Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After suffering a 1-0 loss at Wolfsburg, Union Berlin will be aiming to return to winning ways in Bundesliga when they take on Stuttgart in the Bundesliga round 26. The capital club produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and, it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s clash. Both Keita Endo and Andras Schafer are out of contention with injuries, while Pawel Wszolek is a major doubt following his recent positive test for coronavirus.
Die Schwaben, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Borussia M’gladbach 3-2 in their last league match to move away from the rock bottom. Stuttgart, though, are not regarded as good travelers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Union Berlin’s party at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei. All Pascal Stenzel, Silas Katompa Mvumpa, Jordan Meyer, Nikolas Nartey, and Mohamed Sankoh are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
