The two clubs have squared off just five times across all competitions. This will be just the fourth Bundesliga meeting between the two sides, with their first two meetings coming in the DFB Pokal.

All of their meetings have produced decisive results, with three wins for the hosts and two for Die Eisernen.

Berlin were the winners when these sides met at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei in December. Marvin Friedrich scored the winner in the 78th minute in the reverse fixture.

Borussia Dortmund vs Union Berlin Team News

Borussia Dortmund

Edin Terzic won't be able to call upon the services of Axel Witsel, Marcel Schmelzer, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Youssoufa Moukoko. The four players are long-term absentees with serious injuries.

Thomas Delaney was expected to be ready for the game against Werder Bremen but did not make it into the squad and is a doubt for this game. Jadon Sancho has trained individually since last week but faces a late fitness test.

Borussia Dortmund vs Union Berlin Prediction

Dortmund have been in good goalscoring form in their recent outings, having scored 12 goals in their last five games. They have also conceded eight in the same period.

Though Union Berlin haven't been as prolific in the final third as the hosts, they have the fourth-best defensive record in the league.

Dortmund have suffered from inconsistencies this term. They might find it difficult to score goals against a well-drilled Union Berlin side that recently held Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw.

We predict the game will end in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Borussia Dortmund 1-1 Union Berlin
