In-form Union Berlin will try to extend their winning run in Bundesliga to three games when they take on Heidenheim on Matchday 23. The capital club have been impressive at the back of late and they are likely to rely on their solid defence in Saturday’s game as well. Rani Khedira has joined Andras Schafer in the recovery room, while both Kevin Volland and Diogo Leite are banned for the match.

Heidenheim, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Bayer Leverkusen. Frank Schmidt’s troops are stuck in the middle of the table and given Union Berlin’s signs of improvement in February; home win should definitely be considered. Both Thomas Keller and Elidon Qenaj are out of contention with injuries, while Denis Thomalla is a major doubt (illness) and the forward will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

Prediction: 2-0 (Union Berlin)

The Genesis of FC Union Berlin

Established in 1966, FC Union Berlin sprouted from the football-crazy soil of East Germany. Despite its less than lavish beginnings, the team has shown formidable resilience and ardour. This steam-engine team from the capital city of Berlin has had its fair share of ups and downs.

After the reunification of Germany, FC Union saw several financial hardships that almost led to their downfall.

They made their debut in the Bundesliga, the top-tier German football league, in the 2019-2020 season, a testament to their relentless pursuit of excellence and indefatigable spirit.

Despite starting in the fifth division of German football, Heidenheim's impressive performance and commitment soon saw them rise to play in the second division, the 2. Bundesliga, just seven years after their formation. Their rapid ascent and tenacity have earned them a reputation as a formidable football club, capable of challenging even the most seasoned teams.

Converging Paths
