Union Berlin will be hoping to keep their unlikely title dreams alive this weekend, as they bid to end a three-game winless run. However, that could be a difficult challenge away from home against a Wolfsburg side that has gone two without defeat.
It would appear as though Union Berlin’s unlikely title dreams are already over in the Bundesliga. They now sit five points off the top of the standings after going three without a win in the German division. However, they still have their hopes of a Champions League finish in their own hands, as they sit two points clear of fifth-placed Freiburg. But, they will need to get back on track if they are to finish in the top four.
Goals have been in short supply in Union’s recent domestic fixtures, as they have failed to score in their previous three Bundesliga matches. Meanwhile, they have also failed to score in four of their last five across all competitions. In last weekend’s game, they managed just two shots on target, and that was a concerning sight in their bid for a Champions League finish.
Wolfsburg will have home advantage on Sunday, as they look to enhance their own dreams of a European finish this term. They come into this fixture sitting eighth overall in the Bundesliga, but they have picked up just one win from their last five matches.
After claiming a few weeks ago, they weren’t able to record a second straight win in their most recent fixture as they played out a 2-2 home draw against Eintracht Frankfurt. It was an entertaining clash between the two sides, with all four goals being scored in the opening half. Omar Marmoush and Yannick Gerhardt scored the goals in the draw for Wolfsburg.
Wolfsburg vs Union Berlin Head to Head
Union has won two of the previous three Bundesliga matches that they have played against Wolfsburg, including a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture this term. However, each of the previous four has been won by the team playing at home, and there hasn’t been an away win in the Bundesliga.
Wolfsburg vs Union Berlin Prediction
Home advantage is key for this fixture, meaning that we will be siding with Wolfsburg to pick up the points. Union’s performance levels have also dropped with their ongoing participation in the Europa League.
