Union Berlin vs Augsburg
Date: 11 September 2021, Saturday
Kick-Off: 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Alte Forsterei.
Union Berlin welcome Augsburg on their home turf at the Alte Forsterei as both these sides will be looking to get a few points on the board.
The home side currently sit in 8th position in the table with 5 points on bard after 3 league games. They have won once and drawn the other two games.
The hosts come into this game on the back of a 2-1 win against Monchengladbach and a 2-0 club-friendly win over Lichtenberg.
Against Monchengladbach, Niko Gießelmann and Taiwo Awoniyi scored for the Die Eisernen in the 22nd and 41st minute of the game respectively.
That game is a huge boost for Berlin as they will be ready to fire on all cylinders against Augsburg.
On the other hand, the visitors currently sit in the relegation zone with just 1 point in 3 games. They come on the back of a trashing 4-1 loss to Leverkusen as their goal difference is shattered.
Florian Niederlechner scored a consolation goal for Augsburg in the 30th minute of the game who also scored an own goal in that game.
That game also saw an own goal from Iago in the 3rd minute of the game which added to the frustrations of their manager, Markus Weinzierl.
Their task of getting away from the drop zone has become more tough, but with many game weeks left in the season, the away side can still improve their points on board.
