It will be known this Monday, May 27, the last of the 18 participants of the 2019/2020 edition of the First Division of the German Championship. Union Berlin and Stuttgart will play in the An der Alten Försterei stadium in Berlin the second playoff game of the Bundesliga relegation. The kickoff is scheduled for 15:30 (Brasília time).In the first game in Stuttgart, there was a 2-2 draw. In this way, whoever wins will be the last berth in the German division. Equality without goals or for a try benefits the owners of the house. Draw by three or more goals is favorable to visitors. The replay of the marker causes an extension to be made, which, if it does not have a winner, will lead to the definition for penalties.
The German Championship uses a mixed relegation system. The last two places of the season are automatically relegated. Thus, Hannover and Nurembeg were sent to Second Division and will be replaced by Colony and Paderborn, respectively champion and vice of Bundesliga 2.The penultimate, however, wins a ‘second chance’ and can play in the knockout with third-placed Segundona. In ten times this has happened since the regulation was established, in nine the demotion was avoided.
Union Berlin came very close to securing a place in the First Division. Like Paderborn, he has accumulated 57 points (14 wins, 15 draws and five losses). He was behind only by taking advantage in the balance of goals.On the final day, the runners-up were defeated by Dresden 3-1, but the capital’s team did not know how to take advantage of the stalemate by drawing 2-2 away from Bochum, who has played since the 26 minutes of the second half with one less athlete (Ganvoula was sent off). He was at a disadvantage when he was in numerical advantage. He came to the draw, but failed to get the turn that would give him the right to play in the Bundesliga in 2019/2020.His strong point in the season, however, were the games in his ‘trapdoor’. When considering only the results of the teams in their domains, Union Berlin finished as leader of the ranking, Of the 51 points that disputed like column one gained 38 (11 victories, five ties and a defeat) having scored 34 goals and suffered 11. There were two points more than Paderborn and six of advantage in comparison with the champion Cologne.
Third-ranked First Division with 28 points (seven wins, seven draws and 20 losses), Stuttgart had their biggest weakness in the visiting campaign. Of the 51 points he played as column two he returned home with only six (one win, three draws and 13 losses) having scored ten goals and conceded 43.In this way, the 2-2 draw in the first match, after having been in advantage twice in the marker, was worrisome. However, it can not be considered unfair. Although home owners had possession of the ball longer (61% to 39%), the visitors had more attempts at finishing (16 to 12) and were more efficient sending more shots on the target (6 to 5).That should cause coach Nico Willig to promote changes in the lineup for this Monday’s game starting the match with veteran striker Mario Gomez and midfielder Alexander Esswein, who stayed on the bench in the game on Thursday, May 23 , and improved the team’s performance when they entered the second stage.
Football Prediction of the Day Union Berlin vs Stuttgart
