Market: Union Berlin double chance
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
With a real chance to extend on what has been an early-season purple patch, a high-flying Union Berlin will make the trip to a struggling Koln on Sunday evening.
Starting with the hosts, last seen heading into November’s international break by throwing away the lead late on away at Werder Bremen and having to settle for a point, Koln have drastically struggled since opening the 2020/2021 campaign. Just about managing to hold onto their Bundesliga status during last year’s interrupted run, the Billy Goats are still looking for their first top-flight victory so far this season and they’re really seen as one of the leading relegation contenders this time around. With their continued issues highlighted by a thumping 3-1 defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach last month, it should also be noted that Koln have failed to win any of their last nine straight Bundesliga contests on home soil continuing on from last season.
As for the visitors, while Koln might be really struggling to find any momentum since opening the New Year, Union Berlin had impressed many across Germany prior to November’s international break. Last seen earlier in the month putting in what was a rampant display on home soil, they put five past top-flight returners Arminia Bielefeld and the mood in their camp should be at a real high. Also laying down a real marker as they picked up a 3-1 win against European chasers Hoffenheim, Head Coach Urs Fischer finds his side in the midst of a hugely impressive six-match Bundesliga unbeaten run. Landing a 2-1 win the last time they made the trip to the RheinEnergieStadion, Union Berlin will be confident of leaving with something to show for themselves this weekend.
