Union Berlin vs Bochum
German Bundesliga
Date: 14 May 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Forsterei (Berlin).

Both Union Berlin and Bochum will enter their head to head clash on the final day of the 2021/22 Bundesliga season in the highest of spirits following their respective recent wins.

Union Berlin stunned Champions League hopefuls Freiburg 1-4 on the road to make a massive step towatrds securing the UEFSA Europa League football for themselves next season.

The team led by Swiss manager Urs Fischer jumped above FC Koln in the sixth place of the Bundesliga standings by netting four goals last weekend at Europa-Park Stadion.

They are now two points above the Billy Goats in the league ladder and a win here against Bochum would secure them the appearance in the Europa League group phase next year.

Union Berlin failed to find the way out of the group stage in Europa Conference League this season (in the group with Feyenoord, Maccabi Haifa, and Slavia Prague).

They will certainly be highly motivated to get a result here against Bochum and make a step forward by qualifying or the second-best continental competition next year.

Nevertheless, claiming the spoils against Bochum will be anything but an easy task since the visitors will enter this match on the back of successive league wins over the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Arminia Bielefeld in the previous couple of games.

Bochum have scored six goals in the process. Knowing they also failed to keep a clean sheet in the last four league matches, we have reasons to expect a high-scoring scenario when they come face to face with Union Berlin here.

Union Berlin vs Bochum Head-to-head

  • Union Berlin can rely on tradition going into this tie after winning three and drawing one of the previous four clashes against Bochum.
  • Union Berlin have been particularly dominant in the history of the clashes against Bochum in the German capital where they won eight of the last ten meetings with Die Unabsteigbaren.
  • Five of the previous seven H2H clashes between these two sides saw the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score option coming in.

Union Berlin vs Bochum Prediction

The Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score pick is well worth backing at the 2.05 odds here since both teams have been scoring goals for fun lately.

Since the match carries a bigger significance for the hosts, who have dominated the history of this matchup at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei anyways, we also like Union Berlin to Win & Both Teams To Score bet at the 2.87 odds.
