Market: Both teams to score
Chances: 8/11 @ BetUS
Sunday afternoon at the An der Alten Forsterei Stadium at the An der Alten Forsterei could prove to be an action-packed RB Leipzig take a trip to the Union Berlin.
Starting with the hosts making history last season when they achieved a famous top four finish, Union Berlin is certainly gaining an incredible wave of momentum. Opening the 2023/24 season with a convincing 4-1 home win over Mainz, Urs Fischer’s men quickly established themselves as one of Germany’s elite teams. They were last seen in the heavyweight division with another 4-1 victory away at Darmstadt, and the Irons Ones will be looking to make another statement this weekend. Having completed pre-season by beating Italian giants Atalanta in four games, Berlin have earned a fearsome reputation for their scoring performances in the final third. Having scored a staggering 16 goals in just four previous matches in all formats, Fischer’s team also continues to shine on home soil. In fact, the Sunday hosts have not suffered a Bundesliga defeat at the An der Alten Forsterei stadium in the past 18 months. It should also be emphasized that, since last season, Union have seen four of their previous five top-flight matches end with both teams scoring goals.
On the away side, while RB Leipzig could have started the 2023/24 season with a spectacular 3-2 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen, the Red Bulls definitely came back with a roar last weekend. Finally returning to home soil as they made their way to a 5-1 win against Stuttgart, Marco Rose’s side this time set their sights on a real Bundesliga title. Having ended last season with a win in each of his last five top-flight meetings, the former Borussia Dortmund manager is now urging his team to find much-needed defensive resolve. Having failed to get a clean sheet in the Bundesliga from their previous five attempts, neutral players can enjoy another thriller this weekend at the An der Alten Forsterei. Having suffered a 2-1 defeat when they last met an opponent on Sunday 11 February, it should also be emphasized that each of their previous four Bundesliga meetings ended with both teams scoring on the scoresheet. This is a competition that is known to offer a number of chances and here we expect a similar outcome.
