Football Bundesliga: Union Berlin versus Bayern – live ticker – 30th matchday – 2023/2024



At FC Bayern it looks a bit like administrative mode. Nevertheless, you remain largely in control. 65 percent ball possession speaks for Thomas Tuchel’s team, the better passing rate anyway (92 percent) and even in duels they are slightly ahead, which is a sign of the necessary attitude.



After falling behind, the Köpenick team intensified their efforts. At the same time, the guests are taking things a little easier. The defense of the Champions League semi-finalist is still strong.



Union is now trying to respond. From the left, Lucas Tousart hits it with his right foot. The ball flutters towards the near corner. Manuel Neuer has to be on his guard, but he blocks well. Shortly afterwards, András Schäfer also fired, but only hit the side netting on the left.



With his fifth goal of the season in the Bundesliga, Leon Goretzka puts the record champions on track. The leadership is fine up to this point. The guests did more overall and developed more of a move towards the goal.



Great for Bayern Munich, 0-1 by Leon Goretzka

In a half-right position, Mathys Tel carries the ball and looks for a gap. When the Frenchman spots this, he plays the ball flat into the penalty area. Thomas Müller cleverly lets the ball through because he knows full well that Leon Goretzka’s position is behind it. The midfielder takes the ball and shoots with his right foot into the right corner from a good eleven meters in an almost central position.



But even if Thomas Tuchel’s team is only aiming for runner-up in the Bundesliga, the players shouldn’t let their guard down anyway. After all, everyone wants to be involved in the big games against Real Madrid. It is important to recommend yourself for these starting positions.



Basically, FC Bayern works well defensively. In every transition situation, the guests always get behind the ball quickly enough with enough people. So far there are no doubts about the seriousness of the approach.



Now the hosts switch quickly again and attack from the right. In fact, Union manages to get into the box with Christopher Trimmel’s cross. Robin Gosens struggles for the header there but doesn’t get it under control. But the statisticians can swing their pen and note the Iron Men’s first shot at goal.

Munich’s ball possession values ​​are constantly increasing. You definitely make it into the penalty area on a regular basis. But then the shop will be closed at the latest.



Joshua Kimmich hits it from a distance. This right-handed shot fits in with the final actions that have recently been relatively harmless. At least there have already been five shots from the guests. The Köpenicker account is still orphaned.



Now the Iron Men have a moment of change and storm into the box with Benedict Hollerbach on the right. The record champions, however, are working well backwards. And ultimately Leon Goretzka clears the ball and kicks it to the side.



Then Mathys Tel crosses from the right side. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting gets into position behind a Berlin defender, then goes for the header, but doesn’t catch it hard enough. The ball flies clearly past the far corner.



Gradually the guests gain more of the game and spend more time in the opponent’s half. Union is now in a better position at the back and is no longer offering any gaps.



Alphonso Davies is on the left and wants to bring the ball sharply towards the goal. Lucas Tousart is hit on the foot from close range and there is no tension at all. This is how it twists the joint. Of course it’s painful, but the Frenchman grits his teeth.



Ultimately, Kevin Volland even takes care of two corner kicks in quick succession – one from the left and the other from the right. In both cases, high crosses fly into the box, but the hosts are unable to score a significant goal.



The home side continue to have regular possession of the ball and try to get into the penalty area via a cross from Christopher Trimmel. This is successful in that it leads to a corner for Union.



For now, the record champions are working more purposefully and have already recorded three final acts. The Iron Men, on the other hand, are still waiting for their first shot at goal and have only had one shot on the ball in the opponent’s box.



Now Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting steps on the left side, moves a few meters towards the middle and then hits it with his right foot. The ball bounces past the short corner.

Then it’s Union’s turn again. Furthermore, the game is pretty open. Ball possession is practically evenly distributed. It is no longer the law that FC Bayern has to have more possession of the ball.



Shortly afterwards, Harry Kane looks for the finish from the second row. The right-footed shot from a half-right position flies towards the goal. Frederik Rønnow raises both fists and blocks.



In this phase, the guests pay more attention to the ball and get into the box for the first time via a free kick from Joshua Kimmich. However, there is no buyer there.



The Iron Ones continue to be very active. Nobody has to be afraid of Bayern in the Bundesliga at the moment. Will we also experience this today in Wuhlheide? Or are the record champions playing in Champions League mode?



There is a lot of lighting going on at the Alte Försterei. However, most of the smoke goes upwards. This doesn’t bother the game for the time being. And Union immediately shifts into forward gear. Christopher Trimmel crosses from the right. Robin Gosens lets the ball through, which irritates Manuel Neuer, who doesn’t get a chance either. András Schäfer misses at the second post.



Game start


And when you look at the balance sheet so far, things are looking shady for Union. The Berliners have never been able to win a competitive game against Bayern, but are now making their tenth attempt. The Iron Men were only able to win three draws, the last of which was a 1-1 draw here in Wuhlheide last season. The last Munich guest game before that was 2:5 in October 2021.


With 25 goals this season, Union has the second weakest offense in the league. In any case, the Köpenickers are always happy to be able to compete at home, because they scored 20 of their 29 points at the Alte Försterei. And in the second half of the season, the Iron Men only have four points less than FC Bayern. Finally, however, the engine sputtered. They have been waiting for a goal for three games. After a 0-0 draw in Frankfurt, there were defeats against Leverkusen (0:1) and in Augsburg (0:2). The last three points go back to a 2-1 win against Wolfsburg in mid-March.

The best attack in the league with 82 goals did not help Munich significantly this season. The men from the Bavarian capital conceded too many goals (36) and suffered many defeats for their standards (six, four of them away). Especially in the second half of the season, FCB lost ground and left the field as losers five times. After the mistakes at home against Dortmund (0:2) and in Heidenheim (2:3), the record champions were at least able to convince in the premier class against FC Arsenal (2:2, 1:0). In between there was a 2-0 win against Cologne. However, the last away win was a good month ago, which was 5-2 in Darmstadt.


From a table perspective, the thirteenth hosts the second. While the Iron Men’s goal is to keep their distance from the relegation zone, currently three points from the relegation place, FC Bayern have now finally lost their championship title. From now on, it is important to secure the top 4 position and, ideally, become runner-up. But Stuttgart, who are tied on points, will have objections to this. And given that they reached the Champions League semi-finals, the record champions could potentially continue to struggle in the Bundesliga.


Compared to the 2-0 defeat in Augsburg a week ago, Nenad Bjelica made three changes. Instead of Rani Khedira, Alex Král and Mikkel Kaufmann (all bench), Robin Gosens (back after yellow-red suspension), Lucas Tousart (back after yellow suspension) and Kevin Volland move into the Köpenick starting eleven. There are six changes on the guests’ side after Wednesday’s 1-0 win in the Champions League against Arsenal FC. Matthijs de Ligt, Raphaël Guerreiro, Noussair Mazraoui, Konrad Laimer (all bench), Jamal Musiala (rest) and Leroy Sané (pubic bone problems) are not in the Munich starting lineup. To do this, Thomas Tuchel ordered Min-jae Kim, Alphonso Davies, Aleksandar Pavlović, Thomas Müller, Mathys Tel and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting onto the pitch from the start today.
