Union Berlin vs Hoffenheim: prediction for the Bundesliga match
Union have a solid season, currently they are fighting for a spot in the European competitions. Urs Fischer's team is currently at the 7th spot in the standings with 28 points, tied with 6th placed Koln. The Iron Ones can even fight for the Champions League - a 4th placed Freiburg is only two points ahead.
Hoffenheim got off to a poor start of the season, but eventually regained form and now Sebastian Hoeness' team is already at the 3rd spot in the standings. But any mistake can make the Villagers to drop a few positions lower - their today opponent, who is at the 7th spot, is only three points behind.
In the previous match Hoffenheim beat Augsburg (3:1) and extended their unbeaten run to seven Bundesliga matches.
Two out of five most recent home matches of Union finished with that score
This bet played in two most recent head-to-head matches
In three most recent away matches Hoffenheim scored in the second half
Hoffenheim are in a wonderful form and already got to the 3rd spot in the standings, now the Villagers will try to get a grip. Visitors have a great offensive line, so we don't think that Union will keep a clean sheet. The Iron Ones are also a dangerous opponent to any team at home, so they should be able to score as well.
Our prediction - both teams to score
Union always try to play offensively at home matches, so we don't think that the Iron Ones will change the strategy. In recent years Hoffenheim always have problems in matches against Union, plus they make many mistakes on away matches, so we think that hosts have more chances in this game.
Our second bet - Asian handicap (0) on Union
