Wolfsburg vs Union Berlin Prediction
Olivier Glasner’s men are showing no signs of slowing down in their domestic campaign and are currently the only other team apart from the reigning champions to remain unbeaten. The hosts have not tasted defeat in any of their last nine games in all competitions either, and have picked up the win in four of those matchups as well.
On the other hand, the stunning 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund at home remains Union Berlin’s only win in the top flight. The Bundesliga debutants have been hit by a sharp decline in form at the moment as well and will be making the trip to the Volkswagen Arena on the back of a dismal three-match losing streak.
Their previous clash at home saw Frankfurt edge past them with a narrow 2-1 scorecard. While on the road, Leverkusen took them out with two unanswered goals to their name. The away side’s lack of experience in playing first division football is certainly reflected in the outcome of their results.
Union Berlin have garnered no more than four points from a possible eighteen. They are as of now eight points behind the hosts on the ladder. Furthermore, Wolfsburg are unbeaten at home in their last three Bundesliga games.
Taking into account the away side’s poor form on the road, and the dismal streak they are on right now, it goes without saying that Union Berlin poses little or no threat to the hosts in this one.
Additionally, the home team have not been keen on racking up the goals tally in their clashes here. Also, their counterparts have been better defensively on the road, and have conceded just thrice in their outings.
Given that the hosts have netted just four times at home in the Bundesliga this season as well, expect Wolfsburg to secure all three points with no more than two goals at the most.
