Bundesliga: Union wins 2-0 against Wolfsburg

AJordan Siebatcheu only wears his first name on the kit. The last name, too long, too complicated. The gameplay of the is anything but complicated 1.FC Union Berlin, for which the American has been playing since this summer. Siebatcheu, a straightforward, robust penalty area striker, fits in perfectly with his skills.

That was impressive again against VfL Wolfsburg, when the United States international scored the important goal to make it 1-0 (54th minute). It was a typical goal from Berlin, prepared on the flanks. Sheraldo Becker found Siebatcheu's head with a precise cross. Becker later scored himself (77th), Union won 2-0.

The goals were among the few highlights of this uneventful football afternoon, but that didn't bother anyone in the stadium at the old Försterei who supported Union. The fans celebrated the fifth win of the season and the defense of the championship lead. Union is in first place for the second week in a row, and slowly the Berliners seem to be getting used to the role of Croesus, which is unfamiliar to them.

The start of the season for the smaller of the two Berlin clubs is remarkable on all levels, especially against the background of the immense strain. On Thursday, Union lost in the Europa League in distant Braga in Portugal (0-1). Coach Urs Fischer's team seemed less confident there, similar to the previous week against the Belgians from St. Gilloise (2-2). There is nothing to be seen of this in the Bundesliga, Union can apparently differentiate without any problems.
