RB Leipzig vs Union Berlin Prediction

RB Leipzig pulled off what was their eleventh win of the season by taking down Augsburg at home with a 3-1 scoreline in their last clash. The hosts were surprisingly trailing 1-0 at the break, in that latter matchup, after their counterparts broke the deadlock eight minutes into the first half.

However, the home team mustered a stellar comeback post the restart, and slotted three goals past their foes to come away with the win.

As of now, RB Leipzig are unbeaten in their last ten games in all competitions and have not stumbled since their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Freiburg, way back in October.

Meanwhile, Union Berlin are going through a rough patch at the moment. Miserably, they have tasted success just once in their past five games in the running and are currently sporting a dismal two-match losing streak as well.

Furthermore, the newly-promoted side have picked up a win in just one of their previous eight trips on the road in the top flight. With RB Leipzig securing the bragging rights by no less than a two-goal margin or more in each of their past four games here, nothing short of a miracle can save Union Berlin from a defeat this weekend.

In addition, RB Leipzig have not been shy in flaunting their scoring boots. They have netted twenty-three goals at home so far, which is the third-highest tally by any side in the cluster.

Moreover, all of their previous three h2h meetings here have also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts. As such, expect no dearth of goals in this one.
