The Mercedes Benz Arena sees Sunday action as Stuttgart take on Union Berlin – 7:30pm GMT.

Union Berlin go to the Mercedes Benz Arena with Champion’s League dreams for next season very much alive. They currently sit in first as they take on sixteenth placed Stuttgart.

Stuttgart go into this match with five points secured

Stuttgart will be keen to retain their winning form, having beaten Wolfsburg 3-2 in their last match.

Also, with an unfortunate Stuttgart that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men form is worryingly poor. The Reds should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. They currently stand sixteenth in the League, with five points for a total of 0 wins, 3 losses and 5 draws having drawn five fixtures and lost three games.

Stuttgart have drawn two meetings and lost two games of their four League matches at home this season.

A win in this fixture, would take Stuttgart’s points from 5 to 8, so far this season.

Pellegrino Matarazzo could be missing up to one of their players through injury or illness for the game on Sunday.

League leaders Union Berlin will seek to win every game, this match is no exception

Union Berlin will be hoping to increase their row, after victories over both Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg.

Also, League leaders Union Berlin keep finding ways to win, having secured five victories in their last eight fixtures is astonishing this season, to sit within the reach of a Champion’s League place. They currently sit in first place, top of the League, having accrued 17 points so far this season. This means a record of 5 wins, 1 losses and 2 draws having won five games, drawn two meetings, and lost one game.

Union Berlin have won two fixtures, drawn one game, and lost one game of their four League matches on the road this season.

The ultimate prize this season will be for Union Berlin to finish top of the Bundesliga and secure automatic qualification for the Champion’s League. However, they must play each game as it comes and secure the points, if that is to be achieved.

Good atacking and defensive team

Union Berlin’s defence has been rock solid so far, only conceding six goals in their previous fixtures. This has been a good season so far for Union Berlin, in terms of goals scored (15). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Sheraldo Becker (6), Jordan Siebatcheu (3), and Sven Michel (2).

Further, in six of the last eight meetings between these sides, the result has been a draw. Their most recent encounter in this competition was March 2022 and the score line ended up with a 1-1 draw.
