August 22, 2021 4:30 pm
With the 2021/2022 Bundesliga already started on the 13th of August, we are set to enter the second round of games with all the teams battling it out for three points. On Sunday, 22nd of August, we will see Hoffenheim receive FC Union Berlin at the PreZero Arena. The home side is currently 2nd on the log, having won their first match, while the visitors are 10th.
The home team, Hoffenheim, won their first game of the season, which was against FC Augsburg in a thumping 4-0 match at WWK Arena in Augsburg. The game saw four different names on the scoresheet showing Hoffenheim’s absolute control and domination in the match. Some of the scorers were Jacob Bruun Larsen, Sargis Adamyan, Georginio Rutter and Sebastian Rudy. The game was not without its ups and downs, with two players from Hoffenheim receiving yellow cards and Kevin Akoguma getting subbed off after getting injured.
On the other hand, FC Union Berlin got held to a 1-1 draw in their last match against Bayer Leverkusen. Interestingly, two goals were scored in the match’s first 12 minutes. With Taiwo Awoniyi getting injured in the match, we can expect Coach Urs Fischer to change some things on his side when they visit PreZero Arena. With Union Berlin chasing their first win of the season, you can expect the team to go all out for a win.
However, with FC Union Berlin having to play a UEFA Conference League match before their game against Hoffenheim, the team might be a bit stretched because they have to travel to Finland and back. Nevertheless, we expect Coach Fischer to rest his main players for the Conference League match to avoid major injuries and general tiredness.
FC Union Berlin is a team known to always find their rhythm as time progresses. Having lost only 2 out of their last 9 Bundesliga matches, the team is not doing badly. On the other hand, Hoffenheim is a strong team that has lost only one game in their last 9 Bundesliga matches.
