DrDefense specialist Julian Ryerson knelt on the grass exhausted, and the rest of the Union Berlin pros looked a bit weary and exhausted. A few days after losing the top spot in the table, Köppnikerz suffered the next small setback in the Bundesliga in a 2-2 (2-2) win over FC Augsburg. However, fans celebrated their squad for minutes after the final whistle on Wednesday night for what has been an extraordinary season so far.
“It was a very tough match. I think Union had a little bit more share and a little more chances,” said Robin Vargas of Augsburg. “Now we take that point.”
Sheraldo Becker (7th minute) and Kevin Perrins (22) took the lead twice in an eventful first half in front of 2,2012 spectators. Florian Niederlechner answered the guests (8/39). “Ittihad worked well, we defended well. In the end we are happy with the draw,” Augsburg’s top scorer said on Sky. “They still had a few chances in the second half, we had almost no chances.”
The Berlin team has not lost so far in 13 league matches at home. The team jumped to second in the table but continued to lose ground to the leaders Bayern Munich. In the last match before the World Cup break, the Berlin players will play their rival SC Freiburg on Sunday (5.30 pm GMT). FAZ live tape of the German League and at DAZN).

Lots of chances for both sides
after this Disappointing performance in Leverkusen Fisher demanded a different appearance from his professionals. Augsburger has often started strong in the last few games. An exciting game developed rapidly in the Kopenic floodlights, with many chances for both teams.
It all started with Becker, who scored again after six league games without a goal. After winning the ball, former Augsburger Rani Khedira played a pass behind the defensive line. Former Federation promotion champ and current FCA goalkeeper Rafal Jekevich mistook him for running out. Becker turned it around without any problems and hit the ball from a tight angle.
The Augsburger answered immediately. A bad throw-in by the union landed in Niederlechner and the ball shortly thereafter into the right corner. As a result, the hosts fought more of the match again and were especially dangerous from crosses. Fischer once again benefited from the breadth of his team: Burns – both new to the starting line-up – headed in a Nico Gisselmann free kick without a hitch. But once again Niederlechner proved his goal instinct. An acrobatic shot from Ermdin Demirovic’s cross crossed into the net.
After the break, the residents of Berlin pressed. Gießelmann hit the crossbar with a free kick from a central position (48′). Burns hit the post after a counterattack with a header (68). The FCA barely came seriously in front of the hosts’ goal. Instead, substitute Genki Haraguchi Jekevich tested again with a long-range shot (86 minutes). But it is no longer enough for the people of Berlin to win.
