Union Berlin will host the champion Bayern Munich at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei in a match from the 11th round of the Bundesliga. Now it’s time to take a look at this game in the German capital.
For Union Berlin this season started in a terrific way. At this moment the club from the capital is 6th in the standings with 16 points won and that’s a great way to start the new campaign. Union have lost just two of their 10 games in the Bundesliga so far which is impressive.
Last week Union Berlin suffered their second defeat in the league. They participated in the capital derby against Hertha BSC at the Olympiastadion, but suffered a 1-3 defeat against the Old Lady. Taiwo Awoniyi actually opened the score for Union, but in the second half Hertha scored three times and managed to snatch the win.
Bayern Munich are leaders in the Bundesliga after 10 rounds played. The Bavarians are one point ahead of the second Bayer Leverkusen and they still have just one defeat – against Hoffenheim.
Last week the reigning champions made a second draw for the season. Bayern faced RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena and it ended with a dramatic 3-3 draw. Thomas Muller scored a brace for Bayern while Jamal Musiala also scored for the Bavarian giants. Conceding three times at home ground was not okay, though.
During the week Bayern Munich has a game in the Champions League as well. Their fixture against Lokomotiv Moscow at the Allianz Arena is not decisive though, so we expect to see the manager Hansi Flick rotating the team and giving a rest to key players.
That’s the preview for the Bundesliga game between Union Berlin and Bayern Munich in the capital. Don’t be too surprised if Union cause Bayern some problems here – they are doing very good this season.
