Super Eagles-bound striker Taiwo Awoniyi was instrumental as Union Berlin continue in their quest for Champions League football with 1-0 victory over Bayern Leverkusen in the round sixteen fixtures of the German Bundesliga on Friday night.
Following a first half dominated by the more established Leverkusen, the ‘Berlin Iron’ were indeed resilient in dealing with the blistering pace of the Bayern Leverkusen attackers.
However, despite being on the back-foot for most of the first half actions, Uli Fitcher’s tutored side were able to calm the storm and caused their oponent several problems on the counter attack in the second half
Meanwhile, Awoniyi was unarguably one of the stand out players for Union, streching the Leverkusen back four with his strength and powerful playing style.
In the 88th minutes of the thrilling encounter, Union Berlin German midfielderer Christopher Lenz carved open the oponent backline with a through ball to Cedric Teuchert who got into one-on-one situation with Lukas Hradesky in goal for Leverkusen before scoring with a well taken shot.
After this victory, the ‘Union Irons’ remain in fourth position on the German Bundesliga table.
