Union Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund Tips and Prediction
With a victory over Stuttgart last weekend, Urs Fischer’s team maintained their lead in the Bundesliga. Union Berlin’s upward trajectory is unstoppable.
Furthermore, Die Eisernen defeated Malmo 1-0 on Thursday night with to Robin Knoche’s 89th-minute penalty, guaranteeing that they will play in European competition after winter for the first time in their history.
With only one point separating Braga from second place in Group D of the Europa League, the outcome of their matchup at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei in less than two weeks will likely determine which team advances to the knockout stages and which team gets relegated to the Europa Conference League.
Union, however, will be concentrating on three home matches in the interim, beginning with a challenging match against Dortmund on what is being dubbed “Super Sunday” because Freiburg and Bayern Munich will also be playing that day.
Fischer’s team has nothing to fear going up against their opponents, especially after defeating them in two of their three home encounters since being promoted in 2019. They have already defeated RB Leipzig and held Bayern at home this season.
Dortmund, on the other hand, has displayed admirable tenacity over the past week by rallying from deficits to draw with both Bayern and Sevilla.
Last weekend’s Der Klassiker at the Westfalenstadion saw Dortmund trail by two goals after Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sane scored either side of halftime. However, Youssoufa Moukoko gave the home team a spark 16 minutes before the end, and Anthony Modeste made his official debut for the BVB faithful by tying the score in the fifth minute of extra time.
Even though it is still early in the season, Edin Terzic’s team will not want to lose any more ground on their upcoming opponents as they head into Sunday’s crucial games level on points with their possible title contenders.
After Jude Bellingham joined Kylian Mbappe and his former teammate Erling Haaland as the only youngsters to score in four straight Champions League matches to claim a point for his club, Dortmund should only need one more point to advance to the knockout stages of the competition.
Terzic will not want to see his team trail Union Berlin for the third time in a row. Union Berlin’s defensive fortitude typically makes them very difficult to overcome, as evidenced by the fact that they have won three of their last four league games by a score of 0–0.
Although Union Berlin are incredibly difficult to beat, especially at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei, we think Dortmund has the self-assurance and attacking skills to leave the capital with a win.
After last weekend’s comeback in Der Klassiker, Terzic’s team ought to have gained a lot of confidence. In the end, both teams might be content with a share of the points to maintain their standings.
