Union Berlin will be on the road on Wednesday, as they look to maintain their strong start to the Bundesliga season. The German side travels to Werder Bremen, who will be looking to end a three-game losing run.
Union Berlin has been one of the consistent sides in the Bundesliga over the previous two seasons. However, few would have believed that they would be sitting as high as third at this stage of the campaign. Union has won just twice in their previous five, but they have lost just four games in 16 all season. The team from the German capital currently sits five points off the top of the standings, and just one point inside the Champions League spots.
Union returned to Bundesliga action on Saturday, as they picked up a hard-fought 3-1 win at home against Hoffenheim. They trailed 1-0 going into the final 20 minutes, but a brace from Danilho Doekhi and a goal from Jamie Leweling turned the game on its head. A European finish will once again be within reach this term for Union.
Werder Bremen will have home advantage for this fixture on Wednesday, and they will be keen not to get dragged into a relegation scrap in the Bundesliga. At present, they sit tenth in the standings, but they have suffered three straight defeats. That leaves them just six clear of the bottom three.
Werder will need to get back on track to ease any relegation worries, but there hasn’t been evidence to suggest that will happen in recent months. They were humbled in their previous game against FC Köln, as they were hammered 7-1 on the road. Werder will need to be much more defensively solid in this home fixture on Wednesday.
Werder Bremen vs Union Berlin Head to Head
Union Berlin has picked up three wins from four Bundesliga fixtures against Werder Bremen, which includes successive 2-0 wins on the road against their opponents this week. The only win recorded by Werder in the previous four meetings was a win in Berlin.
Werder Bremen vs Union Berlin Prediction
