Bayern Munich will have to dominate midfield to clinch a victory against Union Berlin on Sunday.

Football, across Europe and many other nations, came to a halt in March after an unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak. After long discussions with the German government regarding appropriate measures, DFL decided to restart behind closed doors. Bayern Munich resume their campaign away at Union Berlin on Sunday.

Bundesliga carries the torch of hope as Germany leads their European counterparts in a bold step to resume footballing action. The last game week in the German league took place way back in March.

The Revierderby might steal the spotlight in game-week 26. However, Bayern is expected to remain in the limelight for other reasons. In the previous fixture, Rekordmeister nicked three points against Union Berlin with a 2-1 victory during Hinrunde. While Union was in a poor form in March, the interval from football can stage a unique drama in game-week 26.

Let us look at the earlier game of the season between two sides, highlighting Union Berlin’s strengths and weaknesses. In the end, we look at what should be Die Roten’s approach to make sure that they return home with three points.
