Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 12 December 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
The Bavarians are the defending champions of the competition, and by all means the best team in the world at the moment. They are at the top of the table once again, and are determined to repeat their feats of last year.
Meanwhile, the Iron Ones are comparatively newcomers to this competition, and are still getting used to the hardships here. They may have had a satisfactory run in the recent weeks, but that was predominantly due to them being pitted against some of the weakest teams in the competition.
This week, they are locking horns with none other than Hans-Dieter Flick’s men, and even a draw would be considered a miracle.
Urs Fischer’s men also have a terrible h2h record against this opponent in the past two decades, and this further reduces their chances this weekend.
By all means, expect Bayern Munich to dominate proceedings from the get-go at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had taken place in May of 2020. Then, the title-holders recorded a 0-2 win at this same venue.
- They have a 100% winning record in the 21st century.

Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
The Iron Ones lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against Hertha Berlin. In the meantime, Flick’s men were held to a 3-3 draw at home by Leipzig.
Going on, the Bavarians were unbeaten in 44 of their previous 45 overall matches, and impressively 40 of these were wins. They have also been scoring goals for fun against any team they were unlucky to face them, and by all indications, they are on course to secure a second treble in succession.
They have also secured their knockout entry into the CL, and could concentrate more in the league now, before the European games resume in 2021.
Meanwhile, Fischer’s men were promoted to the competition just recently, and they also have a 100% losing record in h2h encounters. They also have conceded two or more goals in every single meeting against Flick’s men this century.
By all means, expect another routine Bayern Munich win.
