Hoffenheim vs Union Berlin Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on Saturday, 20 June 2020. Kick off 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET at the PreZero Arena.
Marcel Rapp’s men are currently in possession of the final European spot, and they will even give their life to keep it safe for the remaining two game weeks. As of now, they do have a lead of one point over the eighth-placed Freiburg, but note that the Bavarians are taking on Christian Streich’s men next.
Likely, a win this weekend will in all probability confirm the participation of Rapp’s men in the next edition of the Europa League. The fact that they are taking on the Iron Ones, who were promoted to this top flight just this last summer – gives hope to fans.
Moreover, Rapp’s men have a 100% winning record against this opponent this decade, and impressively they have not conceded a single goal against them yet. Considering these stats, rightfully expect a convincing win for Hoffenheim this Saturday.
Hoffenheim vs Union Berlin: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only once have these two squads locked horns since 2010, and then Rapp’s men had recorded a 0-2 win on the road. Understand that this was the reverse fixture of this upcoming encounter, and moreover, this gives Rapp’s men a 100% winning record in h2h clashes, and a perfect defensive record as well.
Hoffenheim vs Union Berlin: Prediction
Rapp’s men recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Augsburg. After a relatively silent first half, all goals had come in the next 45 minutes.
In the meantime, the Iron Ones recorded a 1-0 win at home the past game week, against Paderborn. The sole goal of the match-up was an own goal, and the guests were easily the worst team in the whole competition by a mile.
As things stand, Rapp’s men are in urgent need of points, in order to secure their European participation. They have a golden chance coming up – as their closest as well as practically the only competitor for the said spot, are taking on Bayern Munich this game week.
As such, a win this Saturday should seal the deal for Rapp’s men. They do have a 100% winning record against the Iron Ones, and have not yet conceded a single goal from them as well. On top of that, the Iron Ones are already marked safe from relegation, and they are a new team in this league too.
Considering all these factors, it’s assumed that Hoffenheim are on course to record a win this weekend.
