After blasting Eintracht Frankfurt out of this season's DFB-Pokal with a 4-1 win on Tuesday evening, Peter Bosz's Bayer Leverkusen return Bundesliga action on Friday.

They face a trip to fifth-placed Union Berlin next, hoping to apply pressure on RB Leipzig and leaders Bayern, while this week's hosts look to consolidate their place in Germany's top-six.

Since their first H2H meeting in October 2017, B04 remain unbeaten (4-0-0) against Eiserne. Will that impressive record still stands after MD16, or will Urs Fischer's men respond accordingly? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Union Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips

In their last five Bundesliga matches (W2, D3), Union Berlin is unbeaten, held Bayern to a draw before Christmas and could've snatched a victory last weekend against ten-man Wolfsburg.

Instead, they shared the spoils - a 2-2 full-time result - after Wout Weghorst's 10th league goal of the campaign, from the spot no less, proved a cruel equaliser midway through the second half.

Josip Brekalo's goalbound effort was blocked by the unsuspecting arm of Marcus Ingvartsen, with VAR review confirming a spot-kick would be taken. Up stepped Weghorst and he squeezed a low effort past Andreas Luthe to score, which is how the action-packed affair ultimately finished.

The penalty was soft, Renato Steffen's headed opener was a poor goal to concede too, and they must defend better to beat a stronger Leverkusen side.

Three places and four points separate the trios, but Bosz boasts far more attacking quality - and strength in depth - than Oliver Glasner has with Wolfsburg (6th).

Frankfurt's backline was overwhelmed overnight, as French winger Moussa Diaby ended a three-game run without a goal contribution by scoring a second-half brace.

Goals from Edmond Tapsoba and a Lucas Alario penalty cancelled out Amin Younes' early opener, compounding the visitors' frustration after the Napoli loanee - their best performer - limped off with a first-half knock.

Union Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen Correct Score Predictions

Leverkusen remains perfect against Friday's hosts, and that makes for an intriguing watch. Why?

Their last two meetings have been tightly-contested (3-2 last February, 3-1 the following month). Have the Union learned from their mistakes? Leverkusen should ultimately prove too strong for them.
