Union Berlin and RB Leipzig lock horns in their last match of the season this Saturday at Stadion An der Alten Forterei with kickoff at 16:30.
Union Berlin come into this match on the back of a 1-1 draw at Leverkusen and are desperate for the three points to book a place in the Europa Conference League. Given that this is Union Berlin’s second ever season in the Bundesliga in the club’s history the thought of appearing and competing in European football feels like a dream to them and their fans.
A year ago, Union Berlin were number 12 in the table with 38 points and now they are sitting at position seven with 47 points o only a point above the 8th placed Borussia Monchengladbach and two points above Stuttgart and Freiburg who both have 45 points but Stuttgart has a higher goal difference. All the three teams are capable of leapfrogging above Union Berlin on the final game of the season. Therefore, Union berlin need to win against Leipzig to keep their Europa League hope alive.
Meanwhile, Leipzig are in position 2 in the league table with 65 points and will finish in this position regardless of the results and will be playing for pride when they head into this game. However, recently things have not been good for Leipzig as they have not won in any of last three games and only collecting one point as they drew 2-2 against Wolfsburg last weekend.
Leipzig will be looking to return to winning ways as Union Berlin have not won any of their last four games against them.
