Union Berlin vs RB Leipzig predicted lineups and team news

This is how we believe the Union Berlin and RB Leipzig starting XIs could look this Sunday:

Union Berlin- Will they make it three straight wins at home?

This current season of the Bundesliga started with two straight wins for the Union Berlin camp, and as they approach their round 3 clash with Leipzig, they sure hope to make it a straight three. The camp of Union Berlin looks absolutely positive, and being at home, they are sitting in a comfortable position.

With four goals under his belt already, Kevin Behrens, the German striker, looks to be guns blazing for the Union Berlin, and hopefully he can help the squad clinch their Home game as well.

Union Berlin: Team news

Leonardo Benucci’s signing a few days ago with Union Berlin was an absolute win, as the former Juventus veteran can definitely strengthen their defense. However, the current combination is working well enough for Union Berlin, as they have secured two back to back wins already. Thus, the squad is likely to change for now, but clearly, the depth of this squad’s defense has gone up significantly.

Union Berlin’s predicted lineup ( 3-4-3)

Frederik Rnnow (GK); Diogo Leite, Robin Knoche, Paul Jaeckel; Robin Gosens, Alex Král, Aissa Laïdouni, Josip Juranović; David Datro Fofana, Kevin Behrens, Kevin Volland

RB Leipzig- Can they keep their spark alive?

After a close game against Bayern Leverkusen that ended up being a 3-2 defeat for the Leipzig team, they made an astounding comeback in round 2 against Stuttgart and won 5-1. Leipzig’s massive scoreline speaks volumes about their performance at home. Now in Round 3 of the Bundesliga, they surely hope to keep it going and claim the away win against Union Berlin, who are in tremendous form.

The Leipzig squad seems to have found a massive surge of confidence after that 5-1 win against Stuttgart, but now they need to sustain that spark and snatch their away win.

RB Leipzig: Team news

The Leipzig squad’s focus right now is to strengthen their team coordination and do their best against a sorted out Union Berlin squad on Sunday. The team has officially announced their third kit for this season as well, and the coach said after the UCL draw that he looks forward to having exciting games on RB Leipzig’s official YouTube channel. Having said that, we can surely expect a fighting team spirit from this Leipzig squad on sunday game day.

RB Leipzig’s predicted lineup (4-2-2-2)

Janis Blaswich (GK); Benjamin Henrichs, Mohamed Simakan, Willi Orbán, David Raum; Kevin Kampl, Xaver Schlager; Xavi Simons, Dani Olmo; Loïs Openda, Yussuf Poulsen.
