*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Bayer Leverkusen took a massive step towards the Bundesliga title last weekend when they beat Hoffenheim and closest challengers Bayern Munich lost at home to Dortmund. Die Werkself are now odds-on favourites to land their first ever domestic crown and they have also been priced to win at Union Berlin and bookies are giving them a 65.2% chance of landing all three points.

Our top football predictions are all weighted in Bayer Leverkusen’s favour due in part to Union’s underwhelming run of one win in five assisgnments.

Bayer Leverkusen hammered Union Berlin 4-0 in November and Die Werkself are unbeaten in six straight encounters with the Iron Ones overall. The corresponding fixture between the teams last season finished 0-0.

Union Berlin preview: Union could be unchanged

Jerome Roussillon, Jakob Busk and Janik Haberer are in the treatment room for Union Berlin. With those three options out, Union could stick with the same XI that drew at Eintracht Frankfurt last week.

Predicted lineup: Ronnow – Doekhi, Vogt, Leite – Trimmel, Tousart, Khedira, Gosens – Vertessen, Aaronson – Kaufmann

Union Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen prediction

Player to watch – Florian Wirtz

Florian Wirtz is considered a generational German talent and the attacking midfielder scored twice for Leverkusen in midweek in Die Werkself’s 4-0 cup semi-final triumph over league-league Dusseldorf, taking his tally up to 13 goals in all competitions for the campaign.

Wirtz to lead the charge again?

Alongside netting seven goals in the Bundesliga this season, Wirtz has lodged ten assists in the German top tier and only his teammate Alex Grimaldo (11) and Dortmund’s Julian Brandt (11) have created more goals this term. Wirtz has the skills to do some more damage for Leverkusen against Union Berlin on Saturday.
