Ten-man Union Berlin Secure Point Against VfL Bochum; Aim to Match Club Record of 16 Wins vs Monchengladbach
Ten-man Union Berlin played out a 1-1 draw with VfL Bochum last weekend. Josip Juranovic gave Berlin an early advantage but Kevin Stoger scored from the penalty spot to restore parity for Bochum at 55’P. Union failed to capitalize on Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund’s slipups to narrow the gap on them; as they remained third with 52 points from 15 wins, 7 draws, and 6 losses; five and seven points behind Dortmund respectively. Union Berlin have amassed 52 points from 28 games so far this Bundesliga campaign and stand at 52 from 28 matches, winning 14 out of 28. A victory against Monchengladbach would match their club record of 16 wins set during 2021-22 season; all six defeats have occurred away from home though Urs Fischer is expected to use 3-5-2 formation with Kevin Behrens and Sheraldo Becker as attackers; Paul Jaeckel will not play due to red card against Bochum while Andras Schafer may miss due to suspension after his red card against Bochum while Andras Schafer may play.
Borussia Monchengladbach Extend Unbeaten Streak to Four Games Ahead of Union Berlin Clash
Borussia Monchengladbach have extended their unbeaten streak to four games after drawing 1-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend. Jonas Hofmann scored for Monchengladbach early, off a Marcus Thuram assist. However, Randal Kolo Muani equalized late for Eagles courtesy of an assist from Marcus Thuram in 83′ – drawing level at 1-1 and placing Monchengladbach in 10th place with 36 points from 9 wins, 9 draws, and 10 losses. Monchengladbach have currently enjoyed their longest unbeaten streak since January 2021 (six games). They remain undefeated through four matches but only managed one victory out of their seven league outings (1W, 4D & 2L). As Union visit, they’ll look to capture all three points for themselves. Monchengladbach have had great success recently at home, currently enjoying a five-game unbeaten streak since starting the 2021/22 season [also five]. Daniel Farke will face an uphill task against Union Berlin as only one of their seven Bundesliga meetings has resulted in victory [1W, 2D & 4L]. Once again, taking the lead doesn’t guarantee maximum points for Farke’s Foals; they have dropped 16 points from winning positions this season, with only Augsburg [21 points] doing worse. He should lineup with Marcus Thuram leading their attack; Tony Jantschke is out, while Alassane Plea and Yvandro Sanches remain questionable for this weekend’s encounter.
