Winning the Bundesliga and securing a Champion’s League qualification is Union Berlin’s focus

Union Berlin need a positive result from this game, if they are to move their season forward. Their last match resulted in a loss to FC Köln, before that they drew away to Bayern Munich, 1-1.

Also, League leaders Union Berlin keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last four fixtures is astonishing this season, worthy of Champion’s League qualification.

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 have conceded four goals so far, so their defence can be considered to be strong. Union Berlin have a good scoring record this season, with 13 netted so far. Their stand out attacking players have been Sheraldo Becker (5), Sven Michel (2), and Jordan Siebatcheu (2).

With the Bundesliga season well into its stride, Wolfsburg have managed to gain five points

Niko Kovac will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.

Also, suffering three losses in five games is a terrible run of form for any club, Niko Kovac’s Wolfsburg will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. With five points (1W, 3L and 2D), they are established in sixteenth position in the League having won one game, drawn two matches, and lost three fixtures.

Playing away from home, Wolfsburg have won one game and lost two meetings.

A victory for Wolfsburg would put them on 8 points.

Wolfsburg’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Niko Kovac, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.
