German Bundesliga
Date: 11 February 2023, Saturday

Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).

RB Leipzig host Union Berlin in a big six-pointer in the battle for the top-four finish in the elite class of German football on Saturday afternoon at Red Bull Arena.

Leipzig dropped the ball seven days ago at FC Koln, failing to break the deadlock in a tight goalless draw at RheinEnergieStadion.

Marco Rose’s men won seven and drew two of nine Bundesliga outings on the home patch this term, with a 22-7 goal difference en route.

They have also won three and drawn one of the last four matches in all competitions going into this affair.

Union Berlin, on the other side, head into this with five wins on the bounce across competitions. They found a way to dispatch Mainz seven days ago thanks to a late goal from Jordan Siebatcheu.
