Date: Saturday, 14 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Berlin).
Union Berlin stunned the thousands of fans that were present, at this very venue, for their clash with the mighty Borussia Dortmund, as the squad managed to bring a halt to their counterparts’ formidable streak in the league. The home team slotted three goals past their foes, who were able to retaliate with no more than a single consolation goal of their own.
Werder Bremen, on the other hand, picked up the first win of their campaign with a 3-2 victory over Augsburg at home. The three points was certainly a much-needed breather for the away side who have been suffering back to back defeats right from their opener.
Nevertheless, a win for the visitors against the Bundesliga debutants will not coming easy as the hosts will be pumped from getting the better of Dortmund in their previous matchup.

Union Berlin vs Werder Bremen Prediction
The hosts have every reason to be optimistic coming into this tie as the team are currently unbeaten in their last two games. That alone does not guarantee us that Union Berlin will be able to keep a consistency in avoiding defeat though.
Furthermore, the away side will also be making the trip to Berlin on the back of a positive outcome in their most recent clash and are certainly favorites to record consecutive wins this week.
It also needs saying that Bremen have lost just two out of their last six Bundesliga games, half of which were on the road. However, taking into account Union Berlin’s recent triumph on home soil, you cannot rule out the possibility that the home team might be able to hold Werder Bremen to a draw at the most, as a win is definitely out of the equation.
Additionally, the visitors have been keen on finding the back of the net in each of their last three games so far. Considering that the hosts showed real conviction in slotting three past Dortmund in their previous clash here as well, expect neither side to walk away with a clean sheet in this one.
