Union Berlin faces VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday, January 9th as they play a vital match for fifth place in the Bundesliga. Matched on nearly every stat in the league table, this is set to be a key match for both clubs.

Union Berlin goes into the match slightly favourably. They have the better goal difference, and their record for the season is 6-6-2, with 24 points overall. However, with 2020/21 being the club’s first season in the Bundesliga, this record is nothing to sniff at whatsoever. They currently hold 5th place in the league.

Their league table neighbours, Wolfsburg, share the same 6-6-2 record for the 2020/21 season but have had a slightly worse time on the pitch in their last few games. Despite their convincing win against Werder Bremen last week, they’ve suffered a few setbacks from top-of-the-table teams recently. VfL Wolfsburg currently sit at 6th place.
