Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich Prediction & Match Preview

Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 12 December 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei.

Bayern Munich have won just one of their last three Bundesliga games, which by their high standards is a bad run! Nevertheless, they have only lost one of their last 30, so they will not be too concerned. 

This could be another tricky assignment for the champions away to Union Berlin, who have arguably been the surprise package in Germany’s top flight so far this season. 

That said, their eight-game unbeaten run did end at local rivals Hertha last Friday and they are missing influential top scorer Max Kruse, who has been a big part of their success following his move in the summer. 

With key players like Robert Lewandowski and Kingsley Coman completely rested in the Champions League in midweek, Bayern should win this one pretty comfortably.

Team News:

Andrich will miss the visit of Bayern due to beginning his suspension after his red card in last weekend's Berlin derby, with Christopher Trimmel set to join him on the suspension list if he picks up one more yellow card.

An even bigger blow is the loss of Max Kruse for up to eight weeks, after the club's top goalscorer tore a muscle bundle. Anthony Ujah (knee), Christian Gentner (muscle) and Joel Pohjanpalo (ankle) are also all out through injury.

Bayern will continue to be without the services of Joshua Kimmich after the midfielder sustained meniscus damage last month. Javi Martinez is also unavailable for the trip to Berlin due to a hamstring injury.

However, Flick was boosted by the return of full-back Alphonso Davies against Lokomotiv Moscow, with Lewandowski set to return to the side after being rested in Europe once again.

Union Berlin possible starting lineup:
Luthe; Freidrich, Knoche, Ryerson; Trimmel, Griesbeck, Promel, Lenz; Ingvartsen, Awoniyi, Becker

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Sule, Alaba; Goretzka, Roca; Gnabry, Muller, Coman; Lewandowski
