Pick: Bayern Munich Win & Under 4.5 Goals
Odds: 8/13
Bookmaker: Betfair
(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 16 March 2022)

Preview: Marcus Ingvartsen’s late strike secured Union Berlin a famous result upon last visiting Munich, a 1-1 draw away to Bayern Munich a result to be cherished. Unfortunately, however, a repeat of that feat appear unlikely, Bayern having steamrollered the opposition in the season’s reverse outing.

Bayern Munich – Champs smarting from successive stalemates?

Julian Nagelsmann remains on course to maintain Bayern’s stranglehold of the Bundesliga championship, but what would have been a 12-point lead had they achieved victory last time out against Hoffenheim is instead four. Their 1-1 draw at PreZero Arena, coupled with Dortmund’s midweek win, has instead seen their advantage cut down considerably. The record champions will aim to put that right on Matchday 27.

That result a week ago meant a second successive 1-1 stalemate and marked the first time this season Bayern had followed one winless outing with another. They’ve not managed three of those consecutively since November 2018, which is not something Nagelsmann will be keen on replicating. In Munich, though, Bayern are 10 from 13 for wins this term, so a swift return to winning ways seems more likely than not.

Key Stat: All but one of ten Bayern Munich home league victories in 2021/22 saw Over 2.5 Goals, while half of these were despite the hosts conceding at least once.

Union Berlin – European aspirations diminishing rapidly?

Dis Eisernen’s push for a top four finish that would have seen them grace the Champions League for the very first time has stalled, and dramatically so. A return of four points from the last eighteen available has seen them fall out of the European places altogether. They’ve lost four times in this period (W1 D1), each time without scoring, and managed four goals in more than nine hours of football.

Away from home they are coming off three successive losses to nil. Which isn’t exactly the sort of momentum you want ahead of travelling to the best team in the country, arguably Europe. It took a penalty, meanwhile, for them to prise open the deadlock last time out against third-bottom Stuttgart, whose late leveller rendered a 1-1 draw more like a defeat for a Union Berlin suddenly looking bereft of confidence.

Key Stat: Union Berlin have lost more Bundesliga away games in their last three such fixtures (3) than in the ten previous away fixtures this season (W3 D4 L3).

Bayern Munich Vs Union Berlin Betting Advice

After four defeats in six games, this fixture could not have come at a worse time if you’re Union Berlin. Or could it? Bayern are enduring something of a mini wobble by their ridiculously high standards, going three consecutive Bundesliga matches scoring only once having drawn 1-1 the last twice against Hoffenheim and Leverkusen. Admittedly those were tricky encounters against sides in sixth and third respectively.


Bayern Munich Vs Union Berlin – Key Facts:

  • Last season saw Union Berlin avoid defeat home and away versus Bayern Munich. Although the record champs quickly set about changing the narrative this season, routing the capital club 5-2 in Berlin on Matchday 10.
  • Bayern will be striving to avoid a third winless Bundesliga game following successive 1-1 draws, having last gone three or more league games without winning in November 2018.
  • IIt is one clean sheet in seven league games for Bayern. However, their visitors to Allianz Arena are a Union Berlin side without a goal in three straight away matches (all losses).


The visit of Union Berlin should make for an easier assignment. The capital club are in free fall, dropping to eighth largely on account of three successive away defeats to nil. All three losses were slender in margin, though, losing 1-0 at Bielefeld and Wolfsburg and 2-0 at Augsburg. Bayern are clearly a massive step up on that opposition, but the hosts aren’t exactly firing on all cylinders. Any victory could be modest, therefore.
