UNN vs LEP Dream11 Prediction for Union Berlin vs RB Leipzig Bundesliga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


UNN vs LEP Dream11: Two Bundesliga defeats on the spin have seen RB Leipzig drop to eighth-place in the table, making this a crucial encounter for Jesse Marsch’s side against Union Berlin. The sixth-place hosts have lost only once at home so far this season in the Bundesliga, that to Bayern Munich whilst winning four and drawing two of their other six home league games. Leipzig won’t be frightened of taking the fight to Union and shouldn’t be with the quality of players at their disposal. However, Union poses a big danger going forward themselves and an end-to-end contest may be in prospect. With that in mind, back both teams to score for what would be the sixth time in RB Leipzig’s most recent seven Bundesliga fixtures.

Who will win the UNN vs LEP match?

  • Union have lost three out of four against Leipzig but are ultra-strong in front of their own fans, only losing to champions Bayern in their last 22 Bundesliga home games.
  • With the COVID situation deteriorating in Germany, the question remains if fans are allowed in Bundesliga stadiums though to generate any atmosphere and a decisive home advantage.
  • Eighth placed RB Leipzig have started slowly domestically under new coach Jess Marsch winning and losing five games, and are yet to win away from home this season.
  • Another defeat here in the East German derby could leave Marsch’s job hanging by a thread.
