When Union Berlin made the leap into the Bundesliga last summer through relegation, the joy was huge – not only because after so many years of deprivation you were finally first class. It was much more about being able to greet the big opponents at the Alte Försterei. Now Bayern are coming, nothing more is possible in German football and the spectators remain locked out.
Union Berlin vs Bayern Betting Odds and Predictions
It doesn’t get any bitter. The Iron tried everything to hold this game in front of an audience, but in the end had to bow to pressure from the associations and health authorities. From the point of view of Köpenicker, unfortunately, it remains to be stated that the Coronavirus Union Berlin has brought about the game of the year, perhaps the game of club history.
Points will still be played on Saturday. In the Bundesliga table, Bayern have already taken over their very own reign. The cushion on Borussia Dortmund is currently four points. It can still be a tight title race. What the BVB is delivering this weekend can be read in the other Bundesliga tips.
Back to our game. Union is playing a great season and will probably have nothing to do with the relegation battle, although of course Urs Fischer is constantly raising his warning finger. With 30 points, the Iron are in eleventh place and have a cushion of eight points on the relegation place.
Before the match between Union Berlin and Bayern, the prediction is for another Bundesliga season for the Iron. Then possibly with spectators in a duel against the record champions.
Bayern have an exciting record in the capital. Bayern failed to win three teams in Bundesliga history, including Blau-Weiß 90 Berlin and Tennis Borussia. Union still belongs to this group, even though the Munich players are playing at the Alte Försterei for the first time.
Overall, there is much to suggest that a tip on the guests should be successful between Union Berlin and Bayern. For that, the record champion is currently in an overform. Perhaps the Munichers are so irritated by a ghost game that they leave points in the capital. The kick-off for the 26th matchday in the Bundesliga between Union Berlin and Bayern Munich at the Alte Försterei will take place on March 14, 2020.
Union Berlin – Statistics & current form
Union Berlin is almost always an outsider this season. Especially against the top teams of the Bundesliga, the betting providers we tested rarely give a positive forecast. However, the Ironians have only lost 50 percent of their games this season, in which they were treated as a clear underdog.
The betting odds on the Köpenicker therefore often bring a certain value, which should not be the case against Bayern. The difference between these two clubs could hardly be bigger. Even a narrow defeat by Köpenicker on Saturday would probably be a success.
Union deficit = defeat
However, the Berliners will have to be careful not to get an early goal, because if Union fell behind in a home game, there was always a defeat after 90 minutes. Bayern have been known for scoring fast goals in recent weeks. Therefore, it could be advisable to keep an eye on the success rates of the guests between Union Berlin and Bayern.
Last weekend, Union Berlin lost again after a good series away. At SC Freiburg there was a deserved 1-3 loss. The interim goal of Sebastian Andersson was not enough. Union Berlin has now been without a win for three competitive games. Perhaps a ghost game is just right for the Berliners under these circumstances.
With courage to succeed
Even if the support of his own fans will be missing, Urs Fischer wants to see his team make a bold appearance.
“Bayernis certainly the best team in Germany at the moment. I think it takes a lot of courage on our part. ” – Urs Fischer
That sounds a little easier said than done, because the Berlin coach knows, of course, that the currently best German team will not be easy to crack. The Berliners will nevertheless attempt to do so.
At the starting XI there will be no major changes for the Iron. However, Marvin Friedrich will be missing after his dismissal in Freiburg. Parensen could begin for him. Akaki Gogia, Joshua Mees and Manuel Schmiedebach are still injured. Yunus Malli and Marcus Ingvartsen should fight for a place in the attacking midfield.
Probable lineup of Union Berlin:
➤ Gikiewicz – Subotic, Schlotterbeck, Hübner – Trimmel, Andrich, Gentner, Lenz – Ingvartsen, Bülter – Andersson
➤ Trainer: Fischer

Bayern- Statistics & current form
Hansi Flick’s contract extension is still in the stars. The coach knows about his good starting position after the last excellent games and results and not only makes demands for duration and salary, but also wants to be granted a veto right for transfers. The negotiations could therefore be very tough.
However, the coach still has the sporting arguments on his side. In the Bundesliga there have been ten wins and one draw in the last eleven games. Overall, Bayern have been unbeaten for 15 competitive matches. The championship can probably only block the Munich themselves.
Away from home things are going great in the Bundesliga. Abroad, there still against opponents and audience, there have been five victories in a row with an average of four Bayern goals per game. Union probably has to be careful not to get under the wheels. Between Union Berlin and Bayern, the prediction is clearly in the direction of the guests.
Last weekend, however, Bayern were extremely difficult at home against Augsburg. In the end it was a tedious 2-0. Thomas Müller and Leon Goretzka were the goal scorers. Müller in particular put his finger in the wound afterwards and was not at all satisfied with the pompous appearance of himself and his colleagues.
Müller demands increased performance
If the announcement by the leading player bears fruit, Bayern will show their prettier face again on Saturday. Munichers should not get involved in a fighting game against Union. Bayern should not be able to do without the basic virtues such as passion and will.
In general, not much will be changed in the formation. Thiago Alcantara complained of a flu infection during the week. Therefore, it will probably not be enough for a starting eleven. Robert Lewandowski, Niklas Süle and Ivan Perisic are still missing. Kingsley Coman is fit again and should start on the offensive.
Probable lineup of Bayern:
➤ Neuer – Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies – Kimmich – Müller, Goretzka, Coman, Coutinho – Gnabry
➤ Coach: Flick

Union Berlin vs Bayern Direct comparison
The first leg was the first game between Union Berlin and Bayern Munich. After the 2-1 success of the Munich team, the record champion is of course ahead in a direct comparison. However, it was a tight box. Benjamin Pavard and Robert Lewandowski brought Bayern forward 2-0. Sebastian Andersson then awarded a penalty before Sebastian Polter scored the 1-2 from a Union perspective.
Thomas Müller with good experiences against Union
In 2008 Union kicked in the newly formed third division on the first match day against the second team of FC Bayern. In Munich, Bayern won 2-1. Thomas Müller scored the first Bayern goal in the third division before starting his steep career in the first team of the record champion and later becoming world champion.
Union Berlin vs Bayern Betting Odds and Predictions
With full ranks, it can be difficult as a favorite at the Alte Försterei. Dortmund, Gladbach and Leverkusen, among others, felt this. Bayern are currently another number, however. Without fans, it will be twice as difficult for Union to stop the record champions.
Bayern have been unbeaten for 15 games and have scored an average of four goals away in their last five games, winning everything. In this condition, it is not expected that Hansi Flick’s team will stumble on Saturday. Therefore, everything points to placing a tip on the guests between Union Berlin and Bayern.
