Bundesliga Preview: Can Leipzig Overcome Home Struggles Against Confident Union Berlin?

RB Leipzig and Union Berlin are both looking to get back on track when they meet in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

Leipzig have lost three consecutive league games for only the second time in their history, while Union have only won one of their last eight away matches.

Leipzig will be hoping to make home advantage count, having lost this fixture at home twice in a row. They will also be looking to do the double over Union for the first time since 2019/20.

Union have improved under new manager Nenad Bjelica, but they still need to improve their away form. They have not won in their last eight away league games, and have failed to score in each of their last five.

One to watch: Leipzig wonderkid Benjamin Šeško scored twice in the last 10 minutes to earn Leipzig a 3-0 win in the reverse fixture in September. Union may look to Benedict Hollerbach for a response, as all three of his goals for Union have come after half-time, although they have all been scored at home.

Hot stat: Union have only scored one away goal after half-time in the Bundesliga this season.

Prediction: Leipzig 2-1 Union Berlin
