Team News

Union Berlin
  • Dayot Upamecano is suspended for just one game after his red card vs. Gladbach.
  • Sadio Mane is ahead of schedule to return from a tendon injury, while Kingsley Coman has a calf injury.
  • New signing Yann Sommer has taken over in goal after captain Manuel Neuer broke his leg in a skiing accident.
  • Noussair Mazraoui is ruled out for several weeks with a COVID-related heart problem. Lucas Hernández suffered an ACL injury during the World Cup and will not play again this season.
  • Andras Schäfer is ruled out with a foot injury, but coach Urs Fischer will have to see how his side rock up after Europa League action on Thursday.


  • Bayern slipped to only their second league defeat of the season in Gladbach and have won only twice in six games in 2023.
  • Level on points, Union Berlin could have gone top but drew a blank at home to bottom club Schalke.
  • Union Berlin eased past Ajax in the Europa League on Thursday, while Bayern have the week off from European action to plan on retaining top spot.
  • Bayern have never lost in seven meetings (four wins, three draws) with Union and these are usually the games that the champions win to tip the title race in their favour.

  • Another wonderful performance by Bayern - the greatest football club in Europe, and therefore, the world! All other "top clubs" in Europe are a joke compared to them. An absolute joke!

  • Why was my comment deleted? I only wrote that it would be hilarious if Union won. What's offensive about that?

  • @andrew7taylor I hope it wasn't anything to do with my stupid "joke?" I can't understand German but did you use any swear words in your post? Who will delete comments if someone reports bad language. BTW, have you shagged all the girls in Berlin? (Joke alert, everyone! Don't panic, don't panic!)

  • @RichieRochdale - I did quote a couple of lines from the well-known Toten Hosen song "Bayern", but I wouldn't have thought that "poop club" from a top 10 hit was over the line. BTW, I've never been anywhere near Berlin. What's the joke?

  • @andrew7taylor Sorry, Andrew. Your name is the real name of the singer "Andrew Eldritch" of the band, The Sisters Of Mercy. He has close links to both the cities of Leeds and Berlin. It is conceivable that he might be a Union Berlin fan (although maybe not a Leeds United fan?). One of his songs is, "I've Slept With All The Girls In Berlin." My apologies, Andrew, I just couldn't resist.

  • How easy is soccer betting? Bayern easy win/
