Union Berlin vs. Borussia Dortmund Match Analysis and Prediction

Borussia Dortmund is on a mission to change their current form as Bundesliga contenders this week as they travel to take on Union Berlin. The match schedules for Friday at An der alten Forsterei with kickoff at 10:30 pm.

Dortmund will be looking to build on their 2-1 win at Werder Bremen on Tuesday night, while Union Berlin ended in a 2-2 hard-fought battle draw to Stuggart without their top scorer Max Kruse.

The impact of Max Kruse was evident in helping the side push through the league matches. However, a torn muscle injury for the top scorer spelled doom for the side. In a twist of events, the side’s negative impact turned around with two successive draws to Bayern Munich and Stuggart.

There is no denying that Max Kruse has been one of the most stand-out players of the Bundesliga this season. Despite the absence of the 32-year-old, Urs Fischer’s side has been impressive with drawing against two of the most dominating teams in the division.

After sacking Lucien Favre following an embarrassing 5-1 home defeat to Stuttgart last weekend, interim manager Edin Terzic promised attacking football ahead of their clash and trip to Bremen.

Terzic knows how a trip to Berlin will prove a hard test in his managerial role on Friday night. Better performance will be needed to regain their chances of a top-four finish.
