The hosts have gained an upper hand and should be in front by now - according to xG - but Darmstadt have also posed a threat.

"Never again is now!"

Under this slogan, German professional football is commemorating the victims of National Socialism on and around 27 January, the date of liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp. This is the 20th year in which the DFL and the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 clubs have been involved in the “day of commemoration in German football” in cooperation with the “!Nie Wieder” (“!Never Again”) initiative. In light of current events, the day of commemoration around Matchdays 19 and 20 (26–28 January and 2–4 February) will focus on the topic of antisemitism.

Union fans in fine voice

The sun is shining in the German capital, and the home fans must be confident with their side unbeaten in three home Bundesliga matches.

View of the Darmstadt dressing room

The visitors' confidence should be boosted by coming back from two goals down to clinch a draw against Frankfurt in last weekend's derby.

Potentially pivotal

Just three points separate Union Berlin in 15th and Darmstadt, who are bottom of the table on 11 points. A win for either side would give their survival hopes a significant boost.

New deal for Rønnow

Frederik Rønnow will keep goal today after an extension to his contract at Union Berlin was announced this morning.

Eta's view on Darmstadt

"They have made up the deficit against Frankfurt and will start with a certain amount of euphoria. We want to be good defensively, but also play football. With a lot of depth, courage and enthusiasm."

Lieberknecht's view on Union

"Union are a physically strong team. They've recently switched between two systems, a 4-1-4-1 and then a back three in a 3-5-2. They have a good mix in their game of looking to play and then deep, long balls to their physically strong strikers. It'll be an emotional one. We'll face a big challenge above all physically."

Union on the up

Union have picked up seven points in four league games under new coach Nenad Bjelica, as many as in their first 12 matches of the 2023/24 campaign, while Darmstadt are without a win in 11 (7 defeats).

Union held Freiburg to a goalless draw in their first game of 2024, but their Matchday 18 meeting with Mainz was called off due to dangerous wintry weather. Die Eisernen have a three-point buffer on the relegation zone, but could be further clear if they get a result in their rescheduled Matchday 13 trip to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
