1. FC Union Berlin will host Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday – Bundesliga
Union Berlin further strengthened their chances of clinching European football in back-to-back seasons as they beat Hertha Berlin 4-1 in the derby last weekend. Die Eisernen thoroughly deserved their victory as they were highly adventurous offensively.
The home team now sit seventh in the league table with 44 points from 29 games. They can return to the European spots with a win this weekend and will be looking to do just that.
Eintracht Frankfurt were beaten 2-1 on home turf by Freiburg in their last league game. However, they bounced back from that on Thursday, heading to the Camp Nou to knock out Barcelona in the Europa League quarterfinals with a 3-2 victory.
Eintracht Frankfurt will turn their attention towards domestic assignments and hope for similar success when they play this weekend.
