Where: Allianz Arena, Munich, GermanyWhen: January 24, Thursday, 3:30 AM
Bayern Munich and Union Berlin are finally going to play their delayed game, which was supposed to be a part of a Bundesliga round 13. The Bavarians need three points from this one in order to put pressure on Bayer Leverkusen, who is currently their only rival in the title race. Meanwhile, Union Berlin is battling for its Bundesliga status as they had a terrible finish in the first half of the season.
Bayern Munich vs. Union Berlin Preview
Harry Kane has a company in Munich now, with his former teammate Eric Dier landing at the Allianz Arena. This will be excellent for the English captain, and we can expect to see him display even better performances. Right now has scored 22 goals in 16 matches, which is a fantastic achievement.
The German champions opened the second part of the campaign with a confident victory over Hoffenheim, whom they defeated 3-0 at home. We have to say that the hosts didn’t spend too much of their energy during those 90 minutes looking perfect in all the areas on the field.
So far this year, Bayern has been terrific at home, having by far the best offense and defense, with 33 goals scored and only five allowed until the last weekend.
It appears that the team from the German capital didn’t have enough experience to play on both the European and the German stages. We have to say that their roster was a bit thin despite several big signings during the summer.
Champions League challenges were too much for Union, which experienced a cold streak of 14 games during which they haven’t won. It included 12 straight losses from early September up to November.
Union is terrible on the road, with only four points won in eight outings. They have scored seven times while allowing 17 hits in their net. It’s no wonder why the Berliners won just once outside their stadium in 2022/23.

Bayern Munich vs. Union Berlin Predictions
The fact that Bayern stands as one of the most ruthless hosts in the world and that, on the other side, we have a team that struggles to provide average performances on the road summarizes pretty much everything here. We won’t take too much of your time, but we suggest betting on Bayern’s commanding win by at least a two-goal margin.
