Union Berlin News and Form – Will Union continue their fine run of form?

Urs Fischer’s Union Berlin have responded superbly well after a slow start to their season. Since losing six of their opening nine, the Iron Ones have won five of the following eight to shoot up the table. At the time of writing, Berlin are in tenth place with 20 points to their name.

Since a run of three wins came to an at Schalke, Union Berlin have hit back with four points from their last two games. Fischer’s troops battled to a 1-1 draw with Paderborn last weekend after beating Cologne 2-0 at home.

Union have been very strong at home this season, winning five of eight. Only Borussia Monchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich have picked up more home points. Since back-to-back home losses to Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt in September, Berlin have won each of their last four at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.

Union will be gunning for a fifth successive home league victory on Tuesday. The bookies currently have them priced at 11/8.

Key-Facts – Union Berlin vs Hoffenheim

  • Hoffenheim are without a win in four
  • The pair are currently separated by just one point in the Bundesliga table


Hoffenheim News and Form – Can Schreuder’s side get back to winning ways?

Alfred Schreuder’s Hoffenheim have blown hot and cold this season. The team from the Kraichgau region recently won six league and cup games in a row, seeing off the likes of Bayern Munich and Schalke along the way. Since then, however, they have taken one point from a possible 12, losing three and drawing one.

Hoffenheim have been solid away from home of late. The club recently sealed successive away wins over Bayern, Hertha Berlin, Duisburg (German Cup) and Cologne. However, they were beaten 3-1 by Red Bull Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena in their last away outing.

Hoffenheim will put some daylight between themselves and Union Berlin with a win in the capital on Tuesday. The away team head to Berlin as the second favourites, though, with the bookies pricing them at 2/1.

Union Berlin vs Hoffenheim Predictions

Draw: Union Berlin have been very competitive so far. Fischer’s men finished third in the 2. Bundesliga last season, beating Stuttgart in the promotion/relegation play-offs. Union are sitting pretty in mid-table at the moment, recovering well from a shaky start. Since losing four in a row, Berlin have bounced back with six wins from nine in all competitions.

Hoffenheim were flying not so long ago, but Schreuder’s men have gone off the boil in recent matches, losing three and drawing one of their last four. However, they have been decent on the road so far, claiming 11 points from 21 on offer.

The league table shows how evenly matched these two have been this term. I fancy the pair to cancel each out in Berlin on Tuesday. Take a punt on this to end in a 1-1 draw, which is available at 11/2.

Sweden international Sebastian Andersson has been in fine fettle this season, scoring ten goals in 20 appearances for club and country. The Union Berlin striker is priced at 5/1 to open the scoring in this one.
