Union Berlin vs Wurzburger Kickers by Gustav
Union Berlin is looking really well since the restart of the league, since the team has four victories and just one draw away from home, currently standing at third position with just a point less than second placed Hannover and with a boosted morale are going into the battle for top positions that could give them promotion to the Bundesliga for the next season.
In the most recent match, the side won over Munich 1860 in front of own fans with quite comfortable performance as they took a 2:0 three pointer, without being jeopardized much in front of own goal. Hosts took the lead in 41st minute via Skrzybski, while they remained better on the field and looked more concrete, with the visitors from Munich doing almost nothing in attack. Hosts sealed the victory in 61st via Hedlund and remained strong on the field as said. Their only target for this match is another victory as it's the only way to stay with good chances for promotion.
First choice goalkeeper Jakob Busk (22/0) is injured, while sidelined for this match also remain left back Kristian Pedersen (20/0), defensive midfielder Benjamin Kohler (no performance so far in the season), plus central midfielder Dennis Daube (8/1).
Wurzburger Kickers were having a really decent first part of the season, but now it seems that their form is far away from old one and the team should look to improve as soon as possible to get into the second part of the table and not to get into the relegation battle. At least the team improved a bit in the most recent game as they had previous three defeats before taking a point in a home game against Greuther Furth 1:1.
It was a very defensive game from both sides and hte draw was actually a fair outcome, as neither of the teams risked in order to get the victory. Players of Wurzburger took the lead first in 47th via Schrock, but the guests replied just five minutes later via an own goal from Diaz. The team now stands at eight position, but far away from promotional race as well as from relegation battle - currently ten points above red zone placed Arminia Bielefeld.
Their team captain and defender Sebastian Neumann (21/0) is doutbful for this match, while injured remains striker Nejmeddin Daghfous (18/2).
I'm completely sure that Union Berlin has what it takes in order to get the victory here. Motive is on their side, as well as fans, but also a bit of individual quality and form as well. Easy or hard team from Berlin should reach the three pointer.
