Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Stadion An der Alten Forsterei will host Saturday’s football game between Union Berlin and Wolfsburg. The capital club have been performing above expectations in the first half of the season, with the team sitting in top five ahead of Matchday 15. Union Berlin head into the match following back-to-back wins over Borussia Dortmund and Union Berlin, and we are positive that they will go for a win against Wolfsburg as well.
The Wolves, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund at the weekend, but their display in the Signal-Iduna-Park clash was anything but poor. Wolfsburg aim to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga, and seeing that boss Oliver Glasner can count on key players for Saturday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. In their last meeting in the German top flight the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
Highlighted Player (Marvin Friedrich):
Marvin Friedrich is a product of FSC Guxhagen football school. The German footballer played for the likes of OSC Vellmar, Paderborn and Schalke during his youth career as well before making his senior debut with die Knappen.
Marvin Friedrich scored 4 goals in 30 appearances for Schalke B before he started playing for the senior team. The German defender made his Bundesliga debut on September 13, 2014 in a 4-1 loss to Borussia M’gladbach. Nowadays Friedrich plays for Union Berlin as he signed a permanent deal with the Bundesliga side on July 5, 2019. His main position is centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as both left and right back as well.
Friedrich’s contract with Union Berlin expires on June 30, 2022. The versatile defender has yet to make his debut with the Germany senior team, but he has four caps with Germany U20 and three with Germany U19 respectively.
Highlighted Team (Wolfsburg):
Wolfsburg are a German football club founded in the aftermath of the World War II (1945). Die Wolfe (The Wolves) wear green and white shirts and they play their home games at Volkswagen Arena. The capacity of the stadium is 30,000 and it was opened on 13 December, 2002.
It is well known that German car manufacturer Volkswagen are the club’s main sponsors. Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga trophy in 2009 and the likes of Edin Dzeko, Grafite and Zvjezdan Misimovic were part of the club’s golden generation.
You should bear in mind that Grafite and Dzeko scored 54 goals between each other in the 2008/2009 Bundesliga campaign and that the team clinched the trophy thanks to a 5-1 win over Werder Bremen on 23 May, 2009. Die Wolfe won the German Cup trophy in 2015, with the team beating star-studded Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the title game. Wolfsburg are a team that has no bitter rivals in German football.
