Leipzig will be posting the capital club Union Berlin for the second time in a span of 3 days, this time for the home fixture in the German Bundesliga 2021-22 season.
Leipzig currently has its hands full, as it is advancing in both, the Europa League as well as the DFB Pokal. After hosting Berlin for two consecutive games, Leipzig will also be hosting Rangers for the first leg of the Europa League semi-finals.
Talking about the domestic league, Leipzig is in prime form and is unbeaten in its last 9 games, picking up 23 of a possible 27 points. As a result, the team has steadily climbed up the points table and is currently 3rd on the points table. While the top spot is now out of question, Leipzig would like to create some distance from 5th placed Freiburg, which is just 3 points behind. In its last match, Leipzig fought well against Leverkusen, and a nick by Szoboszlai in the 69th minute proved to be the difference between the two teams.
However, for most football betting sites, Leipzig starts this game as the overwhelming favorite.
For a club playing its third-ever Bundesliga, Union Berlin has played extremely well. It will face Leipzig on the back of 3 consecutive wins in the top flight, against Cologne, Hertha, and Frankfurt. Those 9 points mean that. Union is now in 6th place on the points table, leading Cologne by 1 point.
With 4 games still to go, Union can still aim for a Champions League finish, which is 5 points away. Union Berlin hosted Frankfurt for its last game, and thanks to first-half goals by Awoniyi and Promel, managed to sail easily to a victory.
Match prediction and football betting tips for RB Leipzig vs Union Berlin Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Red Bull Arena, Leipzig, on 23rd April 2022.
Having faced each other just a couple of days back, the players, as well as the coaches, will be pretty well versed with the strengths and the weaknesses of their opponents, making this game an interesting to watch.
Leipzig is likely to miss out on Amadou Haidara, who has been sitting out since March, while Yussuf Poulsen is doubtful after picking up an injury in the game against Leverkusen.
The visitors are likely to play without Keita Endo, Anthony Ujah as well as first-choice goalkeeper Andreas Luthe due to various injuries.
Despite playing well throughout the season, we do not expect Union Berlin to win this game.
Bet on RB Leipzig to win.
Leipzig has defended its half well this season, conceding just 31 goals in 30 games. It has kept a clean sheet in 3 of its last 4 games, and we expect them to do the same in this match too. The odds are pretty attractive considering the defensive strengths that both teams have shown.
Christopher Nkunku has scored 17 goals thus far in the season and is 4th on the list of top scorers for the season. Nkunku trails Haaland by just 1 goal and has a great opportunity to equalize in this match.
