Union Berlin vs Hoffenheim
Date: 21 January 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Forsterei (Berlin).
Both Union Berlin and Hoffenheim have been struggling badly to find the right rhythm in November.
Union Berlin went to the World Cup break with a run of two losses and a draw in the last three Bundesliga matches.
They have conceded as many as eleven goals in the process, a run involving a 5-0 loss at Bayer Leverkusen and a 4-1 slide at Freiburg.
However, Urs Fischer’s men still hold the fifth position in the league table, mainly thanks to an impressive home record.
Union Berlin won five and drew two of seven league outings at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei this term.
They have also managed to boost up the confidence by managing a streak of five wins in the mid-season friendlies.
They have notched seven goals in the drubbings of Augsburg and Zilina in the previous two tests.
We thus have reasons to fancy Union Berlin on Saturday afternoon against Hoffenheim who have also gone to the World Cup break in horrendous spirits.
Andre Breitenreiter’s men claimed just one point in the previous five league outings. They have dropped into the bottom half of the standings as a consequence.
The lack of defensive meticulousness has been the main issue for this team over the last several years and this season is by no means an exception.

- The outfits have two wins, draws, and defeats each in the previous six head to head encounters.
