After a lengthy break, the Bundesliga is finally returning.

This weekend sees the action brought back onto the pitch after a period off due to the coronavirus outbreak. While there will be no fans in attendance, the event looks set to bring all corners of the world together.

What are your Union Berlin v Bayern Munich Tips?

Six games will have already taken place by the time champions Bayern Munich take to the field. They travel to Union Berlin on Sunday.

The champions go into the game sitting top of the Bundesliga, four points ahead of rivals Borussia Dortmund in second. Challengers RB Leipzig are in third, with Borussia Monchengladbach sitting fourth.

But that could all change this weekend.

Cologne host Mainz on Sunday afternoon, followed by Bayern’s visit to Union Berlin. The hosts are currently 11th in the table.

Bayern go into the game as strong favourites at 3/13, with Union Berlin currently 16/1 to take all three points.

A draw between the pair can be backed at 31/5.

Not only do Bayern lead the way in terms of league standings, but their statistics are also well ahead of the rest.

Striker Robert Lewandowski is the league’s top scorer this season with 25 goals. 

The Poland international is currently 2/1 to score the game’s first goal on Sunday.

Youngster Joshua Zirkzee is available at 19/5 to open the scoring, with Serge Gnabry and Philippe Coutinho currently 9/2 and 5/1 respectively.

Fellow attackers Ivan Perisic and Leon Goretzka are available at 13/2. And it’s 8/1 for Kingsley Coman to score Bayern’s first goal back.

Leading the way in terms of assists is Bayern’s Thomas Muller, but the German is 6/1 to turn goalscorer this time around and find the back of the net first.

It’s currently 15/8 for an away win and both teams to score, and 25/1 for a Union Berlin victory and both teams to score. A draw with both teams scoring is available at 8/1.

With 73 goals this season, the champions once again sit top of the pile. And they may once again be in scintillating form on Sunday.

They have been given odds of 21/10 to score four or more goals in the game.

With just nine games remaining for most sides, it looks set to be a thrilling end to the campaign. Bayern will be looking to hold on to that lead at the top, but Dortmund and Leipzig will be right there behind them.

And with no European distractions, all eyes are now fully focused on the league campaign.
