Union Berlin will try to stay in the title chase when they play Schalke on Matchday 21 after coming from behind to defeat Leipzig at Red Bull Arena. The capital club is aiming for their sixth straight league victory, and they are the favorites to take home all three points from the match on Sunday.
Urs Fischer, a Swiss manager, is doing a fantastic job with this Union Berlin team. After a run of five straight victories this year, his team is only one point behind league leaders Bayern Munich. One of the most recent was last weekend away at Red Bull Arena against RB Leipzig, who are directly competing for a Champions League spot.
In a game where RB Leipzig had very few chances to score, Janik Haberer and Robin Knoche (a center-back who takes penalties) were vital for the Berlin team. With such a superb defensive display, Union Berlin will finally have the opportunity to keep a clean sheet this weekend when they take on the faltering Schalke team.
Union Berlin’s preparations for this match were certainly disrupted by a creditable stalemate away to Ajax in the Europa League, but they are still unbeaten in all competitions in 2023 and will enter this match with confidence as they pursue Bayern Munich. The Iron Ones, along with Bayern Munich, are the only two remaining unbeaten home teams. They have been particularly dominant at home this year.

Meanwhile, with three straight draws, Schalke have slightly stemmed their downward spiral, but the bottom-dwelling club is still seven points from safety going into this round and hasn’t won since November 2022. For Royal Blues supporters, looking at Schalke’s away record is distressing because they have lost all 37 of their away games in the Bundesliga. That represents an all-time losing streak for any Bundesliga club, making the case for an away victory all the more flimsy.
