Sports Innovation previews the Bundesliga match between Union Berlin and Borussia Dortmund and offers team stats, betting tips and the latest odds.

Borussia Dortmund visit Union Berlin on Sunday determined to capitalize on an opportunity to get back into the title race.

Bayern Munich’s shocking 4-2 defeat to Bochum has allowed Dortmund a chance to close within six points of the Bundesliga leaders in the standings.

The second-placed visitors cannot afford to let such an opportunity go to waste, but Union Berlin are a tough nut to crack. The hosts have lost only once at home all season. However, like Dortmund, they enter the contest on the back of a defeat from their last match.
