Union Berlin faces Koln
We are heading our attention to the German capital Berlin where Union Berlin faces Koln in a game from the 14th round of the Bundesliga. We will try to give you some good insights about this match in our free football betting tips for the weekend.
Because of the three consecutive wins they managed to record, now Union Berlin are 11th in the league with 16 points won. These 9 points they managed to win in three games really helped them improve their current situation in the standings.
Union’s run of consecutive wins was stopped last week when they suffered a 1-2 defeat during their visit to Schalke 04 in Gelsenkirchen. The Danish winger Marcus Ingvartsen scored for the visitors from a penalty kick, but Schalke scored a late winner in the 86th minute which secured them all of the points. It was really a bad luck for Union that they didn’t win at least a point at the Veltins Arena.
Koln are in the relegation zone of the Bundesliga. Before this round the Billy Goats find themselves at 17th place with just 8 points won. Just as we expected this is going to be a tough season for them.
In their last five games in the Bundesliga Koln are pretty awful – four losses and just one point won against Augsburg. This happened in the previous round when the Billy Goats avoided losing at home with a late equaliser from the Colombian Jhon Cordoba. But we can say it was another mediocre performance by Koln.
Against Union Berlin Koln will be without the services of the suspended Rafael Czichos and Jonas Hector. Meanwhile Jorge Mere, Matthias Bader and Christian Clemens are recovering from injuries.
In our free football betting tips for the weekend we think that Union Berlin are in a very strong favourite position against Koln on Sunday. It’d be a surprise if they don’t win this one.
