|Bayer Leverkusen win 2.25||Draw 3.30||Union Berlin win 3.25|
Bayer looks good in terms of the game, but the problems and instability of performances prevent the team from taking points more actively.
Union is very good this season and even on the road looks excellent in defense, rarely falling behind.
Most likely, the hosts will prefer to take a chance and start attacking from the very beginning of the game, which will only play into the hands of the Berliners who are quick in counterattacks.
Prediction for this match: Union not to lose (X2).
