As the German Bundesliga 2021-22 fixtures resume after the international break, F. C. Cologne is all set to travel to the capital city of Berlin, as it takes on hosts Union Berlin in matchweek 28.
Playing in its third-ever Bundesliga season, Union Berlin had surprised everyone with its initial performances but has stuttered as it headed into the international break, winning just 1 out of its last 7 games. It has, however, managed to secure a place in the DFB POKAL semi-finals, and will be looking to gain some momentum before it battles Leipzig for a spot in the finals.
Talking about its last game, Union was thrashed 4-0 by table-toppers Bayern Munich. As a result of its dismal performances off late, Union is currently at the 9th spot on the points table. The club has finished 7th in the last season, and will definitely like to improve on that record this time around, and even aim for a European finish. But with just 7 games to go, time is running out fast for Urs Fischer.
F. C. Cologne is in better form and has lost just 1 of its last 5 games. The club managed to hold second-placed Borussia Dortmund to a draw in its last outing and will be feeling pretty confident as it heads to Berlin. The club is currently sitting on the 7th spot on the points table, 4 points behind 6th placed Hoffenheim, and 5 points behind 4th placed Leipzig. With 7 matches yet to go, most football betting sites are predicting that Cologne can realistically aim for a top 4 finish.
Match prediction and betting tips for Union Berlin vs 1. F. C. Cologne, Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei, Berlin, on 1st April 2022.
As both the teams battle to grab a place within the top 6, this promises to be an engaging encounter. To his advantage, Cologne boss Steffen Baumgart has a fully fit squad at his disposal. As for the hosts, Christopher Trimmel and Levin Oztunali are isolating after testing positive for the coronavirus and will be unavailable for selection in this game. Given the past record of both the teams, we predict that the hosts hold an upper hand here.
Bet on Union Berlin to win.
Union Berlin has had a dismal defensive record of late, and this gives the opportunity to the visitors to score at least once. Also, both teams have scored at least one goal in the last 5 encounters against each other. We think that it would be the case for this game too.
