3: 1 at Waldorf Mannheim
Union Berlin advanced to the 16th round of the DFB Cup after extra time
Union beat third division Waldhof Mannheim just 3-1 (after extra time) in the second round of the Berlin DFB Cup. The third division was the team that decided most of the game.
The Bundesliga football team Union Berlin has reached the 16th round of the DFB Cup. The team won 3-1 in the third division Waldorf Mannheim. Hosts Alexander Rosibal (4th min) scored – Kevin Behrens (18th and 118th) and Taiwo Avoni (95th) scored for Union. The draw for the round of 16 pairs will take place on Sunday 31st October.
The trend of the game
In comparison Union coach Urs Fischer moved his team to four stages for the Bundesliga game at VfB Stuttgart (1: 1). Niko Gießelmann, Rani Khedira and Taiwo Awoniyi have been replaced by Bastian Osipka, Kevin Behrens and Andreas Vauxhall Summer. Andreas Luth, Frederick Ronov were on goal. Dan had to drop four minutes later.
After a Mannheim corner that was initially defended, Waldhof’s Marc Schnatterer was able to defend in front of Alexander Rosibal’s legs with an unstoppable Rono on the right. The defender had little difficulty in getting the ball over the line from close range.
Trade union efforts for an immediate response were initially unsatisfactory. Mannheim intervened early and with several players, so the Berliners threw bad passes. It was only in the 18th minute that the guests came dangerously in front of the Waldorf goal for the first time and equalized directly. Defensive captain Robin Nosh’s long ball led precisely to winger Sheraldo Becker. Andreas Vauxhall effectively put his side to Kevin Behrens, who was lurking in the center, he activated it with his left foot and lowered it straight from about six meters, which was noticeable and unacceptable. As a result, the chances were slim and Mannheim was a very stressful team.
Awoniyi makes a difference
The picture did not change at the start of the second half of the game. Union did not come under attack and Waldorf ordered the game, but neither side had real goal chances. Berlin coach Fischer reacted and brought in regulars Rani Kedira and Taiwo Avoni in the course of the second half. However, defensive boss Robin Noch was the only real chance to score after a corner by Christopher Trimmel. But Mannheim was only able to destroy the deflected shot. In the second minute of stoppage time, the ball fell not over the line but into the hands of Mannheim goalkeeper John-Christophe Bartels after an attempt by Taiwo Avoni from about five meters.
In the ensuing extension of the match, Avoni quickly made it better and Union won 2-1 in the 95th minute. What a win it was: getting the ball, turning and carrying the ball with you in a fluid motion, followed by a left foot shot from a distance of 16 meters. If you are wondering how to say that Union is the first division, you should get your answer in this scenario. In the 118th minute, after Mannheim’s defensive error, Kevin Behrens won 3-1 and was sent straight from the edge of the penalty area.
For the entire duration of the Union game it was very difficult to build the game against early, agile and maneuvering employees. If anything, it’s just before the 1-1 draw from Kevin Behrenz, with a long, opening pass from defense captain Robin Nosh. Or a 2-1 lead by a single move like Taiwo Avonii. In return, despite the firm performance of the third division team, the defense was never really in danger, so goalkeeper Frederick Ronno had little to do from the opening goal after a corner kick.
That’s what the network says
This only works for Kevin Behrens:
