Union Berlin vs Greuther Furth
Competition ; Germany: 2.Bundesliga
Alten Forsterei Stadion — Berlin
Sunday, 20th September 2015 - kickoff 13:30 CET
After three consecutive draws against Kaiserslautern, 1860 Munchen and RB Leipzig, Union Berlin convincingly beat Karlsruher SC with 0-3 last weekend. Union Berlin choosing a lump sum just one match this coming year, but four of these six games resulted in draws. Each in their three home games this year also resulted in draws.
A quite interesting fact is that Union Berlin have managed one victory against Greuther Furth within their total of sixteen face to face duels from the 2.Bundesliga. They drew eight matches and lost seven games against their opponents from Furth, along with their one and only victory goes way back inside the year 2003 whenever they won with 3-0.
Last season Union Berlin finished as seventh within the 2.Bundesliga and perhaps they are a solid second division side. Eight in their total of twelve victories last season were achieved at their house ground in Berlin, so they really usually play well in your house.
Greuther Furth were over a negative group of four consecutive matches with out a victory, before winning 3-2 against Nuremberg last weekend.
Greuther Furth are a normal side and in all likelihood they will battle for just a mid-table finish this year. They are solid at your home, but bad at away grounds. Despite their good history against Union Berlin, they haven't won an away match in ten consecutive away games.
Greuther Furth achieved two 2-2 draws against RB Leipzig and MSV Duisburg the other 3-2 defeat against St.Pauli within their three away matches played until now. Counting together recent away games from last season, Greuther Furth have conceded at the least two goals in each of these last six away games.
The tradition is clearly on Greuther Furth`s side, but Union Berlin have been in a slightly better form currently.
I expect each side to show good displays on this match, but I give slight benefit to Union Berlin to sneak the negative tradition last but not least win against Greuther Furth.
