Only Two Games Left in the Bundesliga!

UEFA Champions League Ticket on the Line!

Yes, Bayern Munich already won the title. Yes, Borussia Dortmund already secured a spot in the UEFA Champions League, however, there are five teams fighting for the remaining two tickets. I haven’t seen such a dispute since Willy Wonka gave out tickets to visit the factory!

Freiburg and Union Berlin are among those five teams. Therefore, you can rest assured this is Bundesliga’s Game of the Week. Here’s another reason – despite not having lost in their last five games, the visitors come in as the betting online underdogs at +300.

Let’s check the latest news, stats, injury reports, and Bundesliga odds for Freiburg vs Union Berlin. We’ve plenty of soccer predictions for you to consider.

Freiburg’s in Driver’s Seat

If the season ended today, Freiburg would qualify for the UEFA Champions League. The Black and Whites currently sit in fourth place with one point advantage over fifth. That means all they have to do is win the two remaining games.

Freiburg’s last match was a goal-fest. The Black and Whites defeated Hoffenheim 4-3. We told you to pick Freiburg at +185! Anyway, Roland Sallai, Christian Gunter, Lucas Holer, and Jeon Woo-Yeong were the scorers.

Including the DFB Pokal Semifinals, which was the Black and Whites fifth game in a row without losing. We’re talking about one of the DFB Pokal Finalists, and if that isn’t enough, they scored three or more goals in four of those games.

The Black and Whites have been an even more productive soccer pick when playing at home thanks to an 8-5-3 record. They lost only one of their last nine games and it was against Bayern Munich. Everyone loses against Bayern Munich, right?

Besides playing at home and being on a winning streak, the price (-110) also makes Freiburg a very interesting option.

Union Berlin on a Roll

Regarding the Bundesliga, Union Berlin is the only team that hasn’t lost in its last five games. Like Freiburg, its last defeat was against Bayern Munich.

Most recently, they drew 1-1 to Greuther Furth, a game that the Iron Ones should have won. Not only because Greuther Furth sits in last place, but also because they won possession and finished with more shots on target.

Union Berlin’s numbers on the road aren’t the best, 5-4-7, but the Iron Ones won their last two games. First, they defeated Hertha Berlin 4-1. Later, they defeated RB Leipzig 2-1. They were huge soccer betting underdogs (+475) against Leipzig.

Offensively, Taiwo Awoniyi has been leading the way. He’s the team’s top scorer with 13 goals. He’s followed by Grischa Promel with six goals. In other words, Union Berlin really needs Awoniyi to have a good day.

As mentioned before, the Iron Ones are offering a +300 price in the sportsbook. A $400 payout for every $100 wagered doesn’t sound bad, right?

Freiburg vs Union Berlin Prediction

With a ticket to the UEFA Champions League at stake, I expect a thrilling match. That doesn’t mean I expect a goal-fest, but I do expect both to score. Enough for the total to go over. After all, Freiburg averages 1.7 goals per game, while Union Berlin averages 1.3 goals per game. Plus, as top scorers, Awoniyi and Vincenzo Grifo (Freiburg) are eager to prove they deserve a new contract.
