Union Berlin: Best Shot Efficiency
With league leaders Union Berlin hosting Dortmund and second-placed Freiburg visiting reigning champions Bayern Munich, Bundesliga offers us an exciting ‘Super Sunday’ so if you’re betting online, make sure you follow us as we’re ready to cash big.
Union opened a two-point lead at the top of the standings following a 1-0 win against Stuttgart last time out, extending their best-ever start in the domestic league. They have been superbly clinical in the final third and have the best shot efficiency in the German top-flight league. On top of that, they are rock solid at the back, having the best defense in the league, with just six goals allowed in nine games. They’ve lost just once this season, two rounds ago on the road against Eintracht Frankfurt.
They also recovered in the Europa League, keeping their qualification hopes alive after a double win against Malmo. Unfortunately, they played their best starting lineup against Malmo on Thursday, and they will probably be a bit tired as they are not used to playing every three days.
The collective spirit present for years in the stands has manifested itself on the pitch, and Union’s players will again give their soul on the pitch. Their attacking duo is enjoying a superb season. Sheraldo Becker and Jordan Siebatcheu have scored nine goals and offered five assists between them. Both Tim Maciejewski and Timo Baumgartl are pushing for recalls after recovering from covid, while Kevin Mohwald remains on the sidelines with an injury.
Dortmund: Ups and Downs
Dortmund will arrive in the German capital high on confidence after keeping reigning champs Bayern Munich to a 2-2 draw last weekend, with Anthony Modeste scoring the equalizer in the final seconds of the game. On top of that, they picked up one point in the Champions League midweek action against Sevilla, almost earning a knockout stages spot.
Midfielder Jude Bellingham, who has excelled in the Dortmund engine room this season, is once again the player to watch for the visitors. He scored in all four UEFA Champions League games this season, but he’s yet to find the back of the net in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund is sitting fourth in the standings with 16 points picked up in nine games. They will be without Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, Mahmoud Dahoud, Sebastien Haller, and Mateu Morey, while captain Marco Reus is rated as doubtful. They have great attacking firepower and are fully packed with young and talented players, so we will include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Union Berlin vs Dortmund Head-to-Head

Union Berlin vs Dortmund Prediction
The visitors enter this clash as slight favorites priced at +140 on the three-way Moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
Given Dortmund’s road struggles and Union Berlin’s great home record, we expect a really close encounter that can go either way, so make sure you avoid the winners’ market. Both teams played European games this week, but Dortmund has two extra resting days, which might be important for this clash. The goal line is set a bit low, so we will take advantage of that, as we expect at least three goals in the match.
