Union Berlin vs RB Leipzig Prediction: Bundesliga Match

Union Berlin has had an excellent start to the new season and they are aiming for a third consecutive league win to maintain their position at the top of the standings before the international break. RB Leipzig will be visiting the capital.


Bundesliga Preview 

There was a slight doubt hanging over Union Berlin before the start of the new season, as many questioned whether they would be able to maintain the high standards that they set last term. However, those doubts have been answered over the opening weeks of the season, as Union come into matchday three sitting top of the Bundesliga standings. 

Union have won each of their opening two matches, scoring four goals in each victory. In domestic fixtures this term, they have netted 12 goals across three fixtures, and they have conceded just twice. Their most recent win came last weekend, as they secured a routine victory on the road against Darmstadt. Robin Gosens scored twice in that 4-1 success, with Union forced to play with ten men for over an hour following Brenden Aaronson’s red card after 21 minutes.

RB Leipzig didn’t get off to the best start in the Bundesliga this term, as they were beaten on matchday one. However, they put that setback behind them to get off the mark for the new campaign at the second attempt last weekend. It was a dominant display by Leipzig, as they cruised to a 5-1 win over Stuttgart. 

Five different scorers found the back of the net in that win, including recent recruits Xavi Simons and Lois Openda. It was a dominant display, but a similar outing against Union is extremely unlikely. 

Union Berlin vs RB Leipzig Head to Head 

Union Berlin boast a staggering record in this fixture, as they have won each of their last five against Leipzig. That includes three straight wins in home fixtures by 2-1 scorelines. 

Union Berlin vs RB Leipzig Prediction 

Union’s record in this fixture appears to be a trend that is challenging to overlook this weekend. Therefore, we will be siding with the hosts to pick up a third straight victory this season, with both teams once again finding the back of the net.
