big club move may not be far away either.
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.
