Freiburg vs Union Berlin Prediction

Freiburg have done well to reach the top four in the league standings this term and have the third-best defensive record in the German top-flight. They have outscored Die Eisernen 56-43 in the league while conceding only a goal fewer than them this term.

Union Berlin have been in good touch recently and are unbeaten in their last five league games. They should not be taken lightly by the home team as they have scored six goals in their last two away games.

We predict the game will end in a high-scoring draw between the two teams.

Prediction: Freiburg 2-2 Union Berlin
