Union Berlin could use a big performance from Sheraldo Becker as they look to defend top spot and hold off the charge of Jude Bellingham and Borussia Dortmund on Super Sunday. Becker’s six Bundesliga goals have propelled Union to the summit, four points clear of the chasing pack. Die Eisernen were beaten for the first time this league season on Matchday 8 – losing 2-0 in Frankfurt – but bounced back by edging relegation-threatened VfB Stuttgart 1-0 last time out. Urs Fischer’s side are guaranteed to stay top for another week if they take maximum points against Dortmund. A draw would also suffice, unless second-placed Freiburg score a heavy win at Bayern Munich in Matchday 10’s final fixture.
Dortmund can move to within a point of Union with victory in the German capital. The Black-Yellows have suffered three defeats in this season’s Bundesliga, but showed their title credentials by coming from 2-0 down to draw with Bayern in Der Klassiker on Matchday 9. Mettle to the fore once again, BVB recovered from an early set-back to hold Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, with Kopa trophy frontrunner Bellingham’s fifth goal of the campaign keeping them on course for the last 16.
Dortmund captain, Marco Reus, could make his comeback this Sunday against Union, after suffering an injury that worried all of Germany, as it was thought to be worse than it really was. Also, Edin Terzoc was able to hold back Nico Shlotterbeck and Rapha Guerreiro until the second half, giving them the necessary resting time to be ready for “Super Sunday’s” match in Berlin.
Union is undefeated in their last 10 home Bundesliga matches, with 7 wins and three losses. However, their last loss at home on February 13th 2022 was against this Sunday’s rival, Borussia Dortmund.
