Union Berlin will host Stuttgart at the Alte Forsterei in a 2021-22 Bundesliga clash on Saturday.

The capital club suffered a fourth loss in their last five league games as they suffered a 1-0 loss at Wolfsburg with Taiwo Awoniyi's own goal in the first half proving to be the difference in the game.

Stuttgart secured their first league win of the year, coming from behind to overturn a two-goal deficit against Borussia Monchengladbach. They won 3-2 to reduce the gap on 16th-placed Hertha Berlin to a solitary point.

Union Berlin vs Stuttgart Prediction

Die Roten have just one win in their travels this season and might struggle against their hosts. Die Eisernen, meanwhile, have four losses in their last five league games but are the favourites at home.

It is very likely that this game could also end in a stalemate, as both sides are missing key players.

Prediction: Union Berlin 1-1 Stuttgart.
