Union Berlin vs Napoli Predictions & Match Preview

Union Berlin vs Napoli Predictions & Match Preview

Napoli is seeking redemption following a 3-2 defeat against Real Madrid as they face Union Berlin at Olympiastadion.

Victor Osimhen, the injured striker, won’t be joining the Partenopei in their trip to Germany. Surprisingly, Osimhen’s absence was not keenly felt in their recent 3-1 victory over Verona.

Giacomo Raspadori will continue to lead Napoli’s attack in Osimhen’s stead, while Zambo Anguissa and Juan Jesus remain sidelined with injuries.

On the other side, the Bundesliga team has been in a poor run of form lately, suffering eight consecutive losses in all competitions, including a 0-3 defeat to Stuttgart.

Given their shaky defense, it seems there is considerable value in betting on Rudi Garcia’s squad. Meanwhile, Union Berlin faces uncertainties on their home front, with Mikkel Kaufmann and Jerome Roussillon being major doubts. Furthermore, Josip Juranovic, Laurenz Dehl, and Andras Schafer are ruled out with injuries.

Team News:

Union Berlin will be missing the services of Alexander Schwolow, Andras Schafer, Laurenz Dehl, Josip Juranovic, and Jerome Roussillon in the upcoming European clash on Tuesday due to injuries.

However, Robin Knoche, Rani Khedira, and Alex Kral, who all overcame fitness concerns to feature in Saturday’s match, are expected to be available for selection in this upcoming game.

Kevin Behrens and Robin Gosens, both of whom have scored four goals each this season, are set to be part of the home side’s starting lineup on Tuesday. Additionally, Sheraldo Becker, who has notched three goals this season, is also expected to start.

Turning to Napoli, the key news revolves around Victor Osimhen, who will be unavailable for the next few weeks due to a thigh injury he sustained during international duty with Nigeria.

Furthermore, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Juan Jesus will be absent for the Italian side due to their own injury concerns.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who scored twice against Verona on Saturday, is likely to be joined in the attacking trio by Matteo Politano and Giacomo Raspadori in the upcoming match.
