Union Berlin to Win

Reason for tip

The bottom-ranked side failed to win in each of the last 12 clashes when top meets bottom in the Bundesliga, we’re expecting that trend to continue here as the brilliant Union Berlin look to pile more misery on a simply abject Bochum side.

Union Berlin 2-0

Reason for tip

No side failed to score more often than Bochum’s 40% rate in the Bundesliga this season. With Union keeping Dortmund off the scoresheet last time out, this could be another workmanlike win without reply for the Iron Ones.

Bochum vs Union Berlin Predictions

  • The league leaders are unbeaten in each of the last 12 Bundesliga games involving top and bottom (W11, D1).
  • Union Berlin have won five consecutive games without conceding a goal.
  • Bochum have lost eight of their opening ten league games.

Rock-bottom Bochum are right up against it

A 4-1 humbling to Stuttgart last time out left Bochum propping up the Bundesliga table with no immediate route out of danger.

This is now Bochum’s worst ever ten-game start to a top-flight season and relegation is almost a certainty if history is to be believed as the only side to pick up the same or fewer points across the last decade was Hamburg back in 2016/17.

When the side starting the day at the peak of the table meets the bottom-ranked side, the bottom side have gone on to lose 11 of the last 12 Bundesliga encounters (D1). As such, it’s difficult to see Bochum bucking that trend, especially as they welcome a rock-solid Union side that haven’t conceded in over seven hours of play.

The Iron Ones can put Bochum to the sword

A 2-0 win over Dortmund was swiftly followed up with a win by the same scoreline against second-tier Heidenheim in the cup, and that’s exactly where Union will be helping to send Bochum with yet another win to keep them at the peak of the table.

After playing in the Bundesliga for only three seasons themselves, Union have gone from strength to strength. Urs Fischer’s men will more than likely be playing knockout European football and perhaps an incredible ousting of Bayern Munich’s ten straight championships could be incoming, but they certainly need to win games like this if that conversation is going to start gaining traction.

We’re going for another Union win ad at 1.9, this represents significant value against the worst side in the Bundesliga. For smaller stakes, we’re going for a third consecutive 2-0 win for Union.
