Union Berlin vs Schalke Prediction

The Iron Ones lost 4-1 on the road the last match-day, against Borussia Monchengladbach. The hosts found the back of the net early in the 17th minute itself, and added one more before the break. Later in the second half, they scored two more goals to ensure their three points. In return, the Iron Ones could score a total of just one goal.

Meanwhile, the Royal Blues lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Bremen. The winner came early in the 32nd minute itself, and the visitors showed great dedication in defending that slender lead for a long time. The home team even resorted to some very rough tactics, but it ultimately proved to be useless.

By the looks of things, we are in for a treat of goals. Just five match-days remain till the end of the season, and either squad are desperate to secure as many points as they could. Moreover, the Iron Ones are winless in their last seven overall games, and had lost five of their preceding six such fixtures.

At home, they are on a winless run of four appearances, and have had a single win here since December of 2019. Keep note that they had also conceded two or more goals in five of their last seven overall games, and did the same in five of their prior seven home fixtures.

On the other hand, the Royal Blues are on a 13-game winless run, and remained winless in eight of their last nine overall away fixtures. They had also conceded a total of nine goals from their past three road trips as well.

Taking into account these observations, it’s deduced that we are awaiting a goal-fest at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei this Sunday.
