Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Union Berlin and Borussia M’gladbach face each other at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Union Berlin have been playing above expectations in the 2020/21 Bundesliga season, with the team beating both Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund at home, while sharing the spoils with Bayern Munchen.
The capital club aim to claim yet another major scalp in the German top flight, and even though they head into the match following back-to-back away defeats to Leipzig and Augsburg, we are tempted to put our money on the home team. Die Fohlen outplayed Borussia Dortmund 4-2 on home soil at the weekend, but given their anything but good away record, we are tempted to put our money on draw. In their last meeting in the Bundesliga the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
