Preview: Union Berlin vs Bayern Munich
Hosts Union Berlin have had a solid season so far, and have a 12 point gap between themselves and the drop zone. They have also pulled off some impressive results this term, including beating Borussia Dortmund, but will face a tough test when league leaders Bayern come to town. Although die Roten have had their ups and downs this term, including firing their coach, Niko Kovac, midway throughout, they have now reassumed their position on top of the Bundesliga.
However, with Dortmund closing the gap to just one point thanks to their resounding win over Schalke, Bayern will be even more keen on making sure they resume action in the Bundesliga with a bang. Fortunately for the visitors, top scorer Robert Lewandowski will be back in action and will be leading the line for die Roten - which will be a huge boost as they look to pick up all three points.
