Some of the top teams have tough encounters to wade through this weekend, and Freiburg will use this opportunity to make a pass at further improving their already impressive standing. While they are on the road this match-day, they do have the confidence of taking on a newly-promoted Union Berlin, who’s placed in the relegation zone at the moment, with losses in their preceding four league fixtures.

Union Berlin vs Freiburg Prediction

The teams come from opposite ends of the league table. Urs Fischer’s men represent the bottom-most tier of the cluster, whereas their counterparts are trying their best to make it to the pinnacle of standings. The former has just one win to their name so far, and have scored the second-least number of goals till point.

Meanwhile, Streich’s men have lost just once, and have scored the most number of goals if not for the dynamic duo of Dortmund, and Bayern.

As things stand, the upper hand goes to the guests of the day. Not only are they threatening to unsettle some of the best in the business and their top-tier prospects, but do have the experience factor in their favor too. Berlin is a new addition to this competition and is still taking baby-steps in the right direction.

At present, the Iron Ones have lost their preceding four league fixtures, and are winless in their last five. They have lost four of their past six home ties, and have conceded twice or more in all four.

On the other hand, their opposite number has just one loss to their name in their previous eleven match-ups and importantly is on a winning run of six road trips.

Taking into account these observations, count on a worthwhile performance from the guests this Friday.
