Bochum vs Union Berlin - 19/05/2019 Preview

Bochum will face Union Berlin at Vonovia Ruhrstadion, in Bochum, at German 2. Bundesliga 34th Round. Bochum against Union Berlin is the match with big interest after their previous matches at German Bundesliga IIReview our thoughts on this match here below. 

 

Bochum

In the last game of Bundesliga II, Bochum will play against Union Berlin. Bochum this year plays middle-class football with almost the same amuont of scored and conceded goals. At home hosts are playing great football, as by collected home points they are in top 5 list. Moreover, there is 1 game left. However, Bochum is the last Bundesliga II team by playing away games as they won only twice and in total collected only 14 points.

In general, ex-Bayer Leverkusen manager Robin Dutt took the squad wheel in the year 2018 and the club played the weakest season since 2014/15. Bochum is a young and interesting team, but they need to make some changes to reach the Bundesliga and play well. Die Unabsteigbaren have a concrete leader in the squad – Austrian Lukas Hinterseer with 18 goals and 5 assists.

Unfortunately, several squad players will miss the last game of Bundesliga II due to injuries. Maxim Leisc, Robbie Kruse, Vitaly Janelt, Jan Gyamerah, and Stefano Celozzi They will treat injuries while the team is playing and we will see them only next season.

 

Union Berlin

Union Berlin is still fighting for a place in Bundesliga next year. They are only 1 point away from Paderborn and are motivated to play as well as it is possible against the next opponent in the last game of the Bundesliga II. They already secured for 99% the place in Promotion’s Play-offs and will play against Stuttgart if they will finish at 3rd place. The Iron Ones are the best team by playing at home with 38 points this season and only 1 lost. While playing away, they have troubles and won only 3 games, what significantly reduces the chances of winning in this match.

The ex-Switzerland national team player Urs Fischer, Zurich legend and then manager also started to work with Union Berlin in the 2018 year. As a result, this season could be most successful for the squad since the 1991 year and promotion to Bundesliga would be more than expected from the first season. Sebastian Anderson took the leaders position, scored already 12 goals and made 5 assists.

 

H2H

During the last 5 games between these teams, all matches have been won by the home team. Only in the last match, Union Berlin won without conceding a goal against Bochum, as all 4 previous matches were with a total over 2.5 and goals from both teams. So we can expect a tough and open game from both clubs.
