Union Berlin was inferior against Bayern Munchen and lost by 3:0. That was their first defeat in an official game in 2023. Their position remains very good, while at home, they are a team that usually gets what they want and knows how to keep the opponent at a distance. At the same time, they have a super tradition with FC Koln and will want to get back on the winning road. Their European run continues on Thursday, as they host Belgium’s Saint-Giloise in the Europa League. FC Koln neglected to return to winning ways, and received a second consecutive defeat, without scoring a single goal. Coach Baumgart has some problems with injuries and can’t count on Thielmann (14/1), Kilian (13/1), Dietz (11/1), Pedersen (5/0), and Uth (3/0). Union Berlin has 7 wins and 1 draw in the last 8 mutual matches with Koln, and this is a good opportunity to take the three points.
