Union Berlin’s unbeaten run finally ended as they lost to Eintracht Frankfurt at the beginning of this month. However, they are still at the top of the table. They will travel to Mercedes-Benz Arena this Sunday to play against VfB Stuttgart.
The host are struggling this season as they are yet to win a single game so far. In their last league outing, they lost to Wolfsburg by 3-2. The team is now on a two-game losing streak.
However, it needs to be mentioned that they managed to hold defending Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich by 2-2 roughly one month ago. Yet Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side could not make further progress since then. The team is currently in the relegation zone.

Nevertheless, we can expect the visitors to win comfortably as the host have not won any game in the league so far.
