Union Berlin will be looking to comeback to form after a 3-0 defeat to Bundesliga title rivals Bayern Munich when they play FC Koln on Saturday. Urs Fischer’s currently sit 3 points behind Bayern and Borussia Dortmund, while Koln sit just below the mid table in 12th, coming from back to back losses.
Trailing Bayern Munich throughout the campaign, Union Berlin fans expected the squad to give the German juggernauts a run for the title last weekend, but Fischer’s men were not able to break Bayern’s backline. Right after goals from Eric Choupo-Moting, Kingsley Coman and Jamal Musiala, the Iron Ones found themselves in a tough position, 3-0 down by half time, ultimately they were unable to respond at all for the rest of the match.
Let’s check the latest picks, Bundesliga news, stats and Bundesliga expert picks for Union vs Köln. We’ve plenty of Bundesliga predictions for you to consider.
Union failed to record a single shot on target versus Bayern, finishing the match with a mere 29% possession, highlighting the true dominance from the Bavarians. Nevertheless, even after losing to direct rivals, Union Berlin still remains in the title race after 22 matches, currently recording 13 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in 2022-23.
Looking at the other side of the field, FC Koln suffered a 2-0 loss versus Wolfsburg last weekend, despite recording a huge total of 13 shots on target. Steffen Baumgart’s squad have now lost their last 2 games, including an unexpected 3-0 defeat to relegation-zone Wolfsburg.
On top of that, Koln have only managed to win 1 out of their last 6 domestic matchups, with 2 victories, 4 draws and 6 losses coming in their last 12 league matches. The reasoning behind this being inconsistency on attack, with them recording shots on target from long distance areas without breaking into the box for better chances.
Koln did dominate Werder Bremen 7-1 back in January before entering a draw slump against Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig, soon after they claimed a 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Inconsistencies will continue on Koln, thus we believe a more steady ship in the form of Union Berlin will have an advantage this time around.
