Freiburg vs Union Berlin
Date: 7 May 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Europa-Park Stadion (Freiburg im Breisgau).
A real buzz is expected in and around Europa-Park Stadion on Saturday afternoon when Freiburg are set to host Union Berlin on their farewell from the home stadium for this term of Bundesliga.
Freiburg are definitely the most pleasant surprise in this season of the German top flight. The team with a relatively modest budget broke into the top-four in the Bundesliga table after a huge 3-4 victory over Hoffenheim last weekend away in Sinsheim.
Christian Streich thus took advantage of RB Leipzig’s back-to-back defeats in the previous two rounds to go one point clear off them in the fourth place of the standings.
On top of this, Freiburg will play the DFB Pokal final against RB Leipzig the week after the end of the regular season in the league.
The win at Hoffenheim was the fourth in the previous five matches across competitions for Streich and his troops.
They have been scoring goals for fun lately, netting three or more goals in each of the last four games in all competitions.
We have reasons to expect them to maintain such a scintillating run on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Union Berlin in Matchday No 33.
Union Berlin can still get involved in the battle for the UEFA Europa League places being just one point shy of sixth-placed FC Koln at the moment.
However, they will travel to Europa-Park Stadion in low spirits after clinching just a single point in the 1-1 draw to the rock-bottomed Greuther Furth last Friday.

Freiburg vs Union Berlin Prediction
Freiburg are flying high with four wins and a draw in the previous five matches in all competitions. Union Berlin, on the other side, lost five of their last seven away fixtures across competitions.
