It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the sole fitness concern for the Union Berlin gaffer Urs Fischer to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Anthony Ujah (Knee Surgery) is out of contention.
Team News: Freiburg
Freiburg boss Christian Streich has multiple availability issues to deal with. Mark Flekken (Elbow Injury) and Janik Haberer (Ankle Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
For this match, we think that Freiburg will manage to score against this Union Berlin side, but that is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re expecting a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning score for Union Berlin at the end of the 90 minutes. We’ll have to see what happens.
