RB Leipzig vs Union Berlin
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 20 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
The Red Bulls are one of the best teams in the competition, and currently the only one that could even give a meaningful chase to outright toppers and defending champions Bayern Munich.
However, Julian Nagelsmann’s men are going through a struggling stretch at the moment, and they have dropped points in their last two games. And this has led to the Bavarians pulling ahead.
Something needs to be done if the Bulls are serious about their title aspirations. Moreover, they also require a huge win to get their confidence back.
Going on, despite their problems at the moment, they have had a phenomenal season so far at home, and more importantly, they have a superb h2h record against this rival over the years.
Meanwhile, counterparts the Iron Ones have also been inconsistent all throughout this campaign – and especially so on the road.
As such, expect Leipzig to emerge victorious this Wednesday.
Leipzig vs Union Berlin: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nagelsmann’s men are on a three-match winning run.
- The last they lost against this rival was back in 2014.
- They had scored a total of ten goals from the preceding three encounters.

Leipzig vs Union Berlin Prediction
The Red Bulls were held to a 2-2 draw the last match-day on the road by Wolfsburg. In the meantime, Urs Fischer’s men recorded a 1-0 win at home the past game week, against Leverkusen.
Going on, Nagelsmann’s men were unbeaten in 13 of their preceding 15 overall matches, and they had won nine of their former eleven appearances at home. Note that they had also scored two or more goals in nine of their past eleven home game as well.
On top of that, they have a 100% winning record in h2h meetings over the years at this venue, and have scored two or more goals in all these fixtures.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in six of their last nine overall matches, and they remained so in 13 of their preceding 18 road trips.
Considering these observations, expect Leipzig to deliver a commendable win this Wednesday.
