Union Berlin take on the visitors Malmo in the round 4 match of UEFA Europa League group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, October 13th at Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Berlin).
Union Berlin have finally achieved a good result in the international arena. The "Iron Union" have been growing very well over the past few years. Few people may remember, but the capital project only recently debuted at the Bundesliga 1 level. And already from the 2nd attempt, a place in European competitions was taken, moreover, in this German championship draw, Urs Fischer's wards are among the leaders. But this comes back to haunt the misfires in the international arena. Last season, the Germans frankly unsuccessfully showed themselves in the Conference League. And in the Europa League, they started with a pair of defeats, 0-1 each, with Union Saint-Gillois and Braga. And only last Thursday, due to the only goal of Becker, it turned out to win in Sweden.

Malmo are nowhere near as good as it was last year. The Sky Blues couldn't keep a successful coach, who turned out to be former legendary forward Jon-Dal Tomasson. With the Dane, they managed to win the title in Allsvenskan, and even made it to the group stage of the Champions League last fall. Now it turns out much less, on both "fronts". In the Champions League qualification, they managed to eliminate only Vikingur Reykjavik. It was followed by a relegation from the modest Zalgiris. In the Europa League, the Swedes were able to knock out both Dudelange and Sivasspor in the qualification, but so far they haven’t managed to catch at least a draw in the group. Malmö started 0-2 at home with experienced Braga. This was followed by more persistent games, but in the end minimally, but lost to both Royale Union SG on the road (2-3) and Union Berlin at home (0-1). However, it makes sense to fight for the 3rd place in the Europa League.
Union Berlin have only scored the 2nd goal in European competition history. So it's not surprising that last Thursday he played Malmö for the first time. Berlin Union was able to win on the road and clearly intends to repeat it again. But at the same time, he is unlikely to want to spend so much energy - we recommend betting on "total less than 3.0 goals".
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
