Union Berlin Odds
When Union Berlin kicked down the door of the Bundesliga last season and won out against Dortmund in a convincing 3:1 home game, it was clear to everyone that they were in for an exciting season. This team shot up from the depths of Germany’s regional leagues near the start of the decade. They stabilized in the 2nd flight for a few years before entering the Bundesliga for the first time ever last season. This wasn’t much of a surprise at the time – but their final 11th position certainly was.
Urs Fischer is the architect behind this sudden rise, and he’s done quite a job refitting the squad to be on par with the best in the country. When it comes to betting on Union Berlin matches, though, things can get a bit complicated. There simply isn’t much information to base Bundesliga predictions. Although last season’s performance indicates that a Top 10 Finish is not beyond reach, it’s pricing at 4.00 doesn’t instil much confidence.
Union Berlin Key Players
The key to Union’s success lies in the clever mix Fischer created of experienced Bundesliga veterans and promising young internationals. That said, many of them were on loan, which leaves the current squad in a precarious position.
The duo of goalkeeper Loris Karius and centre-forward Taiwo Awoniyi have been loaned from Liverpool. Awoniyi is likely there to replace Sebastian Andersson, who performed quite well with 12 goals and 3 assists last season. Max Kruse was signed as a Second Striker and is the definition of a seasoned Bundesliga player. Along with Wolfsburg’s centre-back Robin Knoche, the roster is already shaping up to be far beyond the scope of most freshly promoted teams. Robert Andrich will be continuing his career with Union Midfielder, which will be important in bringing the lineup together.
Union Berlin Rivalry
As a club from Berlin obviously derby match will be against Hertha. They have not met in league football till now, and it will be interesting to see what will happen in this game.
Union Berlin History
During the Cold War, Union was in East Berlin and now they became the fifth club from East Germany to reach Bundesliga, and the first from East Berlin. They are well known for their fans and the atmosphere in the stadium. Although it is a small one with only around 20.000 seats, atmosphere is frantic and fans will give their team a boost every time they play at home. One of the interesting facts is that they organized World Cup Living Room during World Cup 2014 when they invited fans to bring their sofas to the stadium and watch games together. They become really famous around the world for this.
