The starting position for this match is clear: Union Berlin is only a few points behind Freiburg and Hoffenheim in the fight for direct Europa League qualification. Frankfurt is already far behind and is in no man’s land on the table. Frankfurt also had a difficult game in midweek and should be tired.

Team news Union Berlin

With two wins in a row lately, Union Berlin went back to the top. After the winter break, Union initially lacked goals – their most important offensive player Max Kruse had left the team for Wolfsburg and the Berliners’ attacking engine sputtered. Now, however, success is returning. They won against Cologne and Hertha, both games took place in Berlin – Union has not had any travel stress lately and goes into this important game rested and highly concentrated. Last season they qualified for the Conference League, now the Europa League is just around the corner. Union does not have to make any major changes compared to the successful previous weeks.

Team news Eintracht Frankfurt

After Eintracht Frankfurt eliminated Barcelona in an outstanding match last Thursday, the team is rated much higher internationally and many will back Eintracht in this match. But the fact is that the Eintracht players won a very emotional game and celebrated this deep into the night on Thursday evening. The players certainly did not sleep much, a training session planned for Friday morning was even cancelled. The anticipation for the Europa League semi-final is huge, there is not much left to win or lose in the Bundesliga. Coach Glasner will make many changes and probably field the fittest and most rested players.

Head-to-head & statistics

  • Of the previous encounters in the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga, all seven ended with more than 2.5 goals.
  • In 6 of 7 games, both teams scored.
  • Union have lost only one of their last 10 home games
  • Frankfurt have lost only two of their last 10 away matches
  • Union Berlin have only scored more than 2 goals in one match
  • Eintracht Frankfurt trailed 0:1 in 17 of 29 matches (59%)

Our betting tip for Union Berlin vs. Eintracht Frankfurt

For all the euphoria surrounding Eintracht Frankfurt after their win against Barca, the game at Union is something completely different. Union is rested, has not had to travel for weeks and still has big goals. Frankfurt’s only big goal this season is the Europa League semi-final against West Ham United. Our money is on a home win for Union Berlin against a tired Frankfurt. All previous matches between the two teams ended with more than 2 goals. They will remain true to this tradition in this match as well. Good odds for this are available at Bet365 and Betsson.

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
