Union Berlin vs Wolfsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
These two are posted fifth and sixth in the table with 24 points each, and are furiously trying to get into one of the podium spots, or at least into one of the Champions League positions.
This weekend, the fourth-placed Dortmund (who have a lead of a single point over these two teams), are pitted against the second-placed Leipzig. Thus, whoever wins at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei will have a great opportunity to improve their standing considerably.
The Iron Ones have been the better team recently in terms of results, and also only toppers and defending champions Bayern have scored more goals than them.
On top of that, the Wolves also have been struggling on the road for the past few months.
Likely, expect Union Berlin to have the upper hand this weekend.
However, note that Urs Fischer’s men were promoted to the top flight just recently, and they have a 100% winless record against this rival as well.
As such, count on Wolfsburg to score at least once this Saturday.
Union Berlin vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash had ended in a 2-2 draw.

- Three of the preceding five encounters had three or more goals.
Union Berlin vs Wolfsburg Prediction
The Iron Ones recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Bremen. In the meantime, the Wolves lost 2-0 on the road against Dortmund.
Going on, Fischer’s men were winless in 13 of their previous 15 overall match-ups, and they remained so in 14 of their former 17 appearances at home. On the other hand, their counterparts have won just against Schalke in the league since June on the road.
This also have been their only clean sheet away from home in the Bundesliga this season.
By the looks of things, expect Union Berlin to secure a win in at least one of the halves.
However, note that the Wolves had found the back of the net twice or more in six of their preceding ten match-ups, and at least once in 11 of the preceding 13 games.
And on the road, they have failed to score only against Dortmund in the league this whole season.
As such, the BTTS wager seems to be very promising this weekend.
