Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).

Union Berlin climbed up to the fourth position in the 2. Bundesliga ladder after an impressive run of form over the last couple of weeks.

Can they prove the quality and cause the damage to a strong elite class opposition away from home on Tuesday when they play Bayer Leverkusen in the second round of DFB Pokal?

Bayer Leverkusen

Heiko Herrlich’s men started the new league campaign in a slower fashion, but they seem to have finally found the wanted shape.

Die Werkself confirmed a fantastic attacking shape by netting as many as five goals in the second half of the weekend’s drubbing of Borussia M’Gladbach.

Union Berlin

Die Eisernen have also been super inspired in the final third lately and they will come into this on the back of an important 3.1 victory over Greuther Furth in front of their fans.

The team led by Jens Keller has thus made it four wins on the trot in 2. Bundesliga netting at least two goals in each of the fixtures along the way.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Union Berlin: Prediction

Bayer may be massive favourite according to the bookies, but we don’t quite expect it to be entirely a one-way street given Berlin’s fine run in the recent period.

From the betting perspective, backing goals has to be the way to go.
