The head coach Jeff Saibene can generally be thrilled with his side’s defensive displays at the start of the year since Bielefeld have kept their net untouched against both Greuther Firth and Bochum in the last couple of rounds. The third-placed Holstein Kiel is only six points away at the moment meaning that the dream about the potential promotional challenge is alive.

Can Arminia back up the fine start to the year and clinch the second subsequent victory this Monday when they host mid-table rivals Union Berlin? The visitors have had a super challenging schedule at the start of the year claiming no more than a single point in matches against the likes of Holstein Kiel and Nurnberg.

The main task for Saibene will be to stop one of league’s most dangerous strikers Sebastian Polter. The former QPR man has notched 11 goals so far in the season and he was on target two weeks ago when Die Eisernen played a 2-2 draw against Holstein Kiel.

Arminia Bielefeld vs Union Berlin: Head-to-head

The head to head stats speak in the favour of Union Berlin who have won seven and lost three games against Arminia.

Only one of these seven wins, however, came at SchucoArena where Die Arminien have been much more successful winning three and drawing three.

Four of last five H2H outings between the two teams saw both sides on the scoreline.

Arminia Bielefeld vs Union Berlin: Prediction

The hosts will likely sit at the back and carefully wait for their chances from counter attacks.

Such strategy has brought them the result away at Bochum last time out and we believe it could do the same here against Union Berlin who are yet to clinch their first win in 2018.

Since Arminia have only lost one of seven home matches against Union Berlin, we will take the home win or draw double chance at the odds of 1.50.
