Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin – Betting Preview
The Bundesliga title race will be significantly impacted by Sunday’s matchup at the Allianz Arena because Bayern Munich and Union Berlin are tied on 43 points at the top of the standings.
Surprisingly, there are just five points separating the top six teams in the division, with Borussia Dortmund sandwiched between table-topping Bayern and third-placed Union.
Bayern Munich Preview
Bayern Munich will be hoping for a better result this time after losing to Borussia Mönchengladbach 3-2 in their previous Bundesliga encounter. Bayern Munich has scored after going out to play in each of their last six games, proving that they have no trouble finding the back of the net.
Throughout that period, they have collected 15 and distributed a total of 6. Yet, there is no assurance that this trend will hold throughout the subsequent game. In their previous 17 league games at home, Bayern Munich had a spotless record. Really amazing
It’s also important to note that Bayern has won back-to-back games after recording three consecutive 1-1 draws before the winter break. Their most recent match ended in a 3-2 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach, giving them nine points out of a possible 18 since the break.
Union Berlin Preview
There is no denying that Union have struggled to score goals at times this season, but they have played solid defence the entire time, finishing with the second-best defensive record in the Bundesliga as a result.
The surprise team from the capital will fancy their chances of beating the defending champions after holding Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw in the reverse matchup back in September, despite having just 25% of the ball at home.
In their last six games combined, the Union Berlin defence has put in a series of outstanding performances and only given up 4 goals.
Their own assault force has scored nine goals over that time. Union Berlin has won their last three away league games going into this contest!
