Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin: Potential title-decider on the cards on February 26th

February 24, 2023 By Michelle Bonsu
Bayern could find themselves losing their grip on top spot if they can't get the better of high-flying Union Berlin on Sunday, February 26th.

For well over a decade, Bayern Munich have enjoyed an undisputed reign as the champions of Germany. The success of die Roten has divided German football followers, with supporters of rival teams and neutrals expressing frustration at how the Bavarian titans had turned the Bundesliga into a rather boring, predicable, one-horse league. Naturally, Bayern fans have been basking in the team's dominance and seeing their team break numerous records in the process.

However, this time around, it appears that the tide may be finally shifting. While Julian Naglesmann's side are presently on top of the table, it's merely by a thread, with goal-difference keeping them just ahead of Borussia Dortmund and upcoming opponents Union Berlin. All three sides currently have picked up 43 points, and there are other teams, like Freiburg (40 points), RB Leipzig (39 points), and Eintracht Frankfurt (38 points) who still do have a shout in what's shaping up to be a very interesting title race this season.

Bayern come into this match having again slipped up against Borussia Moenchengladbach, who have become a thorn in their sides as of late. Overall, Naglesmann's men have won just two of their last five Bundesliga matches and will be welcoming an opponent who have exceeded expectations by far this term. Although Bayern have not lost any of their last seven meetings with Union Berlin, but die Eisernen have had an outstanding campaign so far and are presently unbeaten so far in 2023.

Urs Fischer's side finished in fifth place last season, which gained them a spot in the Europa League, but this season could see them qualify for the Champions League. While there's still plenty of matches between now and the end of the current campaign, Union Berlin could also potentially go one step even further and win the league title, which would be an absolutely outstanding achievement for a team who were only promoted to the Bundesliga back in 2019.

The visitors come into this match having seen their four match winning streak snapped as they were held to a frustrating stalemate against relegation-threatened Schalke, but will still fancy their chances at causing an upset at the Allianz Arena. While Bayern have yet to lose on home turf this season, and will receive a huge boost with the return of Sadio Mane after a long injury lay-off, they certainly will not be taking their upcoming visitors too lightly in what could be a match to potentially shake-up things in this season's title race.
