1. FC Union Berlin will host Greuther Furth on Friday - Bundesliga

The Bundesliga returns this weekend and will see Union Berlin host Greuther Furth at the An der alten Forsterei on Friday night.

Union Berlin are in good form in the Bundesliga and further strengthened their push for European football last weekend. They beat high-flying RB Leipzig 2-1 on away turf as they took revenge on the Red Bulls for their DFB-Pokal disappointments days prior.

The home side sit sixth in the Bundesliga table with 50 points from 31 games. They will be looking to continue their strong run this weekend as they target a European spot next season.

Greuther Furth's relegation from the top-flight was confirmed last weekend as they lost 4-1 to third-place Bayer Leverkusen. Jetro Willems opened the scoring with his first-ever goal for the Cloverleaves before their opponents turned the game on its head minutes later.

Greuther Furth sit rock-bottom in the league standings with just 17 points. With nothing left to lose, the visitors will now be looking to end their season on a high.
