Hoffenheim vs. Union Berlin Bundesliga June 20

Union Berlin fans will be fairly happy whatever happens in this game thanks to the confirmation in the week of its place in the Bundesliga for another season.

Hoffenheim is the team with something still to play for, and that should inform how this game goes on Saturday. Keep reading for my Hoffenheim vs. Union Berlin prediction and betting pick.

Odds for Hoffenheim vs. Union Berlin

Hoffenheim to Win-167
The Draw+310
Union Berlin to Win+390

This is another game where one of the teams has little but pride to play for, and BetOnline has definitely used that as a factor when pricing the fixture. Hoffenheim would probably be the favorite to win this game anyway, but the circumstances under which it is being played makes a home win even more likely.

Hoffenheim vs. Union Berlin Match Preview

It could be January signing Mounas Dabbur that fires Hoffenheim into the Europa League after the Israel international scored another two in the week in the 3-1 win over Augsburg. That kept Hoffenheim in seventh place and a point ahead of Freiburg, who also won its midweek fixture.

Dabbur has come good at exactly the right time and looks to be benefitting from the club’s decision to part ways with head coach Alfred Schreuder with just four games left in the season. Hoffenheim immediately lost to Leipzig after his departure and has Borussia Dortmund on the last day of the season. So this game is crucial.

The good news for Hoffenheim is that Union Berlin will be quite happy seeing the next two games out without much drama, as it has achieved what many thought would not happen and has managed to stay up in its first-ever season of Bundesliga soccer.

It is an incredible achievement for Die Eisernen, especially considering a lot of people thought its chances of that would take a severe hit without being able to rely on its passionate home support to cheer it on. There is still pride to play for in the last two games, but the mission has been accomplished now, so don’t expect too much of a fightback if Union falls behind here.

Prediction and Pick

Pick
  • Hoffenheim to Win
    -167

It is a race between Wolfsburg, Hoffenheim, and Freiburg to take the last two Europa League spots now, and Hoffenheim is ideally placed to finish in the top seven and win a return to continental soccer next year. Union will battle as ever, but the home win bet is really the only one to go for here.
