Team News: Union Berlin
Union Berlin boss Urs Fischer will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all ahead of this game with a fully healthy squad to choose from.
We think that Union will probably use a 3-5-1-1 formation for this one, handing starts to Andreas Luthe, Marvin Friedrich, Robin Knoche, Nico Schlotterbeck, Christopher Trimmel, Christian Gentner, Grischa Prömel, Robert Andrich, Niko Giebelmann, Marius Bülter and Cedric Teuchert.
Team News: Augsburg
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group of players, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Augsburg manager Heiko Herrlich to be concerned about. Jan Morávek (Muscle Injury) won’t be playing here.
From our viewpoint, Augsburg might play in a 4-4-2 lineup, settling for Rafal Gikiewicz, Raphael Framberger, Felix Uduokhai, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, Iago, Daniel Caligiuri, Carlos Gruezo, Rani Khedira, Ruben Vargas, Florian Niederlechner and Alfred Finnbogason.
We think that Augsburg will really need to work well to register a score against this Union Berlin team who we think will manage to score & go ahead.
We’re therefore anticipating a 1-0 win for Union Berlin at the end of the 90.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
