Union Berlin will be looking to end their campaign with a win that could see them avoid relegation when they play host to Freiburg on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts are on the brink of getting relegated to the second Bundesliga for the first time since 2018/19. What’s more worrying is that Marco Grote’s side finished last season in the Champions League places ahead of Leverkusen who have won the league. Union Berlin do have a chance to avoid automatic relegation but they must beat Freiburg, while hoping Mainz suffer a defeat in their own final game.

Freiburg meanwhile are fighting for the European places. The visitors sit in eighth and could finish the season in the top seven should they pick up all three points this weekend. Other results will have to go their way, though.

Union Berlin vs Freiburg Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

The inability to defend is one of the reasons Union Berlin are in the relegation battle. The Iron Ones have shipped 57 goals this season, which is almost two times what they conceded in the 2022-23 campaign. Union Berlin conceded at least three goals in each of their last two games and I expect this weekend’s game to end similarly.

The last meeting between Union Berlin and Freiburg ended in a goalless draw, but the previous encounters produced plenty of goals. Three of the last four encounters between the two sides ended with at least five goals. 

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals

Union Berlin team news

After his side blew away a two goal advantage against FC Koln last time out, Union Berlin head coach Marco Grote is expected to make changes to his starting eleven.

Chris Bedia and Benedict Hollerbach are among those who could benefit from this reshuffle after only featuring as substitutes in that game.

Kevin Vogt is not available for this game due to injury, while Rani Khedira is set to serve a suspension for accumulation of bookings.

Freiburg team news

Kiliann Sildillia is still suspended for his red card against Wolfsburg over two weeks ago and Freiburg’s treatment room also has plenty of key names.

Saturday’s game will come too soon for Daniel-Kofi Kyereh (cruciate ligament), Kenneth Schmidt (muscle), Philipp Lienhart (knee), Matthias Ginter (tendon) and Merlin Röhl (muscle) due to injuries.
