Union Berlin vs Wolfsburg Prediction & Analysis
Wolfsburg started off the season brilliantly with 4 straight wins however, things have gone downhill for them since then as they have gone on a 3 match run without a win to their name.
Their last 2 results were 3-1 losses suffered at the hands of Hoffenheim and Borussia Monchengladbach, teams who finished lower than them in the last season.
Seven matches into the season with 4 wins and a loss, they sit in 4th position in the league with 13 points to their tally, 3 points behind leaders Bayern Munich. They seem to have no issues playing away from home as they have just 1 loss away from the Volkswagen Arena in their last 5 games.
The Lower Saxony club has scored the fewest goals for any team within the top 8 in the league table and has failed to find the back of the net more than twice in a game this season. With 2 draws in the Champions League this season they are sitting in 3rd position in their group.
Union Berlin on the other hand has just one loss all season in the Bundesliga. All of their victories have come by a winning margin of 1 goal, this along with their goal difference, shows their ability to defend a low scoreline despite not scoring very often.
They have managed to stay competitive in the Conference League as well, a competition they qualified for thanks to their 7th place finish last season. This is their first Continental competition in about 19 years. They currently sit in 3rd position in the competition with a win and a loss to their name.
In the Bundesliga with 3 wins and 3 draws they sit in 7th position with 12 points to their tally. The Iron Union are undefeated in the league so far at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.
After a dream start to the season, Wolfsburg seems to have lost their flow, and are struggling defensively, with such a form they are unlikely to register their first league win at this venue.
Despite not dominating the games this season Urs Fischer’s men have got the job done having lost just a league match this season and none at home. It is unlikely they lose against an out of form Wolfsburg.
We are backing Union Berlin to emerge victorious however, a double chance for them is a safer option, while a profitable option is backing Taiwo Awoniyi to score.
