Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Wolfsburg and Union Berlin take on each other at Volkswagen Arena in what is expected to be a very exciting Bundesliga game. The Wolves aim to move one step closer to booking their place in the Champions League, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the capital club. All Pongracic, Bialek, and Steffen are likely to miss the game through injuries for the home team. You should bear in mind that Wolfsburg are eyeing their tenth home win of the season.
Union Berlin, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Werder Bremen. The capital club are four points behind the Conference League berth, but seeing that Urs Fischer’s troops are not regarded as good travellers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Wolves. The likes of Kruse, Teuchert, Dajaku, Awoniyi, Becker, and Ujah are out of contention for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Admir Mehmedi):
Born in FYR Macedonia, Admir Mehmedi moved to Switzerland with his parents at the age of 2, and no wonder he decided to represent the Rossocrociati at international level. The forward made a name for himself at FC Zurich, scoring 19 goals in 84 league outings to catch the eye of bigger clubs.
Mehmedi surprisingly opted to join Dynamo Kiev in January 2012, but he would soon leave war-torn Ukraine, signing a permanent deal with Bundesliga outfit Freiburg after impressing while on season-long loan. As Freiburg got relegated to the second division, the forward was given a chance to remain in the top flight by Bayer Leverkusen, and he grabbed it with both hands despite knowing that it would not be easy for him to secure regular playing time.
In spite of the lack of first team action at Bay Arena, Mehmedi remained a part of the Switzerland national team, mostly due to his versatility and being able to operate on either wing or as second striker. He has so far made over 40 outings for Nati, making four appearances and scoring one goal at the 2014 World Cup.
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.
