Union Berlin vs Dortmund Match Preview and Team News
Union Berlin is 6th in the standings with 18 points from 12 matches and start this round only four points behind top-four. Union drew 2-2 at Stuttgart that continued their impressive run in the league. The hosts have lost only once in Bundesliga over their last 11 matches – winning four and drawing six. In fact, only Eintracht Frankfurt have drawn more games than Union this season. With 25 goals so far in the season, Union has not just matched their visitors of the day but has also been the third-highest scoring side of the league. Three of those draws have come at home in their last five league matches, with the other two ending as wins. They have scored in each of their six home matches, which could also continue in this fixture. Sheraldo Becker enjoys the pitch, when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems, he is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Taiwo Awoniyi is the best player on the team, he is excellent in the penalty area, and the fans adore him.
Dortmund is 4th in the standings with 22 points and are only three points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen ahead of this round. Dortmund responded to Terzic’s first match as a manager with a 2-1 win at Werder Bremen. It stopped a three-match winless run in the league that saw one draw and two losses for Dortmund. Incredibly, though, Dortmund hasn’t won two league matches in a row since the start of November. That said, Dortmund has been impressive on the road with four wins in their last five away games. Two of those wins came with a clean sheet, and Dortmund would be keen to continue that winning form. Axel Witsel commands midfield, and the Belgian international does not allow the opponent much action in the middle. There is also Julian Brandt, who puts confident performances and plays without error. In the beginning, he had offers from some bigger clubs, but a move to Borussia Dortmund proved to be a perfect choice. Sancho creates a lot of trouble for opponents on the right-wing. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, he has fantastic dribbles, and many teams are interested in signing the English international.
