Friday night is happy times for Bundesliga followers and bettors all over the world, so we bring you our top Union Berlin v RBL Leipzig prediction. Germany’s top division has traditionally produced high scoring football matches. Union have thrived this season with a lot of good results thus far. They are currently sixth in the standings with 20 points. On the flip side, RBL have had a shaky start as they are eight in the Bundesliga, and they have no chance of making it out of the group stage in the Champions League. However, they should be super motivated to get some points in this one, in order to make up some of the lost ground in the fight for the top four places.
The turbulent times in Red Bull were to be expected as they lost their head coach Julian Nagelsmann, who is now in charge of Bayern Munich. The replacment, Achim #Beierlorzer, will most likely miss today’s match after testing positive for Covid last Sunday. He has been isolating at home the entire week, and could feature if his test comes back negative today.
Union Berlin Team News
FC Union Berlin have a full squad available for tonigh, and that’s a key factor for today’s top Bundesliga prediction. Their only missing player is Laurenz Dehl, who misses out with an injury, but Kevin Behrens has recovered from Covid and is available for selection after completing his quarantine.
One of our Friday night Bundesliga betting picks is on our favorite Union Berlin player – the Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi. We expect him to score. Christopher Trimmel is unstoppable on the right flank, constantly moving back and forth and challenging the opposition with his accurate crosses for the strong Aowniyi and also Kruse.
The Berliners are a fun side to watch. They are not affraid to attack, especially at home.
Red Bull Leipizig Team News – a Covid breakout at the club
Red Bull Leipzig were forced to cancel training this week due to coronavirus in the camp, but all tests returned negative on Tuesday. The players who had a positive PCR test were Orban, Poulsen Simakan and Novoa, so they will all miss tonight’s match against Union Berlin. The Red Bulls have not been able to train normally this entire week and that’s one of the most important factors in this Union Berlin v RBL Leipzig prediction.

Union Berlin v Red Bull Leipzig Prediction, December 3, 2021
The Red Bulls are missing a number of key players and also their coach. Poulsen, whos is one of their best strikers, will miss out, as will the Spanish sensation Dani Olmo. Still, though, they have should have enough to score at least once here, as they can rely on the services of Foresber and Nkunku, both of whom are attacking players of the highest quality. Nkunku in particular, is one of the best young talents in the Europe today. He did have some fine performances in this season’s Champions League, against both PSG and Man City, and I’m sure this will be hist last season in Red Bull as they will cash out on him massively this summer.
Given the Covid outbreak at Red Bull and how it has impacted their training process going into this game, along with the good players they are missing, it’s difficult to understand why the bookies are considering them as favorites. That’s where online betters should look for value, and the value here is on Union Berlin. The home team are really good all over the pitch and it’s hard for me to see them losing this game.
The best betting prediction for Friday’s Bundesliga game is Both Teams to Score, also known as Goal/Goal.
