Union Berlin will face a final home fixture of the season on Saturday, as they must claim victory to secure their spot in next season’s Champions League. Werder Bremen will be the visitors to the capital after failing to win in their previous four matches.
A historic moment could await Union Berlin on Saturday, as they look to secure their first ever appearance in the Champions League group stages. However, there will be pressure on the hosts this weekend, as their spot in the top-four is still far from assured. Berlin will need to claim maximum points to avoid a nervy wait for the final score in the Freiburg fixture.
Union’s recent form would be a slight concern coming into this weekend, as they have landed just one victory in their previous four league matches. They have also lost twice across their previous three, with their most recent defeat coming on the road last weekend. Union will certainly need to improve after being beaten 4-2 in a chaotic match against Hoffenheim last Saturday.
Werder Bremen will be the final visitors to Berlin this season, as they look for a first win in four league matches. They can’t finish any higher than 12th in the standings, but they could drop down to 14th in the standings if they aren’t able to claim maximum points this weekend.
Werder were at least able to end a three-game losing run in their previous league match, as they played out a 1-1 draw against FC Köln. Werder ended the game in a decent fashion, with their equalising goal being netted by Romano Schmid with just under 20 minutes remaining.
Union Berlin vs Werder Bremen Head to Head
Union has an excellent record against Werder, as they have won each of their last four fixtures. That includes a 3-1 win in this exact fixture last season. Interestingly, both teams have scored in three of the five meetings between the sides in the Bundesliga.
Union Berlin vs Werder Bremen Prediction
The stakes will be huge for Union this weekend, but their excellent record at home could be a decisive factor. Therefore, we will be siding with Union to secure their place in the Champions League with victory against Werder.
