Union Berlin enters this match as one of the only two teams still unbeaten in the Bundesliga after six games and will be looking not only to extend that streak, but also to maintain their position at the top of the table. Following a great start to the season, the hosts are two points ahead of champions FC Bayern Munich and just one point ahead of second-place SC Freiburg.

On the other hand, the visitors finally managed to record their first win of the Bundesliga campaign last weekend after five attempts in which they conceded a total of ten goals. Although VfL Wolfsburg's current form ahead of Saturday's match does not favor them, the fact that they have lost only one of their last seven meetings with Union Berlin will be a big boost.

Union Berlin vs Wolfsburg Betting Tips: BTTS

Despite the overwhelming start to the season, the hosts have only managed to finish two of their six league games without conceding a goal, which makes it unlikely that they can keep a clean sheet here.

Moreover, the guests have scored at least once in each of their last seven encounters with Union Berlin, so a bet on "both teams score" is the best option.
