Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Sunday’s football game between Union Berlin and Leipzig will close round 3 of the new Bundesliga campaign. The capital club aim to extend their winning run in all competitions to four games and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Kevin Behrens, who has already netted four goals so far this term. Brenden Aaronson is banned for the match following his sending-off in the 4-1 win over Darmstadt.
The Red Bulls, on the other hand, produced a splendid display in a 5-1 crushing of Stuttgart, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on both teams to score. Union Berlin defenders should have Lois Openda at bay as the Belgium forward has already started paying off. The likes of Peter Gulacsi, Caden Clark, Amadou Haidara, and Andre Silva are out of contention with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Timo Werner):
Timo Werner is a German starlet, who began his senior career at Vfb Stuttgart. The German forward, who was born in Stuttgart on March 6, 1996, scored 13 goals in 95 appearances in the league for Die Schwaben and in 2016 he moved to fellow Bundesliga side Leipzig and he impressed with the Red Bulls in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign, scoring 21 goals in the process.
To make things even better for the talented attacker, he represented Germany at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and it has to be noted that he provided an assist for Lars Stindl in the title game. Despite the fact that coach Joachim Low rested star players at the tournament in Russia, the Germans eventually won the trophy.
Timo Werner played for the Germany U17 team as well and he won the silver medal with die Mannschaft at the 2012 UEFA European Championship. His main position is centre forward, but he is used as a winger as well. Timo Werner’s contract with Leipzig should expire on June 30, 2020.
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.
