In all likelihood, Union will probably kick off with a 3-5-2 system for this game, beginning the first half with Andreas Luthe, Paul Jaeckel, Robin Knoche, Julian Ryerson, Christopher Trimmel, Genki Haraguchi, Rani Khedira, Grischa Proemel, Niko Giesselmann, Sheraldo Becker and Taiwo Awoniyi.

🗞️ Team News: VfL Bochum

Thanks to a completely injury-free squad to choose from, the VfL Bochum manager Thomas Reis doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of before this clash.

We’re of the thinking that Bochum might begin the game with a 4-3-2-1 lineup, starting Michael Esser, Cristian Gamboa, Erhan Masovic, Maxim Leitsch, Danilo Soares, Milos Pantovic, Anthony Losilla, Elvis Rexhbecaj, Takuma Asano, Gerrit Holtmann and Sebastian Polter.

💡 Prediction

It looks to us that Union Berlin should get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.

However, VfL Bochum might well find it a difficult task to break down their defence although we do think it’s probable that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet, too.

Our tip is for a decent 3-1 margin for Union Berlin at the end of the match.

Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
