Union Berlin to Win

Reason for tip

Union Berlin have won each of their last five meetings with Leipzig and the hosts are unbeaten in their last 24 home league games, winning 16. Leipzig lost four of six visits to the top seven last term and they were beaten in their trip to Bayer Leverkusen. Sunday pits them against the early Bundesliga pacesetters and Union look good for another win.

Union Berlin 2-1

Reason for tip

Union Berlin have won 2-1 in each of their last five meetings with Leipzig and the visitors have scored in both of their Bundesliga games this term, including a 3-2 loss at Bayer Leverkusen. Union have won their first two games 4-1, but this clash should be closer so another 2-1 victory appeals.

Union Berlin vs RB Leipzig Predictions

  • Leipzig opened the campaign with a loss at Bayer Leverkusen
  • Union Berlin have won both games to top the table
  • The hosts have won five straight meetings with Leipzig

Flying start for Union

Union Berlin went into this weekend top of the Bundesliga table for the eighth time in their history, despite only topping the table for the first time last season. They did put up some early resistance to Bayern Munich last term, with only the German champions spending more time at the Bundesliga summit than Union since the start of last term.

The hosts went on to finish fourth in the table and they are set to meet Napoli and Real Madrid in the Champions League group stage this autumn. As they continue their remarkable climb up the ranks of German football, Sunday pits them against the side who finished directly above them last term.

Hosts can claim another win

RB Leipzig lost 3-2 at Bayer Leverkusen in their first game of the season and they should be concerned ahead of this trip. Union Berlin have won each of the last five meetings between these two sides, which makes them look overpriced as the outsiders for this clash.

Leipzig are rebuilding after a string of high-profile departures to the Premier League. Meanwhile, the hosts are aiming to continue building on their recent success.

The hosts are unbeaten in their last 24 Bundesliga home games, winning 16 times. That’s the longest active run across the Bundesliga, so there’s arguably nowhere tougher for Leipzig to visit right now. The visitors lost four of six visits to the top seven last term, so the hosts are great value for a win.
