The players from Berlin are doing unexpectedly well this season, but the favorite of the game was RB Leipzig. Jesse March’s team is playing in the Champions League and despite a slight loss in the table, they have great hope that they will be able to fight again to play in the European elite.
In Friday’s game, Union players turned out to be better, they took the lead quite quickly, then scored the second goal and maintained the favorable result until the very end. Unfortunately, once again there were no Poles on the pitch.
Already in the 6th minute of the game the hosts took the lead Taiwo Awoniyi, but Leipzig immediately started catching up, which brought results. Christopher Nkunku equalized in the 13th minute of the game. The first half was close and neither team created any more opportunities to lead to the break.
After the break, it was not long before the next hits. Timo Baugartl in the 57th minute gave Union the lead, which the hosts did not give up until the end of the match. An all-important victory for the start of the queue means that the Berliners temporarily occupy the fourth place in the table. The players of Freiburg, Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg will also play their game, and they may be equal to Union by points.
There were no Poles on the pitch again. Tymoteusz Puchacz and Paweł Wszołek are still outside the Union squad for league matches and today there was no place for them even on the bench.
Union Berlin – RB Leipzig 2: 1 (1: 1)
Goals: Taye Awoniyi (6), Timo Baumgartl (57) – Christopher Nkunku (13)
