Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin Prediction & Match Preview

Preview: Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin

After a surprising home defeat to Werder Bremen, Bayern Munich is eager to bounce back against Union Berlin on Wednesday in a rescheduled Bundesliga Matchday 13 fixture.

Trailing leaders Bayer Leverkusen by seven points, Bayern can’t afford another stumble in their pursuit of an 11th consecutive league title. Despite dominating Werder Bremen with 21 shots, their toothless performance led to a second loss in five league games.

Union Berlin, with nine days of rest after a postponed Friday fixture against Mainz, has tightened their defense recently with clean sheets against Hoffenheim and Freiburg. However, their away form has been lackluster, garnering just four points from eight trips this season.

Historically, Bayern dominates this matchup, winning six and drawing three of the last nine encounters with Union Berlin. In their two most recent home meetings, Bayern secured 7-0 and 3-0 victories, emphasizing their goal-scoring prowess with 33 goals in nine home fixtures this season.

Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin Prediction:

Despite Union Berlin’s defensive improvements and extra rest, Bayern’s desperation for a win, coupled with their historical dominance and firepower, makes them clear favorites.

Back Bayern to win with a -2.5 Asian Handicap at odds of 2.30. Additionally, consider Harry Kane, the league’s top scorer with 22 goals, at tempting 3.10 odds to open the scoring.
