*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Union Berlin lost for the second time on the bounce when they were defeated at highflying Stuttgart last time out, though the bookies have priced them to rebound on Saturday and the Iron Ones have a 50% chance of securing a victory. Werder Bremen have also lost two games in a row in the Bundesliga and have dropped into the division’s bottom half as a result.

Today’s football predictions favour Union in the main, though Werder have only lost one of their last six matches on the road and shouldn’t be discounted completely. View more German football analysis on our betting insights page.

Union Berlin vs Werder Bremen prediction

Player to watch – Danilho Doekhi

Danilho Doekhi performed solidly or Union Berlin last weekend in the Iron Ones’ loss at Stuttgart and though he was unable to help his team to a clean sheet, the Dutch defender did complete a game-high eight clearances.

Doekhi will need to excel again

25-year-old Doekhi has been averaging 1.3 tackles and 1.7 interceptions per game in the Bundesliga this season and the centre-half will need to defend on the front foot again to help Union Berlin to victory against a dogged Werder Bremen outfit on Saturday.
