Union Berlin has started the season in excellent form, and they sit as the league leaders in the Bundesliga for the first time in their history. They will face a big challenge to keep that position this weekend, as they travel to Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.
Union Berlin has been one of the stories in the Bundesliga over the past couple of seasons. They are playing in Europe for the second consecutive season this year, but there are certainly loftier challenges that they are planning to achieve this coming season given the way that they have started the 2022-23 campaign.
Union is the current leader in the Bundesliga standings, as they have won five of the seven games that they have played. During that period, they are yet to lose this term, and have scored a league-high of 15 goals, and have conceded a league-low of four goals. They maintained that excellent start before the international break, as they recorded a 2-0 win against Wolfsburg. Theoson Siebatcheu and Sheraldo Becker scored the goals in the home victory.
Eintracht Frankfurt also enjoyed an excellent season last term, as they were crowned Europa League champions. However, transferring their form in Europe to Bundesliga competition has proven difficult in recent seasons. They have at least started this term better than the last, as they have won three of the opening seven games that they have played.
Victory this weekend will be enough to lift them into the top four in the German top-flight, and they come into the fixture in good form. They have won three of their previous four games, which includes a 3-1 away win against Stuttgart in their recent game before the international break.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Union Berlin Prediction
This looks like a captivating match in prospect this weekend, and cases can be made for both sides to take the victory. However, we could see Union’s bubble being pierced this weekend, as we could see these teams playing out a draw.
