Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin: Bundesliga 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Bayern Munich aims to revive their Bundesliga championship aspirations as they host Union Berlin at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night. The original meeting between the two teams, scheduled for December 2, was postponed due to unfavorable weather conditions.

Bayern Munich’s pursuit of a 12th consecutive Bundesliga title faced a setback with a surprising 1-0 home defeat against mid-table Werder Bremen. Despite a winter break warm-weather training camp, Bayern failed to impress and suffered their first home loss of the season, putting them seven points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen. Mitchell Weiser’s 59th-minute goal secured Bremen’s first win over Bayern since 2008. The reigning champions, now facing a title challenge, aim for a quick rebound on Wednesday. While their 65-game scoring streak at the Allianz Arena ended, Bayern has a favorable record against Union Berlin, winning three of the last four home meetings, including a 3-0 victory in February last year. However, they must be cautious, having had three draws in eight previous encounters with Union Berlin.

A week after a goalless draw with Freiburg in their first 2024 game post-winter break, Union Berlin’s match against Mainz 05 was postponed last Friday due to unsafe icy conditions at the MEWA Arena. Under new coach Nenad Bjelica, Union Berlin earned seven points in four Bundesliga matches, equaling their previous 12-game total this season. Despite this improvement, they remain in the relegation battle, sitting 16th, just three points ahead of the bottom three teams. Heading into Wednesday’s challenging encounter with Bayern Munich, Union Berlin has the fewest away points (four) in the Bundesliga this season. A resilient performance, akin to Bremen’s against Bayern, is crucial for success at the Allianz Arena before a must-win clash with Darmstadt on Sunday.
