Preview: Both these teams will have spent the week leading up to Friday’s Stadion An der Alten Forsterei contest dusting themselves down following losing efforts last time out. Yet it is the visitors who are the favourites to clinch what would be a first away win of the campaign, despite succumbing to a 2-1 defeat in the German capital last season.

Union Berlin – Another European title on the cards?

A first for Union Berlin, who go into Matchday 14’s home encounter better off in the Bundesliga standings than their upcoming opponents for the very first time. Urs Fischer’s side sit sixth through thirteen rounds (W5 D5 L3), two points off Champions League qualification and as many points clear of an RB Leipzig outfit coming off a lengthy nine-game winless stretch in Bundesliga away games.

Conversely, the Berliners have been formidable on their own patch for some considerable period. Champions Bayern the only one of their previous 23 visitors to Stadion an der Altern Forsterei to depart having earned all three points (W12 D10). Union’s record at home this season reads W4 D2 L1, which is no mean feat bearing in mind Gladbach, Leverkusen and Wolfsburg were among those denied victory.

Key Stat: Sunday’s cruel loss in Frankfurt, falling 2-1 after conceding in the 95th minute, means that Union Berlin have won once (2-0 at home vs Hertha Berlin) in their past five Bundesliga matches (D2 L2).


Union Berlin WIN TO NIL



RB Leipzig – First away win to remain elusive?

Having lost Sunday’s mouthwatering clash at Red Bull Arena against fellow European hopefuls Bayer Leverkusen 3-1, Jesse Marsch knows only too well that his struggling charges are in urgent need of a positive outcome in Berlin. For this is already the club’s worst ever start to a Bundesliga campaign. Their tally of 18 points is at least seven fewer than at this same stage in all five prior seasons at this level.

Alarmingly, the American has had no joy taking this team on the road. Die Rotten Bullen are among five teams still to register a maiden away win this term (D3 L3), thus extending the club’s record winless run away from home to nine. Meanwhile, there is the very real prospect of them losing three Bundesliga matches consecutively for the first time as well, having lost 2-0 at Hoffenheim before finding Leverkusen too hot.

Key Stat: Just 3 of the 24 Bundesliga goals RB Leipzig have scored this season came in away fixtures. Die Rotten Bullen are yet to score more than once on their travels, failing to do so at all in precisely half of these matches (three of six).

Union Berlin Vs RB Leipzig Betting Advice

There is simply no way RB Leipzig should be odds-on for the victory. Last season’s Bundesliga runners-up are a long way off the standards set last time, sitting eighth ahead of getting Matchday 14 underway in the German capital. That is two positions and as many points worse off than Friday’s hosts, a Union Berlin side going through a slight wobble (W1 D2 L2) but are among the toughest of nuts to crack at home.


Union Berlin Vs RB Leipzig – Key Facts:

  • For the very first time in Bundesliga history, Union Berlin face RB Leipzig with the former higher up in the standings (sixth vs eighth) despite scoring fewer and conceding more.
  • Union Berlin have managed to avoid losing 22 of their previous 23 Bundesliga home games (W12 D10). Conversely, RB Leipzig are winless in nine Bundesliga away games (D3 L6).
  • Four of the past five visiting teams were unsuccessful in even scoring past Union Berlin (W3 D1 L1). RB Leipzig, meanwhile, are averaging 0.5 goals per away game in 2021-22.


As well as RB Leipzig failing to win any of six away league games so far this term (D3 L3), Union Berlin have lost one single Bundesliga home game in their last 23 (W12 D10). That was to Bayern Munich, showing plenty of fighting spirit in a 5-2 reverse last month. Moreover, Bayern remain the only one of the past five visitors to this ground to score, emphasising the task at hand for an RB side boasting just three away goals all season.
