Home » Freiburg vs. Union Berlin Match Preview and Betting Tips

Bundesliga mid-table neighbors Freiburg—9th placed—and 10th placed Union Berlin face-off this weekend in the Schwarzwald-Stadion as they battle for mid-table supremacy.

The two teams who are separated by three points go into game week 25 knowing that a win here draws them closer to Schalke who occupy the last European position available this season.

The home side remain in hunt for a top six finish despite their three-game winless Bundesliga run (D1, L2) that have seen them fail to score in two of their recent defeats. They will however fancy their chances against a Union Berlin team back from a strenuous cup defeat to Leverkusen knowing that a win here can land them an European position.

The visiting team whose DFB Pokal dreams came to a halt this week will look to pick up valuable points as they look to climb on level points with their hosts.

Betting Preview

Despite their three game winless run, Freiburg still have their eyes set on the top-six and European football for next season as they sit just one point off sixth-placed Schalke.

The home team is in a poor run of form, having picked up one win in five league games (W1, D1, L3). They have also failed to score in their last two games which all ended in defeats. This means that they have failed to score in their last four top-flight games, while the previous three saw them trail at half-time.

Freiburg are without a draw in their last seven league games (W4, L3), with all three defeats within that period arriving by a two goal margin.

However, four of the victories recorded in this period came with a one goal margin.

12 out of the 26 goals scored in the Schwarzwald-Stadion this season have come after the 75th minute, so you can expect some late drama.

Union Berlin on their part are on a good run of form as they have picked up seven points from the last 12 available (w2, D1, L1).

In each of these fixtures, they have scored two times and also have netted the opening goal in each of those games. This mean that Die Eisernen have scored first in 13 of their 24 league games this season winning nine of those matches in the process (W9, D2, L2).

On the other side of the pitch, Union have kept only clean sheet on the road this season.
