Bundesliga Matchday 31 Betting Tips – RB Leipzig
Continuing its exceptional form in this calendar year, Leipzig has taken 23 points from its last 9 fixtures to charge through to the top-4 of the league-table.
While he does have a few injury-problems, Domenico Tedesco should come back to the usual 3-4-1-2 formation after changing his tactics in the last match. Lukas Klostermann is out with Covid so Willi Orban, Mohammed Simakan and Josko Gvardiol will form the 3-man centre-back line-up with Péter Gulácsi in goal. Defensively, Leipzig has been the best team in the Bundesliga over the past couple of months.
Kevin Kampl is ruled out of the squad so Tyler Adams may get the nod to be the midfield partner for Konrad Laimer, who has found some serious form under the new manager. Nordi Mukiele will be the wing-back on the right-flank while Angeliño may be preferred on the left. Dominik Szoboszalai could be attacking-midfielder behind the strike-force of André Silva and Christopher Nkunku.

Bundesliga Matchday 31 Betting Tips – FC Union Berlin
After enduring a dreadful slump for about a couple of months, Union Berlin compiled 3 consecutive victories to move back into the top-6 of the Bundesliga table.
Urs Fischer has mostly chosen to set his team in a fairly defence-minded 3-5-2 system for much of the season. There are no injuries in the squad but Timo Baumgartl will be unavailable through suspension so club-captain Christopher Trimmel may have to slide into central-defensive trio alongside Paul Jaeckel and Robin Knoche while goalkeeper Andreas Luthe should also return from the sidelines.
Julian Ryerson will feature as the wing-back on the right with Niko Gießelmann on the left-flank. Rani Khedira has a vital role as the enforcer occupying the defensive-midfield position in front of the backline. Grischa Prömel and Genki Haraguchi are likely to be the two more attack-minded central-midfielders of the side. Taiwo Awoniyi and Sheraldo Becker will operate as a strike-pair up front.
