The game of the weekend in the Bundesliga comes from Red Bull Arena on Saturday, as two of the top four teams clash. Union Berlin will be looking to record a fifth straight success, while RB Leipzig will be hoping to bounce back after being held last weekend.
There will be a huge fixture at Red Bull Arena on Saturday, as two of the title contenders at this early stage lock horns. RB Leipzig will have home advantage, as they look to recover after being held last weekend. Given the close nature at the top of the standings, that saw Leipzig drop to fourth, with all the sides around them picking up victories. However, they remain just four points off the top of the standings.
Leipzig has picked up three wins from their previous five games, but that is the fewest of any side below Bayern in the top four over the same period. The hosts this weekend would have been disappointed with their performance in their previous fixture, as they couldn’t find a way through against FC Köln, and eventually were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw. Leipzig managed just two shots on target in that fixture.
Union Berlin’s dream of a Bundesliga title this term remains alive, as they sit second in the standings, and are just one point behind Bayern Munich. Union has won each of their previous four fixtures in the Bundesliga, and they are four points clear of fifth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt.
Union’s story has been a narrative throughout this campaign, and if they are able to achieve Champions League qualification it will be one of the best modern day stories in German football. They maintained their excellent form last weekend with a late winner to seal a thrilling 2-1 victory over Mainz.
RB Leipzig vs Union Berlin Head to Head
Union Berlin’s record in this fixture is extremely impressive. They have won each of their previous four fixtures against Leipzig, which includes a 2-1 win at Red Bull Arena last term. All four wins over that period have been secured by the same scoreline, including their success back in August.
RB Leipzig vs Union Berlin Prediction
This will be an exciting fixture in the Bundesliga this weekend, and it could have huge ramifications on the title race. However, Union’s record against Leipzig is incredibly hard to ignore, and for that reason, we give them the nod to pick up the victory on Saturday.
