Union Berlin vs Jahn Regensburg
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 12th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Berlin).
Union is chasing Hamburger for their direct-promotion spot to the Bundesliga but failed to capitalize on the bad run by the latter in the last three games. While Hamburger could return just a single point from their last three outings, Berlin could just match the effort.
Union is three points away as of now, and with Hamburger going against Koln, the absolute best team in the league, this is the biggest opportunity for Berlin to make strides towards their Bundesliga dream.
Regensburg is a formidable team, but their weak h2h history against this opponent will hurt them this Friday. The fact that they are on the road will also act counterproductively to their objectives.

Union Berlin vs Jahn Regensburg Prediction
Berlin has been playing a cat and mouse game with Hamburger for quite some time now. The former wants to take hold of the direct-promotion spot currently in possession of HSV. This week, Union has been provided with the greatest opportunity to make a movement in the right direction. While the best team in the league is taking on Hamburger, Union has been allotted a home tie against Regensburg, against whom they have been unbeaten for the last 15 years.
In addition, Berlin is also totally unbeaten at home against this team. Also, impressively, Union has found the back of the net in 100% of h2h ties, and at home, they have done so twice or more in every attempt bar one.
Finally, Regensburg was winless in five of their last seven away ties, whereas Union was unbeaten in 20 of their last 23 home ties. Count on Union to take advantage of their home status, and if you are still not convinced, take into account that, except for two games, Berlin has recorded two or more goals against Regensburg in every appearance.
