Taiwo Awoniyi shines as Union Berlin defeat Wolfsburg

Taiwo Awoniyi scored his sixth goal of the season to help Union Berlin swap places with Wolfsburg in the table with a 2-0 win in the capital, taking Urs Fischer’s men fifth in the standings.
The international break was an opportunity for a reset for Wolfsburg coach Mark van Bommel, who had seen his side’s flying start to the season evaporate with a run of five games without a win.
He took a bold decision in leaving Wout Weghorst and Ridle Baku on the bench, and his team had a similar mentality as they took the game to their hosts.
Chances were at a premium, though, and the first real opening was scuppered by Maximilian Philipp, who tried to lob Andreas Luthe after he got caught off his line, but his effort also cleared the crossbar. Neither goalkeeper would actually have to make a save in the first 45 minutes, but that soon changed in the second half.
