Union Berlin vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on Saturday, 27 June 2020. Kick off 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
Flingeraner can hope for at best a finish in the 16th spot of the table, and that means they will have to go through the relegation play-offs in order to extend their stay in the top flight. However, if they go on to lose this upcoming game, and Bremen manages to win theirs, the former will get the boot.
To avoid such a fate, Flingeraner will have to at least secure a draw this weekend, and hope that Bremen do not win by a margin of five goals; or Uwe Rosler’s men will have to win this fixture, and leave nothing else to chance.
The Iron Ones meanwhile will count themselves lucky for having ensured their safety early enough. Considering the desperation of Flingeraner, and their recent h2h record, coupled with the relaxed mindset of the Iron Ones – it seems as if Dusseldorf will secure a much-needed win.
Union Berlin vs Dusseldorf: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Flingeraner won the reverse fixture, with a 2-1 scoreline at home.
- Six of the preceding nine wins had gone to the same team as well.
- Nine of the former twelve fixtures had goals from both teams.
- Since 2011, not once have the guests failed to score at this venue.
- In the past ten years, only twice have the home team recorded wins at this stadium.
Union Berlin vs Dusseldorf: Prediction
The Iron Ones lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Hoffenheim. The fact that their safety was almost ensured should have reduced intensity for the guests, that they were trailing by three goals even before half time.
Meanwhile, Flingeraner recorded a 1-1 draw at home the prior match-day, against Augsburg. Both goals had come in the first half itself, and though the hosts tried their best to slot in the winner, the opposing defense held strong.
As things stand, Flingeraner have the upper hand – and the major reason for this would be their desperation to avoid relegation. The fact that the Iron Ones are already safe will further increase the chances of Flingeraner, as the hosts of the day have no incentive to fight hard.
Moreover, Flingeraner had won the reverse fixture, and they had recorded three of the prior four h2h wins as well. In addition, at this venue, they have been on a scoring streak since 2011, and have lost just twice here this whole decade.
Furthermore, the Iron Ones were winless in nine of their prior eleven overall match-ups, and the sole two wins had come against teams placed lower than them. Considering all these stats, it’s deduced that Dusseldorf will post the victory this Saturday.
