Union Berlin is looking for a new destination after reaching the 40-point brand. In the season end spurt, this can only be European Cup.
Urs Fischer remained with his iron retention. Congratulations on the league after reaching the 40-point brand in the Football Bundesliga, the coach of Union Berlin took timidly adopted. The Swiss did not proclaim the attack on the European Cup. “We will put together and define a realistic goal,” Fischer said only.
The renewed qualification for the international business would be such. 41 points have the Berliner after the hard went 1: 0 (0: 0) against the 1st FC Cologne in the account. In the preseason, as a Union as a seventh the Conference League reached, enough 50 meters. This number, Fischer said, “I could imagine.”
The game plan opposes Union. Three home games, two of them against the promoted VfL Bochum and SpVgg Greuther Fürth, are still on the program in the season end spurt. Added to this is the derby at the crisis city trival Hertha BSC next Saturday in the Olympic Stadium.
As a fist, the fans should prove. Against Cologne, the stadium was sold out for the first time with 22,012 spectators for the first time since November – and became more than fair to his reputation as a hex. “It’s another way again,” Fischer said, “In such a narrow game, it just helps you if you have full support in the back.”
The European Cup participation would also help with the further development of the trophy semi-finalist. The successes of the current season have succeeded despite a persistent change. Power providers such as Robert Andrich, Marvin Friedrich and Max Kruse left the club.
The defense chief Robin Knoche again convincing against Cologne extended his contract on Friday, but other prominent exits in summer are to be expected. An attacker Taiwo Awoniyi, who achieved the winner of Captain Jonas Hector by Cologne’s Captain Jonas Hector (49.), supposedly toying with a return to England.
The Premier League is the declared dream of the Nigerian, who was changed from FC Liverpool to Berlin. Several clubs should be interested in a commitment given the strong benefits in the Bundesliga. As a transfer fee, 30 million euros are allegedly in conversation. “It’s a nice sum, you have to say that for us that would be a departure in a whole new dimension,” said Managing Director Oliver Ruhnert at “Dazn”.
1. FC Cologne “A little disappointed”
Despite the setback in the old home state of Steffen Baumgart, the 1st FC Cologne can still make hopes for Europe. With 40 points, the FC is close behind Union. Patzer like the playing blackout of ex-national player Hector, the Awoniyi raised the hits with a completely failed return pass to goalkeeper Marvin Schwäbe, but must be parked for this.
“That we are a bit disappointed, everyone can imagine,” said Baumgart. The coach expressly adopted Hector in protection: “We lost by a mistake that can happen.”
