Competition: Bundesliga

Market: Union Berlin win

Odds: 12/11 @ 888sport

Hoping to secure back-to-back Bundesliga victories on Saturday afternoon, Union Berlin will welcome Stuttgart to the capital.

Starting with the hosts, while Union Berlin might have been left heartbroken on March 16th as they watched their European adventure come to an abrupt end, Urs Fischer’s side have continued on another domestic romp this season. Last seen heading into the international break with an eye-catching display on home soil as they secured a 2-0 victory against Eintracht Frankfurt, the Iron Ones have their sights firmly set on securing a famous Champions League ticket in 2023. Although Fischer’s men might have accepted that a legitimate title charge is off the cards, Union have only continued to shine on home soil. In fact, on what has quickly become a staggering run of form, Saturday’s hosts have not suffered a single defeat in front of their own supporters since way back on September 8th. Hoping to mark their return from the international break with another statement, Die Eisernen are rightfully tipped as a standout pick here.

As for the visitors, although Stuttgart might have clung to their Bundesliga status last season, Die Roten are enduring a real top-flight nightmare this time around. Marking their return from the international break sat rock-bottom of the table and tipped as a landslide relegation pick, Alexander Wehrle’s men have claimed just a single point from any of their last four Bundesliga appearances. Last seen heading into the March interval with a toothless 1-0 defeat at home against Wolfsburg, it should also be noted that Stuttgart have claimed just one top-flight victory since opening 2023. Likewise, with their extended struggles highlighted by what could turn out to be a crucial 2-1 defeat against fellow relegation scrappers Schalke, Wehrle’s side should face a tough test this weekend. Suffering a 1-0 loss when they welcomed Union to the Mercedes-Benz Arena back on October 9th, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
