Union Berlin vs Arminia Bielefeld
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 22nd February 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Berlin).
The battle at the top between Union Berlin and Hamburger has been producing sparks. While the former is frighteningly superior at home, the other one finds pride in their spectacular set of away results.
Coming to this tie, the team from Berlin is provided their favorite setting, and considering the four-point deficit that has come between their nearest rival, the team will be particular to make it big in this tie.
Bielefeld has been having a good couple of weeks on the road, but the asterisk is that either of these wins came against teams that were not that distinctly strong at home.
The case is entirely different in this case and surely they will fancy their chances on account of their confidence being high, but deep down, they might be getting ready for a reality check.

Union Berlin vs Arminia Bielefeld Prediction
The dominance at home, that Union has had in this year’s competition is clearly over the top. They have not lost a single home tie this season and dropped points only thrice in total. Even better has been their defensive stats at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei. The squad has conceded just five goals in the whole of 2018/19 2.Bundesliga so far. Not even a single group other than them has even managed to keep it below double digits.
Such has been the level of their superiority, that in the last 23 home-ties, they have lost just three times, and all three came in friendlies. Their form at home also extends to head-to-head games, with them maintaining a 100% unbeaten record all through their history, and a 100% winning record if not for just three draws.
Arminia, who were winless in six of their last ten matches on the road, even with three friendlies in the mix, is frankly no match at all for their counterparts. Expect a convincing win by the hosts, where their impressive backline will ensure that the first goal of the match will be coming at the opposite end.
