Preview & Predictions: Darmstadt vs Union Berlin 8/26/2023

August 25, 2023


Game Preview


On Saturday, SV Darmstadt 98 will face Union Berlin in the Bundesliga, hoping to avenge their opening day loss to Eintracht Frankfurt. Meanwhile, Union Berlin had a fantastic opening game of the season, defeating Mainz 05 by a score of 4-1.


Even though Darmstadt lost their first Bundesliga match in over six years, they can take heart from holding Frankfurt to only one goal at Deutsche Bank Park. Randal Kolo Muani, a 24-year-old striker for France who has been linked to a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, scored the game-winning goal in the 40th minute to seal the victory for his team.


Although Torsten Lieberknecht’s boys only had 38% of the ball possession, they actually had one more shot than the home team had during the entire match. This weekend at Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor, against a team who is more willing to soak up possession themselves, Lieberknecht will expect to see that number climb, but he will be well aware of the enormous challenge confronting them.



Having only been promoted to the Bundesliga in 2019, Union Berlin serve as a role model for teams making the ascent. Die Eisernen have never before qualified for the Champions League, but they did so last season after only four years of trying. Considering they completed the previous season one point off of first place, this success was no fluke.


Urs Fischer has been quite active during the summer transfer window, bringing in players with plenty of experience in Europe’s top league, such as Robin Gosens, Kevin Volland, and Lucas Tousart.


Kevin Behrens, who scored a hat trick in Union Berlin‘s 4-1 thumping of Mainz on opening day, is one player who appears to be improving with age. The 32-year-old, along with several of his teammates, will be participating in the Champions League for the first time this season, but until then, they will be shooting for the win column before the international break in September.
