Bayern Munich’s loss at Borussia Monchengladbach puts Union Berlin in pole position to move top of the Bundesliga table with a favourable result against Schalke at Alte Forsterei on Sunday afternoon.
The Iron Ones had the 18-man table to themselves but lost it following poor results. However, there’s a window of opportunity for the capital city club.
Bayern Munich has been inconsistent lately in the domestic scene despite their exploits in Europe. The Parisians earned a slim victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League round of 16 in Paris.
The Bavarians have managed just two wins from their previous five league games.
Union has won five consecutive league games. However, a decisive result would help to reclaim the top spot from Bayern Munich.
Visitors Schalke 04 are bottom of the 18-man table with just twelve points from twenty matches. The Royal Blues have recorded three draws and two losses in their previous five games.
A mix of individual brilliance and teamwork has helped Union Berlin throughout the season. Levin Öztunali, Sheraldo Becker, and Robin Knoche are expected to be in action as head coach Urs Fischer looks to capitalise on Bayern Munich’s slip in Gladbach.
