Union Berlin and Schalke look to halt their winless drought as they meet each other on Sunday at the Alte Forsterei. Currently in 14th place, The Iron Ones seek to register their first victory since February 24. Meanwhile, 10th-placed Schalke look to finally end their 11-game winless skid and revive their withering Europa League chances. Both teams lost their previous matches with the Royal Blues succumbing to Werder Bremen by one goal while Union Berlin were humiliated by Borussia Moenchengladbach, 1-4. With five games remaining in the season, the Iron Ones will try to lock down their place for next season. On the other hand, Schalke begin their mission to snatch sixth place, which will give them a slot in the Europa League qualifiers.

Union Berlin will go into the match against Schalke as favorites despite sporting the more inferior record. Over the last 10 games, the Iron Ones have emerged victorious two times compared to their foes who have not won a game in 11 consecutive matches. In their previous encounter, Union Berlin were crushed by Borussia Moenchengladbach due to their weak defensive stance, surrendering four goals. Sebastian Andersson is expected to lead the offensive charge for Union Berlin. Andersson, who has played in all the 29 games for the Iron Ones, have 12 goals this season and looks to add more and spearhead his team to victory. Goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz, who has started in all Union Berlin games, must bounce back from that lackluster stint against Gladbach to help his team win. He has tallied 97 saves and six clean sheets all season long. In the last 10 games, Union Berlin have a 2-6-2 (win-draw-loss) record against the spread. All of the victories were away matches as they have not tallied a single victory in four home fixtures. The Iron Ones, meanwhile, fared better in over/under with a 7-3 mark but they only tallied two O/U wins while playing at home.

Meanwhile, Schalke must regain their bearings to make it to the Europa League qualifiers with five games remaining. The Royal Blues still have a mathematical chance to catch up with sixth-running Wolfsburg and earn that slot. However, they must win all their games to better their chances. This is easier said than done because Schalke had not won over the past 11 games. The skid includes two 5-0 setbacks to RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich and a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund. In their last match against relegation-threatened Werder Bremen, Schalke could not buy a break. They had twice the number of shots attempted (12-6) all throughout the game but they were unable to capitalize on offense. Their defense were not on point as well as they allowed Leonardo Bittencourt’s 25-meter strike to reach the goalmouth for the game winner. In their upcoming game against Union Berlin, Schalke will again rely on Bastian Oczipka’s playmaking. Oczipka, who has played in all 29 games for the team, has five assists. The Royal Blues will also count on the offense of Suat Serdar and Amine Harit as they had combined for 13 goals during the 2019-20 season. Alexander Nuebel is expected to start between the pipes for Schalke as he has five clean sheets and 64 saves. Schalke have a miserable against the spread mark over the past 10 outings. They are 0-7-3. They have a better record in over/under with five wins and five defeats.

Union Berlin vs Schalke. Union Berlin will have a -1 spread in this game while Schalke are given a +1 spread. The total for the encounter is 2.5. In terms of head-to-head, this is the second time that both teams met with Union Berlin seeking for revenge to the 1-2 loss it suffered at the hands of Schalke in November last year. Predicted score is 2-1.
