The Ball flew back through the air, from one side to the other and back again. Back-and-forth. It's a bit of bad Tennis, what is the 1 had in the meantime. FC Union and the SV Sandhausen offered the of 19,542 spectators in the Stadion an der Alten forsterei. "It was not clear that today is about beautiful football," said debutant Nicolai Rapp. "Therefore, we are with the three points." Thanks to goals from Sebastian Andersson and Akaki Gogia who is the Berliner won on Saturday 2:0 (1:0), and push on to St. Pauli over again on the rise relegation place.
good news was the contract extension by Christopher Trimmel already before the kick-off. The captain returned to abgesessener lock, as well as Ken Reichel on the other side back in the starting lineup. As a replacement for the yellow-locked, Manuel schmiedebach, coach Urs Fischer has decided, somewhat surprisingly for a new addition to Rapp. In the Offensive of the Swiss continued on the sides of Andersson on the fast Suleiman Abdullahi and Carlos Mané.
The error rate was for both Teams, high
As in the last home game against Cologne, the Berlin started very awake. Although it lasted until 1:0, this Time a bit longer than 25 seconds, the Union had the action but safely under control. Andersson guest goalkeeper Marcel shoes examined after not even two minutes with a header but the ball and the Swede was also the a short time later the scoring leaders. From a corner of Trimmel Marvin Friedrich failed to shoes, Andersson reacted the quickest and headed in from a few meters.
Sandhausen had a highly helpless, and so the question rose, as the guests from Baden-Württemberg's last three goals against Bochum were successful. More than high balls Sandhausen brought did not materialize and, against a defence with Friedrich and Florian Hübner, this is the worst match plan, you can think of.
With her destructive style succeeded to the guests but at least to put a brake on the Union's initial forward thrust. The Berlin left by the opponent infected and so the significant game came advantages as well as the enormous speed of Abdullahi and Mané only rarely to the development. "In some phases we played too direct and the Ball often to the front gekloppt," said Trimmel. "We should have more peace inside."
Union was still clearly dangerous. In the middle of the first half of a Abstaubertor of Grischa Prömel has been ruled out for Offside, but almost with the stroke of half-time struck Andersson with a good cross from Trimmel volley over the crossbar. Also the most beautiful attack of the day, the Swede was involved. After the departure of knockout in three against players over Andersson played a decent Pass to Felix Kroos, who put the cross on Abdullahi. The Nigerians had met in about as much space as the approximately 60 sand houses Fans in the sparsely occupied, guests block the Ball but unclean. So Berlin had to leave at half-time for the criticism to have the game in spite of good chances early on decided.
Better the game after the break was not, quite the contrary. The rate of errors increased on both sides and so the Ball flipperte without a trace of culture between the penalty areas. Union luck was on this day that Sandhausen was simply too bad to take advantage of the great problems of Berlin. It took 65 minutes, until the guests came at all dangerous in the penalty area. And as you managed after a cross by Dennis Diekmeier, joined the Fabian Schleusener from eight meters criminally free-standing over the Ball.More about

Fischer, the appearance didn't like his team, obviously, and so he brought with Akaki Gogia who Robert Zulj and Joshua Mees three new creative players. Was not nice the game, Gogia who led after a beautiful Pass from Mees with the goal to 2:0 in the 87. Minute, but at least the decision. Shortly afterwards, scraped Trimmel still a Ball of the own goal line. "Such games," said Union captain, "you have to win."
