Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena.
The Bavarians are on course to record a ninth straight league title, and are placed at the top of the table with a lead of seven points over the second-placed Leipzig. With just seven more match-days remaining, it seems like a healthy lead.
However, Leipzig have been adamant about putting an end to the monopoly of Hans-Dieter Flick’s men, and now they will try to capitalize on the absence of Robert Lewandowski, who has been sidelined for a month due to an injury.
The reigning champions will have to keep up the intensity, to avoid any last-minute mishaps, especially with the CL knockouts lurking around the corner.
Meanwhile, the Iron Ones are going through an inconsistent run at the moment. They have a total of just one league victory from their last five league games, and that had come against the relegation-threatened Koln.
On top of that, they have been struggling on the road for quite some time, and they also have a worrying h2h record against this foe over the years – particularly so at the Allianz Arena.
For the reasons, expect Bayern Munich to emerge victorious this Saturday.
Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Bavarians have a 100% unbeaten record against this rival in the past two decades.
- In fact, barring a single draw, they have a 100% winning record in the period.
- They have also scored two or more goals in all but one encounter.
- At this venue, the latest meeting had ended in a 2-1 win for the hosts.
Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin Prediction
Flick’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against the second-best team in the competition, Leipzig. In the meantime, Urs Fischer’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the past game week, by Hertha.
Going on, the Bavarians are on a seven-fixture winning streak, and they had also won 14 of their preceding 16 match-ups. At home, they have not lost a single appearance since June of 2020, and they had also scored a total of 18 goals from their last five games here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in ten of their past twelve overall fixtures, and they have also won just twice on the road since November of 2020.
Finally, they also have an inferior h2h record against Flick’s men over the years.
Likely, expect Bayern Munich to post the win this Saturday. And with the CL fixture against PSG looming up, the team would try to finish the job early itself.
