Union Berlin Team News

Union came close to their first Bundesliga victory since mid-March after taking a two-goal lead against Cologne but ended up losing 3-2. This put them in a precarious position ahead of the final day of the season. After Nenad Bjelica left the club in early May, Marco Grote took charge of the team for the second time this season and hopes for one last effort against Freiburg.

Results from the previous round saw Mainz overtaking Union after defeating Borussia Dortmund 3-0, while Cologne’s comeback against Union further heightened relegation concerns. Fans heading to the Forsterei are hoping for maximum points to break a streak of three consecutive home defeats and preserve their status in the league. A Union loss and a Cologne win in Heidenheim could mean the Union finishing second to last, while a Union win and a Mainz loss in Wolfsburg would ensure their survival in the league.

Rani Khedira will not be available for the next match after receiving a yellow card in Union’s last game against Cologne. Kevin Vogt is doubtful due to injury, while Jakob Busk is not expected to play. Kiliann Sildillia remains suspended following his red card against Wolfsburg at the end of April.

Freiburg Team News

Despite the home team’s desire for success, Freiburg has its own goal to end Christian Streich’s era at the club with a victory, potentially securing European football for the team from the Black Forest. Eighth place could earn them entry into the Conference League if Bayer Leverkusen defeats Kaiserslautern in the DFB-Pokal final, meaning the seventh-placed team would secure a spot in the Europa League.

However, Streich hopes to surpass Hoffenheim, who are playing against Bayern Munich on the final day, aiming to end his twelve-year tenure at the club on a positive note, which remains a possibility if Freiburg wins on Saturday and Bayern defeats Hoffenheim. Traveling fans have reason for optimism, as they have gone over two months without a defeat away from home since a 2-1 loss in Augsburg at the end of February. The current streak includes three wins and one draw, with clean sheets in victories against Borussia Mönchengladbach, Darmstadt, and Cologne.

Streich must cope with several absent players, as Matthias Ginter, Manuel Gulde, Daniel-Kofi Kyereh, Philipp Lienhart, Merlin Rohl, and Kenneth Schmidt are missing this weekend. Ritsu Doan has scored goals in Freiburg’s wins against Gladbach and Darmstadt, and the winger could have an impact on Saturday’s game on the right side of the field.

Union Berlin vs Freiburg Prediction

Given the need for both teams to win this match and the fact that Freiburg is a slight favorite, it would be wise to avoid betting on the winner, especially since Union is playing at home. Instead, we suggest betting on the option “Both teams to score” and that there will be at least three goals in total in the match. We expect the game to be open, with plenty of goal-scoring opportunities on both sides of the field.

Kick-off Time: Saturday, 18.05.2024, 3:30 PM Local Time (GMT +1), 15:30 CET

Prediction: Over 2.5 & both teams to score

Odds (when tipped): 2.30
