Team News: Union Berlin
Union Berlin boss Urs Fischer has some current player fitness concerns. Anthony Ujah (Knee Surgery) and Christian Gentner (Calf Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
We believe that Union Berlin and Schalke won’t have much between them here, and goals could be hard to come by.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a game with minimal goal-scoring opportunities. We’re therefore tipping a tight encounter, finishing with a 0-0 draw at the end of the match.
