Union Berlin’s coach, Nenad Bjelica, was seen pacing wildly through his coaching zone during the team’s first game after serving a suspension. Despite appearing tense at the start of the game, he was relieved to see his team secure a 3-0 win against VfL Wolfsburg.
The issue of the long protest with tennis balls was quickly pushed aside as Union focused on their victory. With 21 points, they have managed to catch up with the lower midfield and increase their safety cushion on the relegation zone.
One of the strengths that helped Union secure their win was their home strength, which has been rediscovered. The team also showed defensive stability and scored goals from set pieces, which were crucial in turning things around. However, the offense still remains a construction site and games can be difficult to watch at times.
Despite luck playing a part in their fourth home win, Union’s defensive trend is positive overall. Bjelica has given his team two days off as a reward for their strong performance and will look forward to seeing them carry their recent progress into an away game.
