Union Berlin takes on RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga on Saturday, with the hosts requiring a win to secure a spot in the first UEFA Europa Conference League for next season.

Leipzig, meanwhile, will finish second regardless of how they perform in Julian Nagelsmann's final game in command before joining champions Bayern Munich in the summer.

Team News

Union Berlin has been given a big setback with the suspension of Robert Andrich, who received his fifth booking of the season last weekend against Leverkusen.

The engine room will most likely be filled by Sebastien Griesbeck.

Injury may rule out Jakob Busk, Florian Hubner, Grischa Promel, Cedric Teuchert, Leon Dajaku, and Anthony Ujah.

Meanwhile, it's unclear whether Hungary winger Dominik Szoboszlai will make his Leipzig debut now that he's back in training after recovering from a groin injury that has kept him out since coming from Red Bull Salzburg in January.

Szoboszlai, along with Peter Gulacsi, Angelino, Marcel Halstenberg, Dani Olmo, Lazar Samardzic, and Tyler Adams, is unlikely to be risked ahead of Euro 2020.

Konrad Laimer made his first start of the tournament after missing the majority of the season due to a catastrophic knee injury, and he should be selected again next season as he works to regain match fitness.

Union Berlin possible starting lineup:
Luthe; Schlotterbeck, Knoche, Friedrich; Trimmel, Gentner, Griesbeck, Lenz; Ingvartsen; Pohjanpalo, Kruse

RB Leipzig possible starting lineup:
Martinez; Orban, Upamecano, Klostermann; Mukiele, Sabitzer, Kampl, Haidara; Nkunku, Forsberg; Poulsen
