Jahn Regensburg vs Union Berlin
2.Bundesliga – Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 15th October 2017
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Jahnstadion (Regensburg).
Jahn Regensburg’s start to their life in the second division can be considered satisfactory with them managing 3 wins from their 9 matches so far. However, they must start to perform better if they are to remain in the same league next season as all of their remaining six games resulted in defeats.
Home results play a key role in achieving such targets and this is one of the weakest areas for Regensburg. They already lost three out of their four games at the Jahnstadion. Yet, some glimpses of quality were seen in the 2-1 win against Braunschweig, the last time they hosted a home game.
However, there is early pressure on Regensburg mainly because they are sitting with a narrow 1 point cushion above the relegation zone.
Union Berlin are promotion contenders and their start to the season is positive which has set fine platform to build up something substantial towards the first half of the season. Thet team has 15 points in their bag from 9 matches so far and are sitting at 7th in the table, which is only 4 points short of the second placed Holstein Kiel.
One of the positives for Union is their unbeaten home record. While valuable 7 points were picked from five away matches so far. If they can improve their credential on the road, we will soon see them tussling at the top three of the table.
