Union Berlin and RB Leipzig battle it out at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei in the Bundesliga on Saturday. Die Roten Bullen face another tough test when they head to the capital to take on Union in an effort to turn things around in their Bundesliga campaign.
Union Berlin, of course, were pipped to the fourth Champions League qualification spot by Leipzig by a single point last season, so may feel that they owe their forthcoming opponents a slice of revenge on Saturday. Urs Fischer’s side have delivered two successive top-half finishes since being promoted to Germany’s top-flight for the first time in their history in 2020, and with one win and one draw from their opening two matches, they do not look like stopping there.
In truth, though, their 0-0 draw against Mainz 05 last weekend was a match to be missed. Extremely hot conditions did not help either side play at their best, in fairness, with both managers keen to avoid being caught in transition.
On the other hand, It has not been an ideal start to the campaign for Leipzig, who may have believed that they could sustain a title challenge this season having splashed £50m on renowned players. Werner was thrown straight in for his second debut against FC Koln last weekend, getting his Leipzig career back up and running in perfect fashion when his speculative effort from 25 yards somehow went through the body of Marvin Schwabe and into the back of the net.
After Christopher Nkunku missed an excellent chance to double his side’s lead, Koln went straight up the other end and equalized after Florian Kainz’s accurate low cross found Florian Dietz at the back post. However, Nkunku redeemed his earlier miss with a superbly searing run and finish into the far corner, but with a man advantage Koln inevitably rallied for a second equalizer.
