When Union Berlin hosts Eintracht Frankfurt within the Bundesliga on Saturday, October 4th, they will be eager to snap their 11-game losing skid. Frankfurt, on the other hand, is coming to the capital after winning 7 of their previous 3 matches.
Urs Fischer’s team has had a terrible run of play that has surprised both inside and outside the organization. Through their first 9 matches, Union Berlin has not even managed to accumulate that many points. Die Eisernen were eager to solidify their position within the group of Germany’s best teams after making it to the Bundesliga for the first time in the history of the club in 2019. They managed to qualify for the Champions League for the inaugural occasion in the club’s existence during the previous campaign. Despite winning the first two matches of the season, they suffered their seventh straight loss in the Bundesliga after falling to Werder Bremen 2-0 on the road. This puts them just one point above the drop zone. More worrisome however is the fact that they haven’t scored a goal in their last 4 losses, indicating that confidence has plummeted. They have two challenging matches left before the international break, facing Frankfurt and the league’s leaders Bayer Leverkusen.
The previous week, they kept Borussia Dortmund to a tight 3-3 draw, extending their winning streak in the Bundesliga to three matches. Omar Marmoush scored twice in the first half to give them a two-goal lead overall, but Dortmund pulled even during the 54th minute. In the 68th minute, Farès Chaïbi handed Frankfurt the advantage once more, but Julian Brandt scored an equalizer during the 82nd minute to preserve their winning streak. Wednesday’s 2-0 DFB-Pokal away victory for Frankfurt was made possible by strikes from Ellyes Skhiri as well as Ansgar Knauff. But at this early point in the season, league form always takes precedence, and Frankfurt must start winning more games if they are to be placed in the top 6.
