Union Berlin vs Ingolstadt
German 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 8 March 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Forsterei (Berlin).
Ingolstadt will continue their well congested schedule on Friday evening when they travel to the capital to take on promotional contenders in third consecutive round. They lost back-to-back fixtures to the likes of St. Pauli (4th place) and Koln (1st place) beforehand and are now set to battle the 3rd-placed Union Berlin.
However, we have to mention a huge improvement in Ingolstadt’s displays under Jens Keller who took charge in December last year. Die Schanzer actually won two on the bounce before a pair of narrow defeats to top-notch sides such as St. Pauli and Koln. Keller’s troops previously dispatched Erzgebirge Aue and Bochum netting five goals in the process. They sit second from bottom with a three-point deficit to safe-zone Magdeburg.

Union Berlin vs Ingolstadt: Prediction
Union Berlin confirmed strength with a huge 0-2 victory over 5th-placed Holstein Kiel on the road in the previous round. Die Eisernen thus won three and drew one of last four league ties and they hold the 3rd place (which leads to promotional play-offs) at the moment.
The hosts are just three points short of HSV in second and four behind section leaders Koln. They will no doubts be highly motivated to keep the fine spell of form going here against relegation strugglers Ingolstadt.
On top of this, Union Berlin have league’s best home record with 8 wins and 4 draws (no defeats) in 12 matches. They bagged 24 goals and shipped only 6 in 12 home outings this season. The home win is the only logical betting option, paid at 1.83 odds here.
