Union Berlin

Union Berlin have lost just once in their last six league games and they will be looking to pull off an upset here. They are formidable at home and Bayern’s latest performance against Borussia Monchengladbach will give them the belief that they can get a good result against the defending champions. 

The home side have picked up three wins and a draw in their last four league games. 

Possible Union Berlin starting line-up

Andreas Luthe; Timo Baumgartl, Robin Knoche, Paul Jaeckel; Niko Giesselmann, Grischa Promel, Rani Khedira, Christopher Trimmel; Genki Haraguchi; Taiwo Awoniyi, Sheraldo Becker

Bayern Munich

The Bavarian giants will be utterly disappointed with their showing against Gladbach in the DFB Pokal and they will be desperate to put things right here. 

The away side will be full of motivation and they will look to extend their impressive head-to-head record against Union Berlin. Bayern are coming into this game on the back of five wins in their last six league games. 

Possible Bayern Munich starting line-up

 Manuel Neuer; Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Niklas Sule, Alphonso Davies; Joshua Kimmich, Marcel Sabitzer; Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane; Robert Lewandowski


Bayern Munich will be firm favourites to pick up all three points regardless of how they performed during the midweek. The away side will be hurt about the result against Gladbach and Union Berlin will up against a hungry Bayern side. 

The defending champions are undefeated in eight of their nine league games so far and this should be another routine win for them.
