Union Berlin vs Hoffenheim Prediction
Union Berlin’s recent run of good form over their last eight Bundesliga matches shows a promising side for the host.
The recent 1-1 draw with Paderbon on the road has marked the fourth unbeaten game in the last five matches. Also, it has taken them to within five points of the European qualification places.
However, they are strong at home. Evidently, across their five most recent victories overall, four came with a clean sheet, including their last two at home.
Hence, Union Berlin will be a tough contingent to defeat at home.
Meanwhile, Augsburg’s recent visit to Hoffenheim has left them with their third loss in their last five fixtures.
Moreover, the visitor will be traveling on the road with their previous trip on the road giving a 3-1 defeat to the likes of RB Leipzig.
Other than that, Hoffenheim was unbeaten in the four away games before that loss. So, we can expect a close encounter at Berlin.
Despite being the promoted team in the mix from the lower tier after 10 years, Union Berlin has shown better composure compared to the experienced teams in the campaign.
So, we can cut on the host to perform well. Since the guest is also strong in the contest, they cannot be ruled out too. Hence, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game.
Apart from that, Union Berlin has scored only 19 goals in 15 games. Meanwhile, Hoffenheim has slotted in 21 goals in the same period.
Even so, the host has conceded only 9 of their 20 overall conceded goals at home. So, we can expect the home team defenders to keep the visitors at bay.
So, there is a chance of a low scoring affair not more than 3.5 goals in ninety minutes.
