Today's Predictions for Union Berlin vs Schalke

Union Berlin have won five games on the spin ahead of their latest Bundesliga test against rock-bottom Schalke 04 on Sunday. Read our top Union Berlin vs Schalke predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Union Berlin to Win

Union Berlin seem to have found their swagger again since the campaign’s winter break and the Iron Ones have resumed their Bundesliga title charge with a run of five straight wins in the division. Urs Fischer’s side are now just one point behind current leaders Bayern Munich and they can put the squeeze on the Bavarians with another victory on Sunday. Schalke are rock bottom of the league following a return of just two wins from 20 assignments and our first Union Berlin vs Schalke prediction recommends opposing them in the match result market.

Over 1.5 Union Berlin Goals

High-flying Union Berlin managed to score at least twice in each of their last five Bundesliga matches and their consistency in the final third should allow them to create more chances against a generous Schalke defence on Sunday. In the reverse fixture between the teams back in August, Union smashed six goals past Schalke and though they might not rack up quite as meaty a win this weekend, they still look good value to score over 1.5 times against the relegation favourites again.

Union Berlin vs Schalke Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Union Berlin vs Schalke lineups and team news for Sunday’s Bundesliga clash below.

Union Berlin

Keeper Jakob Busk has a cold and might not take part on Sunday while attacker Andras Schafer is nursing a foot injury and is expected to miss out. Union Berlin played a Europa League tie at Ajax on Thursday evening and they performed well in an eventual 0-0 draw in Amsterdam. Union could go top of the Bundesliga if results go their way this weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Union Berlin: Ronnow – Doekhi, Knoche, Leite – Juranovic, Laidouni, Khedira, Thorsby, Roussilon – Becker, Behrens

Schalke

Schalke have a few injuries to contend with at present with Alexander Schwolow, Tim Starke, Sebastian Polter and Justin Heekeren all listed as absent. Mortiz Jenz, Marcin Kaminski and Sepp van den Berg are all considered doubtful. Schalke have drawn 0-0 in three Bundesliga fixtures in a row.

Predicted Lineup for Schalke: Fahrmann – Brunner, Yoshida, Jenz, Uronen – Kral, Krauß, Kozuki, Zalazar, Bulter – Frey

Player to Watch – Josip Juranovic

Union Berlin’s signing of right back Josip Juranovic from Scottish champions Celtic in January was considered a bit of a coup, especially for the modest £7.5m fee they paid for the Croatian. The 27-year-old has already lodged his first assist for Union, despite featuring just twice in the Bundesliga so far and Juranovic should strengthen the club’s title bid between now and May.
