82 minutesIn any case, one point would not be enough for Union. In the home game against a relegated club, you should or would like to emphasize your European ambitions.

81 minutesIn Fürth it will be a battle against time, the guests do not have much left on the tank. Can they save the lead to the finish?

78 minutesIt hurt: Fürth enters the opponent’s penalty area, Asta rushes into a free kick, it’s half sprint, half tackle. The same goes for Knoche’s rescue operation, which was the last man to throw himself into the ball. Both rattle against each other, after a short treatment both can play on.

Knoche looks yellow to complain.

76 minutesThe game knows only one direction. Union makes steam, wants the second goal. Fürth hardly creates any relief.

Double change at Fürth: Willems out, Bauer in.

73 minutesMichel’s third goal of the season was a gift. The Union does not care.

Goal!
72 minutes – GOOOOO!

Sven Michael

hurray! UNION BERLIN – Greuther Furth 1: 1. Giant goat from Viergever! Building play by Fürth, goalkeeper Linde with the short pass to Viergever, who dribbles against Michel in the six-meter field – and loses the ball! Michel says thank you and pushes into the orphan goal.

Taiwo Awoniyi

Taiwo Awoniyi

Double change at Union: Awoniyi gives way to Behrens.

67 minutesNext chance a little later. Trimmel crosses into the field from the right half of the field, Voglsammer gives his first proof of work with his head, but Linde certainly has. Get too centered on the box.

66 minutesIn any case, the Union is finding more space. Knoche from midfield with the half left pass into the penalty area to Becker, who shoots from eight yards. For central, linden wood is there.

64 minutesIt remains to be seen whether this is due to the dwindling strength of the clover leaf or more aggressiveness and a better division of space by the Köpenicks.

62 minutesIt looks like a transition phase: Union wins advantages in midfield, Fürth hardly emerges constructively. The Köpenicks are not obligatory yet, but the weight is tilting in their direction.

60 minutesAgain Köpenicker. Awoniyi plays sharply in front of the goal from the left corner of the penalty area, Becker cleverly puts the body in and hires two defenders. The ball slips to Prömel, who will cross with a pick – Linde grabs the ball.

57 minutesIt took almost ten minutes before Union shot on goal for the first time in the second round. Khedira’s cross from the left is clarified in the backfield, Prömel saves a volley from 17 meters, but sends the ball well over.

56 minutesTillman’s cross falls into the five meter long room, briefly restless, many legs protruding through the area. In the end, Union can make it into the backcourt, Itter’s distance attempt flies into Berlin’s night sky.

54 minutesLeweling brings the appropriate free kick from the right half of the field deep to the left into the box. Hrgota’s attempt to post is cleared by Jaeckel in goal. There is a corner …

Julian Ryerson

Julian Ryerson

Ryerson is late for Raschl.

52 minutesAnd suddenly there are huge premises for Fürth! Union gets stuck in the construction, Fürth pushes and conquers the ball. Then Ngankam has a lot of space on the right side of the penalty area, not a Unioner far out. In the middle, Jaeckel is the only remaining defender, Hrgota lurks close to the penalty spot, but Ngankam’s pass comes too close to the goal. There was more to it!

50 minutesThe Köpenicker initially noted longer ball relays, but also the work against the ball – which was rarely asked before the break – works with the cloverleaf.

47 minutesWith the addition of Voglsommer, Union now has three strikers.

46 minutesNo changes at Fürth. Continue!

Genki Haraguchi

Genki Haraguchi

The unobtrusive Haraguchi stays in the locker room, Voglsommer is new.

Turned roles: Fürth, who relegated, controlled the game, showed goal-oriented attacking football and led deservedly 1-0. Union acted unexpectedly passively and had only a few moments on the offensive. Fischer’s speech becomes clear.

First half whistle

45 minutes (+1)Then there is a break! Union 0, Fuerth 1.

45 minutes (+1)Free kick to Union, to the right of the penalty area. Left-footed Gießelmann pulls the ball straight into goal – easy prey for Linde.

45 minutesOne minute is played again.

43 minutesImagination looks different. Knoche finds no passing station in the build-up, just thrashes the leather up to the top. Awoniyi is in a lost position there, the pass that is too steep is easy prey for Linde.

40 minutesUnion increases the intensity of the duels a bit. However, Fürth does not really get into trouble, Union does not win any balls in critical zones, Fürth can play free.

37 minutesAnd Fürth stays on the trigger. The visitors continue to play happily forward, Union gets too little access in large parts of the midfield. Since the relegated at times combined easier than it may be right for Urs Fischer. Will he react during the break?

35 minutesThis is Hrgota’s ninth goal of the season. And for the Union, the recognition of expandable performance. So far, Köpenicker owes a lot.

Goal!
33 minutes – GOOOOO!

Branimir Hrgota

hurray! Union Berlin – GREUTHER FUERTH 0: 1. Shamrock leads! A free kick in the half is headed by Knoche in the penalty area, but right in front of the feet of Hrgota, who hits the half right in the box from ten meters into the top left corner, which is worth seeing!

32 minutesGießelmann takes the free kick due to the right in the box to the six-yard box, Itter comes into the fight with his foot and diverts the ball involuntarily but harmlessly to his own goal. No problem for Linde.

31 minutes – Yellow card

Jetro Willems

Jetro Willems

And yellow to Willems, who complains a lot about this decision. Too much for Judge Ittrich’s taste.

30 minutesRight-footed Trimmel serves to the second post, where Willems initially clears the ball with a header. Union remains in ball possession, Becker wants to cross, but Willems fends off the ball with his hand. Free kick for the Berliners.

29 minutesNext standard: Union is awarded a free kick on the left wing. Right at the edge of the penalty area …

27 minutesUnion at least with a corner. In short, Becker’s cross has been cleared.

26 minutesThe numbers do not sound like a European candidate playing against a relegation team. Fürth has more ball possession (58 percent), the better the chances – and gets more passes to the man proportionally (83 percent).

Dominique Heintz

Dominique Heintz

Heintz heads off the field, Ryerson replaces him.

23 minutesThe game is interrupted, Heintz sits on the ground. He appears to be having problems with his right ankle. The treatment is running.

22 minutesUnion should not complain about guiding guests. On the one hand, due to the good chances of the clover leaf. On the other hand, due to the passive gait of the Berliners.

20 minutesShamrocken again! Leweling serves Hrgota 20 meters from the goal, which stands against Haraguchi and shoots powerfully to the left corner. It was not lacking much.

18 minutesDouble chance Fürth! Leweling is sent deep to the right, he plays sharply inside. Ngankam and Hrgota miss and the ball lands on Raschl at the entrance to the penalty area. And he hits the ball on the crossbar!

15 minutesWillems is played on the flank, will let the ball through and asked for it. But Trimmel also saw Vinicius Jr. against City.

13 minutesIn fact, Union is trying to get more possession of the ball. And that quickly results in a first-half chance. Trimmel sends Becker down the right lane, so the sharp ball inside – Awoniyi misses narrowly!

11 minutesAnd where! The game shifted to the right edge of the penalty area, Trimmel in the first contact inside, Awoniyi shoots right next to it from eight yards to the right.

10 minutesFirst chance for Fürth! Asta has room on the right, crosses halfway up the box. The ball goes through to Hrgota, who has a free throw from ten meters, but does not hit the play equipment properly. Should, however, awaken Union.

8 minutesAwoniyi and Becker make a lot of “empty” paths. The Berliners do not (yet) take the pressing too seriously, so the two strikers swing back and forth somewhere near the center line. And are spectators in the front row.

6 minutesAnd this is what the first minutes look like: Fürth with what feels like 90 percent ball possession and a calm passing game in their own ranks. The visitors have already won two corner balls, but have not yet created any danger.

3 minutesTactics or coincidence? Union initially allows Fürth, the guests can calmly build up their game. The Berliners are not pushing very hard. About the center line.

kick-off

1 minuteThe ball is rolling!

Before the game startsThe referee in charge of the match is Patrick Ittrich. Guido Winkmann is in action as VAR.

Before the game startsSome Kleeblatt fans should still have cheerful thoughts today, after all, something historic happened in the first match: The first Bundesliga home win in Fürth’s history was achieved against Union.

Before the game startsThe guests’ motto is the start of the farewell trip. After the direct return to league 2 was on the way for a long time, it was rectified last week: Fürth improved in the second half of the season, but the trenches were already too deep, the savings bank was just a wishful thinking. On top of that, it is certain that the chief instructor is traveling: Stefan Leitl is moving to Hanover.

Before the game startsThe Köpenicks are currently in sixth place, one point ahead of Cologne, so they have the European business in their own hands, especially as the rest of the program seems “feasible”, at least at home: After Fürth, VfL Bochum is waiting for the last day of the game . Occasionally we go to Freiburg.

Before the game startsAfter Leipzig and Leipzig are ahead of Fürth: Union made two guest appearances in RB, the road to the cup final was blocked for the Berliners and there were three points in the league. Important three points. Because Fischer’s team enters the season finale with a good starting position …

Before the game startsThere is also a change for the guests after 1: 4 against Leverkusen: Leweling starts for Green (bench).

Before the game startsHow Greuther Fürth begins (5-2-3): Linde – Asta, Griesbeck, Viergever, Itter, Willems – Tillman, Raschl – Leweling, Ngankam, Hrgota.

Before the game startsUrs Fischer makes a change after the 2-1 victory against RB Leipzig: Haraguchi plays instead of Schäfer (Covid-19).

Before the game startsThe starting lineup of Union Berlin (3-4-2-2): Rönnow – Jaeckel, Knoche, Heintz – Trimmel, Khedira, Gießelmann – Haraguchi, Prömel – Awoniyi, Becker.

Before the game startsWelcome to the 32nd matchday between Union Berlin and SpVgg Greuther Fürth in the Bundesliga.
