Union Berlin have been one of the stand-out teams in Bundesliga this season and will be determined to secure a Champions League berth next term. Tied with SC Freiburg for one of four lucrative top-four places, Union Berlin know a victory would see them enter Europe’s premier competition and cap an outstanding home campaign where they have won 10 out of 16 Bundesliga games played at An der Alten Försterei Stadium.
Werder Bremen have endured a difficult away form this season and lost 7 of 16 Bundesliga away matches played away from home so far this term. They sit only four points above relegation while their goal difference trails Union Berlin’s by quite some margin.
Urs Fischer’s men may have suffered their first loss this season against Hoffenheim at home in their last game, bu with an unblemished home record and having never lost at An der Alten Forsterei this season, this German side remains very capable of taking fourth-place in their division and earning Champions League qualification.
Niclas Fullkrug returns after missing three matches due to a calf injury, giving Werder their top striker hope he can have an immediate impactful impact on this fixture. As one of Germany’s premier strikers – boasting 16 goals at 2.9 shots per game with clinical finisher Marvin Ducksch providing powerful attacking combinations – Fullkrug can look to make an immediate statement and score his mark against Union Berlin on Saturday.
Leonardo Bittencourt and Niklas Schmidt could form an effective midfield three alongside Ilia Gruev for the visitor, helping to contain Rani Khedira who has been so prolific for the hosts this season.
Union will look to build upon their 4-2 win against Hoffenheim in their previous away match, but Dikeni Salifou, Felix Agu, Mitchell Weiser, Amos Pieper and Christian Groß will miss this game due to injury, and Jens Stage will miss due to suspension.
