Leipzig Union Berlin betting prediction


Betting suggestion:

RB Leipzig should control the match and take advantage of the opponent's various defensive flaws to create chances for goals. On the other hand, Union Berlin should look for the attack from the first minute, since it is going through a very positive phase of the season. It should also be noted that Union Berlin lost only 1 of the 7 games played away from home. Taking into account these factors, risking in favor of the "HA +1.5 of Union Berlin" market in this game is a good option.

Preview

RB Leipzig and Union Berlin face at Red Bull Arena, in a match for the 17th round of the Bundesliga. In the last 3 years these teams met twice: the earliest head‑to‑head was played on 18‑01‑2020 and ended in a (3‑1) win by RB Leipzig, and the latest on 18‑08‑2019, which ended in a (0‑4) win by RB Leipzig. Union Berlin registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis Leipzig

The home team is currently in the 2nd position of the league, with 32 points won, after 9 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Borussia Dortmund, by (1‑3). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Wolfsburg, by (2‑2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 25 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 27 goals scored and 16 conceded. In the last 8 home league matches RB Leipzig has a record of 6 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, so they have won 19 points out of 24 possible. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 6 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 4 of their 16 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1.

RB Leipzig arrives for this clash with a 2-2 draw at Wolfsburg, registering in this way the second straight game without winning in this Bundesliga: the goals of the team were signed by Willi Orban and Nordi Mukiele. Now in this match against Union Berlin, manager Julian Nagelsmann should play with a daring strategy, privileging the maintenance of ball possession and the positional attacks: Marcel Sabitzer will be the conductor of the team, responsible for creating the offensive process. Striker Yussuf Poulsen is one of RB Leipzig's top scorers with 4 goals. Out of this game are Konrad Laimer, Ibrahima Konaté, Benjamin Henrichs, Lazar Samardzic and Hee-Chan Hwang, all with physical problems.

Confirmed Lineup: Péter Gulácsi, Nordi Mukiele, Lukas Klostermann, Angeliño, Marcel Halstenberg, Dayot Upamecano, Christopher Nkunku, Kevin Kampl, Daniel Olmo, Marcel Sabitzer, Alexander Sørloth.
Coach: J. Nagelsmann.

The away team is currently in the 5th position of the league, with 28 points won, after 7 wins, 7 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Wolfsburg, by (2‑2). In the last match, they won in a home match against Bayer Leverkusen, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 21 goals scored and 26 conceded; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 35 goals scored and 16 conceded. Their last away match for this competition ended in a win by (0‑2) against Werder Bremen. In the last 7 away league matches Union Berlin has a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 12 points out of 21 possible. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (3 out of 7 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 45 of the last 49 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 16 matches for the Bundesliga, they have reached half‑time in front in 6 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 7 of them. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 10 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Union Berlin comes to this clash with a 1-0 home victory over Bayer Leverkusen, registering the sixth consecutive game without losing in the Bundesliga: the only goal of the match was scored by Cedric Teuchert. Now, in this match against RB Leipzig, coach Urs Fischer should act in the usual tactical system, the 3-5-2, privileging the organization of his defensive block and counterattacks, especially through the left aisle: Christopher Trimmel offers great depth to the team. Taiwo Awoniyi is one of Union Berlin's top scorers, with 5 goals scored. For this game the manager cannot count on Anthony Ujah, Max Kruse and Joel Pohjanpalo due to physical problems.

Confirmed Lineup: Andreas Luthe, Julian Ryerson, Robin Knoche, Christopher Lenz, Marvin Friedrich, Florian Hübner, Sebastian Griesbeck, Robert Andrich, Marcus Ingvartsen, Taiwo Awoniyi, Cedric Teuchert.
Coach: U. Fischer.
