Union Berlin vs Schalke Prediction
It has not been the best of times for Union Berlin since the beginning of March with just two points earned from their six Bundesliga matches, although both were collected at their Stadion An der Alten Forsterei. Bayern Munich only managed a 2-0 victory at the venue last month. Despite a recent slump in form, Union have proved to be a decent home team this season with six wins earned, although they will enter this game having been well beaten last weekend when losing 4-1 at Borussia Monchengladbach.
As for visitors Schalke, avoiding a fifth successive defeat will be a priority and they are probably wishing that the Bundesliga had not restarted. Schalke lost just three league matches before the Winter break but they have not recovered from a 5-0 loss at Bayern Munich suffered during late January with no subsequent wins earned. Yet there were signs of battling qualities emerging during the second half of a weekend 1-0 defeat by Werder Bremen, although their performance during the opening period was a cause for concern.
Union Berlin will start slight favourites for this game but that position probably reflects the dire recent form of their opponents. The visitors have failed to win on the road since the beginning of December and have scored just one away goal this year. With Union failing to net in just one of five previous home matches, the first of our Union Berlin vs Schalke bets is for a home win with Under 2.5 goals scored.
Union Berlin to Win and Under 2.5 goals scored – 4/1 with bet365.
Union Berlin vs Schalke Correct Score Prediction
- 0-0 draw – 8/1
- 1-1 draw – 11/2
- Union Berlin win 1-0 – 13/2
- Union Berlin win 2-0 – 10/1
- Union Berlin win 2-1 – 10/1
- Schalke to win 1-0 – 15/2
A lack of goals and creativity has been a worrying feature of Schalke performances since the resumption of Bundesliga action. Just a single goal has been netted in four matches and only one was scored in the five competitive matches before the lockdown. Losing against lower league teams Werder Bremen, Fortuna Dusseldorf and Augsburg in their last three matches will also be an additional worry for Head Coach David Wagner.
Hosts Union Berlin will begin this game winless in seven competitive matches and they are drifting closer to the relegation zone. Yet they did face in-form teams Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin in their two matches after the restart and claimed a useful 1-1 draw with Mainz in their subsequent fixture after being reduced to ten players. Union will have lost some confidence in recent weeks but they currently seem more capable in attack than their visitors. Therefore, the next of our Union Berlin vs Schalke fixtures is for a 1-0 home win at odds of 13/2 with Bet365.
Union Berlin to win 1-0 – 13/2 with bet365.
Union Berlin vs Schalke First Goalscorer Tip
- Sebastian Andersson – 5/1
- Anthony Ujah – 6/1
- Marcus Ingvartsen – 13/2
- Ahmed Kutucu – 15/2
- Benito Raman – 15/2
- Guido Burgstaller – 15/2
With very few goals tipped to be scored in this game, the odds for a First Goalscorer appear more tempting than an Anytime scorer. As Schalke are clearly struggling in attack, it may be worth looking at Union players particularly Sebastian Andersson. The Swedish forward has scored twelve league goals this term but he also opened the scoring during a 2-1 win at Eintracht Frankfurt and a 2-2 home draw with Wolfsburg. Both games were played during late February and early March respectively. Andersson also netted the only Union goal at Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend.
Therefore, our third and final bet is for Sebastian Andersson to be First Goalscorer.
Sebastian Andersson to be First Goalscorer – 5/1 with bet365.
