Hamburger SV vs Union Berlin Prediction

As two of the best defensive teams in the league come together, it’s pretty much self-explanatory that the game will be a low-goalscoring affair. In their combined 26 matches, both teams together conceded just a total of 20 goals. That’s an average of almost 0.75 match goals per game. The Under 2.5 match goals is a good bet.

The best team in the league and the toppers have the home advantage here. And for all their heroics, Berlin has struggled on the road this season. Hamburger holds the advantage here.
