Union Berlin vs RB Leipzig Betting Tips

Union Berlin is going into this match with their best-ever start in a Bundesliga season, although they are 11 points from first place. They welcome RB Leipzig to their home ground as they face off in what looks like an intriguing encounter between the two German clubs.

Our Tipsters Angle

This is one of the unpredictable Bundesliga matches when checking team form and stats. While it might seem like Union Berlin is strong on paper to win this game, especially with their in-form striker Awoniyi. 

RB Leipzig, on their part, seems to be on the correct path to salvage their season, and this match might be one of their statement matches. However, below we provided our thoughts/predictions on this match.

Tip 1: Over 2.5 Goals  

In the last 5 previous meetings between Union Berlin and RB Leipzig, over 2.5 match goals were scored in 4 of them. The nature of the match indicates that both teams would likely attack and not sit back. However, their defense is also porous, suggesting that we are looking at a high-scoring encounter here. 

Also, 4 of their last 5 individual matches (between RB Leipzig vs. other teams and Union Berlin vs. other teams) has seen over 2.5 goals, and we are expecting a similar outcome for this match.  

We think there will be more than 2 goals in this match, and At the Casumo Sportsbook, Over 2.5 goals is available at odds of 1.78.

Tip 2: Union Berlin +2 (European Handicap)

Union Berlin is currently the better of the two sides and based on their current form, they are in a good position to win this match. However, RB Leipzig has the stronger squad on paper and shouldn’t be underestimated, especially as they seem to have found their rhythm to win matches. 

We think that the safest and best option for this hard to predict match is to assign Union Berlin +2 handicap because we don’t think RB Leipzig would win this match by more than 2 goals.  

At Casumo sportsbook, Union Berlin +2 handicap is placed at 1.26 odds, and we think it is a good value for this match. 


RB Leipzig’s past 3 matches has seen an improvement in their approach to games, but we can’t tell if they are ready to beat a team full of confidence like Union Berlin. Even though, this is not a top table clash, it looks exciting by its sheer weight of ambitions and unpredictability. 

Will Union Berlin continue on their fine form or will RB Leipzig win them as they have been doing the last 4 out of 5 meeting times? We don’t know yet.   

This match can go either way because Manchester United desperately needs a statement win, and Arsenal can pounce on a vulnerable Manchester United side. However, with the appointment of a new coach, Manchester United might win this match easily.

Whichever outcome happens in the match, the previous game between these two sides has all been entertaining, and we will get an entertaining match.
