Bayern Munich will want to quickly bounce back after a shock defeat in their last game as they head into a massive top-of-the-table Bundesliga clash on Sunday. The current league leaders will take on third-placed Union Berlin who, alongside Borussia Dortmund, have the same tally of points as Bayern.
With three teams involved in the race for the league title after 21 rounds, Bayern holds the advantage due to their squad depth, quality, and experience. A shock 3-2 defeat against Borussia Monchengladbach was the alarm bell they needed and Julian Nagelsmann’s team is expected to get back on their feet at home.
Union Berlin is unbeaten in nine matches across all competitions this season and has been impressive in the league.
They dropped points against Schalke in their last game after having put together five consecutive wins since domestic football resumed in January and the team will be confident of mounting a challenge against Bayern.
