Union Berlin Draw No Bet

Reason for tip

Union Berlin can maintain their position at the top of the table and they’re likely to do just that given that Leverkusen continue to stumble in the infancy of Xabi Alonso’s managerial reign.

Union Berlin 1-0

Reason for tip

Seven of Union’s last eight wins also saw them keep a clean sheet whilst their last three victories came by just a single-goal margin. Consequently, we’re backing Union to just about edge this one with a narrow 1-0 win.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Union Berlin Predictions

  • Leverkusen are enduring a six-game run without victory.
  • Union Berlin can maintain their table-topping place with a win.
  • Union Berlin are unbeaten in five of their six league games as pre-match outsiders this season.

Leverkusen’s rot goes on and on

A disparaging goalless draw against Club Brugge in midweek consigned Bayer Leverkusen to elimination from the Champions League in the group stage.

The Eternal Bridesmaids will have to settle for a Europa League berth but their attention now turns back to domestic matters as Xabi Alonso struggles to get his side playing since taking the reins at the struggling club (W1, D3, L3).

Those games have contributed to Leverkusen’s worst ever Bundesliga start since the switch to three points for a win. Not only this, but Leverkusen have attempted just 36 shots across the last four rounds, that’s a worrying league-low that needs to be addressed ahead of this clash with the league leaders after round 12.

Back Union to continue defying the odds

With three wins, two draws and a sole defeat from six league games as pre-match outsiders this season, Union Berlin won’t mind being priced up as the underdogs yet again despite leading the standings after the previous round.

Considering the absolute polarity in form between the sides, it seems strange that the bookmakers have priced Union so generously. Urs Fischer’s men come into this on the back of a 1-0 win over Royale Union SG in Europe which sealed their very first UEFA group stage qualification.

We’re getting behind Union to keep the good times rolling in the ‘draw no bet’ market, as the generous price allows us to take some insurance out. As for the correct score, we’re going for a small stakes play on the same scoreline as in all six of Union’s European group games, 1-0!
