Furth vs Union Berlin Predictions and Betting Tips
Furth vs Union Berlin Key Stats
- No Bundesliga team has conceded more home goals than Furth this season.
- Both teams have scored in nine of Union Berlin’s last ten fixtures in all competitions.
- Both teams have scored in three of Furth’s last four at home, as well as in five of their last six overall.
Improvement not in sight
As the season wears on, strugglers Greuther Furth continue to show that they lack the quality required to compete at this level. In fact, rather than slowly get to grips with life at the peak of German football, they seem to struggle more and more. After conceding four in defeat on the road to Gladbach, Sunday’s hosts shipped six at home to Hoffenheim, before conceding seven (yes seven) away against Leverkusen last time out.
What can we say about Furth at this point. They are well short of what’s required in all areas and it can be said with almost concrete certainty that they’re returning to the 2. Bundesliga, even at this relatively early stage. Union Berlin aren’t quite as menacing as Leverkusen, but does that mean that the hosts can get competitive? It seems unlikely.
Sturdy as ever
While Furth continue to come up short, Union Berlin continue to deliver sturdy performances, the likes of which saw them get the better of RB Leipzig last time out, despite being unfancied by the betting market.
It would be wrong to say that the visitors are overly strong at the back, as they often concede, keeping just one clean sheet in their last ten games in all competitions, but what they are good at is grinding out results. Urs Fischer’s men have lost just two of their last nine Bundesliga matches, while they come here having won two out of three recently. Such form is more than acceptable ahead of a match against Furth.
Furth vs Union Berlin Predictions
If you’re looking for a very likely winner this week, then Union Berlin tick that box. Like most Bundesliga teams, they are vastly superior to Furth and ought to come out on top, and even at an odds-on price of 8/11, look a good bet to do so. There’s a gap in quality between what the pair have produced, in all areas, so much so that the visitors really could be shorter, regardless of the fact that they’re away from home.
For those wanting to play this a little differently, maybe in terms of taking something at a juicier price, then ‘Union Berlin to Win & Both Teams to Score’ appeals. For all Union are the better side and really should come out on top, they don’t keep too many clean sheets, as the stats above suggest, while for all the visitors have a habit of taking heavy beatings, they aren’t averse to scoring a goal here or there, notching at least once in five of their last six defeats.
