Union Berlin vs Wolfsburg preview: Union Berlin need to turn things around against Wolfsburg

Union Berlin are in danger of being dragged into a relegation battle after a poor run of form.

The Iron Ones have only won one game in 2024, and they are now just three points above the relegation play-off place.

Union will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they host Wolfsburg on Saturday.

The Wolves are also struggling for form, and they have not won in their last five away games.

Union will be boosted by the return of manager Nenad Bjelica, who has served a three-match touchline ban.

Bjelica will be hoping to inspire his team to a victory, and they will be confident of their chances of getting a result at home.

Union have won their last three home games in the Bundesliga, and they have only conceded one goal in those games.

Wolfsburg will be hoping to spoil the party and make it a double over Union.

The Wolves won the reverse fixture 2-1 in September, but they have not won away to Union in their last five visits.

Wolfsburg are on a run of four draws in the Bundesliga, and they have only drawn one of their first 22 league games this season.

If they fail to win on Saturday, it will be their first six-game winless run in the Bundesliga under Niko Kovac.

Key Players:

  • Robin Gosens scored Union’s only goal in the reverse fixture, and all six of his goals this season have been scored before half-time.
  • Kevin Behrens will be looking to score against his former club. He has scored eight of his last 10 goals at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.

Hot Stat: Union have only lost three of their last 21 Bundesliga home games in which they were the favorites (13 wins, 5 draws).

Prediction: Union Berlin to win 2-1.
