Union Berlin can guarantee they end the seventh gameweek top of the 2022/2023 Bundesliga by beating Wolfsburg at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei on Sunday afternoon. Die Eisernen could open up a five point gap between themselves and Bayern Munich in the process. Read our preview here:
Becker's serving aces
With Bayern losing yesterday, there is a real opportunity for other challengers to make an impression early on in the campaign. Swiss head coach Urs Fischer has masterminded his side's rise from the second tier to top flight consolidation to European qualification with participation in this year's Europa League. Though their adventure on the continent has thus far ended with two 1-0 defeats, it has not affected their domestic form. Dutch forward Sheraldo Becker has crashed in five goals already, and will be keen to add to his tally.
Meanwhile, Niko Kovač is under pressure. Die Wölfe have won just once and sit only a single place above the very bottom of the pile. Jonas Wind remains out with a thigh injury, with a tentative return of early October pencilled in. His teammates have really struggled in a rigid 4-4-2, with only Lukas Nmecha coming close to enhancing his reputation. In goal, Koen Casteels has been unexpectedly busy, bring rarely dug out by the defence in front of him.
Casumo have odds of 3.10 for Union Berlin to return to the summit by winning at both half and full-time.
