*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Union Berlin are just three points clear of the drop zone and their haul of just one point from the last nine on offer has left them low on confidence ahead of their meeting with Bayern Munich on Saturday evening.

Last week, the visitors relinquished their Bundesliga title for the first time in a decade, though they can still finish the campaign strongly and the bookies have given Bayern a 63.6% chance of winning in the capital this weekend. Our top football predictions have also forecast a positive outing for Thomas Tuchel’s charges.

Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich prediction
The versatile Raphaël Guerreiro could have a big role in Saturday's clash – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Raphaël Guerreiro

Raphaël Guerreiro has been showcasing his versatility in recent weeks, and the 30-year-old rattled the net from a position in midfield against Cologne last weekend. Guerreiro could be deployed in a more natural berth at left back on Saturday.

Guerreiro can have a big role to play

Portuguese star Guerreiro has started only 11 times in the Bundesliga this season, though he has still managed to chip in with 11 goals despite playing as a defender in the majority of his appearances in the division. Guerreiro has a knack for producing match-changing moments from deep areas, and he could be a central figure again on Saturday.
