The defending champions will be hoping to bounce back when they host 3rd in the league table on Sunday evening
After losing to Borussia Mönchengladbach 3-2 in their previous matchup in Bundesliga, Bayern Munich will be aiming for a better outcome this time. Bayern Munich hasn’t had any trouble finding the back of the goal, scoring in each of their past six games after going out to play.
They have amassed 15 during that time and have given away a total of 6. Yet, there is no guarantee that this pattern will continue into the following game. Bayern Munich entered this match with a perfect home record in their previous 17 league games. Very amazing.
The Union Berlin defence has put in a string of standout performances, and as a result, they have only allowed 4 goals in their last 6 games altogether. Their own assault force has scored nine goals over that time. Union Berlin had won their last three away league games into this contest.

Players to watch
Bayern Munich: Jama Musiala
In spite of his young age, Musiala has displayed remarkable confidence and now starts every game for Bayern Munich. He has excellent control and can outmuscle defenders in confined situations. With the German team, Musiala has been a prominent player.
Union Berlin: Danilho Doekhi
Doekhi, a centre-back, has posed the largest threat for the opponent. Union’s threat from corners is 17 per cent higher than the league average due to him, but they still only rank sixth on the list.
- This season, Bayern Munich alone has lost two Bundesliga games, which is their best record at this stage of the campaign in six years.
- With a score of +13.5, Berlin ranks second in the Bundesliga for finishing effectiveness, and the top scorers for each of the competitors set the standard in this area.
Injury and player news
However, Sadio Mane, Lucas Hernandez, Manuel Neuer, and Noussair Mazraoui will not be travelling for Bayern due to ongoing injuries, While Upamecano received a red card against Gladbach, Mane, who hasn’t played since hurting his knee in November, might resume full team training over the upcoming several weeks.
Jordan Siebatcheu is a candidate for a return after Union Berlin drew and won its past two games, although Diogo Leite will need to be examined owing to illness.

Bayern Munich: 4
Union Berlin: 0
Bayern Munich Predicted lineup (4-2-3-1)
Sommer; Cancelo, Bouna Sarr, De Ligt, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Müller, Gnabry; Choupo-Moting
Union Berlin Predicted lineup (3-5-2)
Ronnow; Doekhi, Knoche, Leite; Juranovic, Laidouni, Khedira, Haberer, Roussillon; Behrens, Becker
We believe Bayern Munich will most likely maintain control for extended periods of time and should be able to capitalise on a couple of the opportunities they create. Union Berlin may also struggle to score a goal of their own, but we do not foresee them doing so.
Prediction: Bayern Munich 2-1 Union Berlin
