Bundesliga Matchday 3 Betting Tips – 1.FC Union Berlin
At present, Union Berlin is sitting on 3rd spot in the Bundesliga table after earning 4 points from its opening 2 matches of the season.
Having let a number of players leave during this transfer-window, Union Berlin has also made plenty of new signings yet manager Urs Fischer has kept the starting-11 pretty much intact. However, Timo Baumgartl will be unavailable indefinitely after being diagnosed for testicular cancer. Therefore Robin Knoche, Paul Jaeckel and Diego Leite will comprise the 3-man defensive-line with Frederik Rönnow in goal.
Niko Gießelmann started the previous game in the left wing-back position with Julian Ryerson in his usual role on the right-flank. Rani Khedira will act as the enforcer in the middle of the park while Genki Haraguchi and Janik Haberer are going to be the two playmakers of the midfield. Sheraldo Becker is expected to form the centre-forward partnership with the new signing Jordan Siebatcheu.

Bundesliga Matchday 3 Betting Tips – RB Leipzig
Despite remaining undefeated, Leipzig has only taken 2 points from its first couple of matches which puts the club in 10th position at the moment.
Leipzig has certainly strengthened the squad in this transfer-window although the club has not brought in a large number of players. Nevertheless, Domenico Tedesco has tinkered with the side a fair amount as he is still looking to find his best combinations. Willi Orbán, Josko Gvardiol and Mohamed Simakan could form the central-defensive trio for this match in front of the goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi.
Lukas Klostermann is likely to get the nod for the wing-back role on the right-side with David Raum operating on the left-flank. Dominik Szoboszlai will be suspended after his red-card in the weekend so Benjamin Heinrichs and Kevin Kampl could be the two central-midfielders with Dani Olmo taking the no.10 position. Christopher Nkunku and Timo Werner are expected to be the centre-forward pair up front.
