Würzburger Kickers vs Union Berlin Match preview GERMANY 2. Bundesliga


Wurzburger Kickers won a third consecutive match on Friday, returning home from Greuther Furth with a 3-0 victory. Bernd Hollerbach's charges were as organised as ever at the back and never looked like conceding, while up front they were incisive and, above all, clinical.

That is a potent combination, and with almost a full squad to choose from ahead of this home game, where the Kickers are unbeaten this season, the hosts will be confident of extending their unbeaten run to five matches.

They will not have things all their own way, however. Union Berlin are also in fine fettle and likewise come into this game unbeaten in four and having won their last two. They battled hard to earn a 2-1 win away to 1860 Munich on Matchday 5 and did well not to concede again after going down to ten men in the 53rd minute. Furthermore, Union have one of the best attacking units in the division, with 13 scored so far.

With two of the league's most in-form teams going against each other, this match promises plenty of goals, and given the visitors' vulnerability at the back (nine goals against), I believe the hosts will manage to edge it.


This will be the first competitive match between these sides.


Wurzburger Kickers coach Bernd Hollerbach stuck to the 'never change a winning team' mantra on Matchday 5, keeping faith with the same XI that head beaten Bochum in their previous outing. Following another impressive win on Friday – defeating Greuther Furth 3-0 away – he is unlikely to rotate his line-up here.

Right-back David Pissot scored twice in that game, so is certain to play again, as is attacker Nejmeddin Daghfous (two assists), while the only definite absentee is centre-back Franko Uzelac.

Given the length of Union Berlin's injury list I do not expect coach Jens Keller to do much tinkering either. One enforced change will be in defence, as centre-back Fabian Schonheim is suspended after he was sent off for a second bookable offence on Matchday 5.

Pacy attacker Kenny Redondo, who started on Friday for the first time since Matchday 2, should have done enough to keep his place in the team after scoring one and making the other as Union beat 1860 Munich 2-1
