Preview : Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin

Bayern Munich will be looking to potentially go top of the Bundesliga table as they host a struggling Union Berlin team tomorrow.

Bayern drew 0-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday against Copenhagen after already qualifying for the knockout rounds by winning all of their previous matches in the group stage.

Thomas Tuchel’s side now return to Bundesliga action having won their last six matches in a row. 

They face a Union Berlin side who are currently enduring a difficult season as they sit in 17th place and are just one place above Köln at the bottom of the table.

Union will be entering the match under their new manager Nenad Bjelica after Urs Fischer was dismissed from the club with 13 defeats in 14 matches. 

The Croatian manager has experience of managing in Turkey, Italy, Austria and his homeland Croatia.

Bjelica was recently in charge of Trabonzor before leaving the club in October. 

His first game in charge of Union Berlin came in the Champions League against Braga where his side earned a 1-1 draw.

He now faces a big test in his first Bundesliga match against the champions.
