Union Berlin vs Kaiserslautern Prediction & Betting tips
Union – Lautern, two losers from Tuesday, who can not be satisfied with the previous season. The 1. FC Union Berlin has started as a favorite with the promotion, but now with nine points from seven games is only in the table center field. There, the 1. FC Kaiserslautern would like to be, the only second league still without victory and with lean two points carrier of the red lantern.
In 2009 both clubs met for the first time. In the meantime there are 13 duels, of which six draws ended. Union have still to catch up with five wins of the FCK with only two successes. In Berlin the statistics are balanced with two wins and three draws.
Union Berlin :
After fourth place at the end of the pre-season, 1. FC Union Berlin underlined its position as a promotion with a very good preparation, in which all eight test games were won. The season kick-off also ended with a win at FC Ingolstadt (1: 0) and SV Sandhausen (4: 3) as well as a 2-1 win after the first round of the DFB Cup at 1. FC Saarbrücken. After that, Union also had a long time on the Siegerstrasse at 1. FC Nürnberg, but the 2-2 was close to the end, which meant a break in the season. After that, the Iron against Arminia Bielefeld did not get beyond a 1-1 draw and conceded with Fortuna Düsseldorf 2: 3 the first season. Afterwards Eintracht Braunschweig was not able to get a 1-1 draw at home against Eintracht Braunschweig.
After five changes before the match in Sandhausen, changes of similar size are conceivable. Christopher Trimmel, Simon Hedlund, and Sebastian Polter were able to start again. It is open, whether it was enough for Toni Leistner and Felix Kroos, who had to play on Tuesday. Marc Torrejon and Kenny Prince Redondo are missing.
Provisional lineup: Busk – Uchida, Leistner, Schoenheim, Pedersen – Kroos, Kreilach – Hartel – Skrzybski, Polter, Hedlund
The 1. FC Kaiserslautern has played a thorough preparation, but at the end of the season confidence was still in the season. But then came the start with a 3-0 loss at 1. FC Nuremberg powerful next to it. The home crowd against SV Darmstadt 98 then went on with a 1: 1 tidy and then the FCK in the DFB Cup with the SV Eichede (4-0) no naked. For a lasting upwards trend, however, this trophy success did not cause, as subsequently Lautern lost with Fortuna Düsseldorf with 0: 2. Against Eintracht Braunschweig it was still a 1: 1, but this should remain the last point to this day. For Holstein Kiel (1: 2), with SV Sandhausen (0: 1) and now also against Erzgebirge Aue (0-2) on Tuesday, it put three defeats in a row. The separation of coach Norbert Meier was the logical consequence. It remains to be seen whether this measure will release forces.
Kacper Przybylko is still hurt, while Mads Albaek and Daniel Halfar are hoping for a comeback.
Prospective installation: Müller – Kessel, Vucur, Correia, Guwara – Moritz, Ziegler – Shipnoski, Atik, Osei Kwadwo – Andersson
