Union Berlin vs Slavia Prague: prediction for the Conference League fixture
Union Berlin and Slavia Prague square off at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei on Thursday, December 9 in their final group match of the Europa Conference League. What to expect from this game? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Union Berlin defeated Maccabi Haifa (1:0) in the last round of the Conference League and regained the opportunity to progress to the knockouts. After five games, Urs Fischer's charges have 6 points in the asset and sit in 3rd position in the group table, one point behind their current opponent. The Iron Ones are quite successful in the Bundesliga (6th place in the table), and in general they look confident in home fixtures.
Slavia Prague are leading the Czech First League standings after 17 rounds. Jindřich Trpišovský's men are on a winning streak of 9 games across all tournaments, and a draw in Berlin would be enough for them to secure the second knockouts berth. In the last round, Slavia shared points with the formidable Feyenoord (2:2) at home and retained the 2nd line in the group table.
Union Berlin won 2 out of 6 games with this score.
The hosts scored before halftime in their last 4 home games.
In the last 4 home games of Union, this bet won.
The two sides clash for a spot in the playoffs. Union Berlin must win in order to overtake Slavia, and the Czechs would be happy with a draw. The visitors will obviously play very carefully on the defensive, trying to keep a clean sheet, but the Iron Ones are usually successful at home, and they should be able to win today.
Our prediction - Union berlin to win

Union will try to net an early goal and force the opponents to go forward and make mistakes on the defensive. We think that this is a likely scenario for the upcoming game, as the hosts have a strong attacking line and often challenge the German giants in the Bundesliga. We suggest playing the total over.
Second bet - total over 2.5 goals
