Union Berlin has the opening game of the 3. Bundesliga match day scores with 4:0 (1:0) against FSV Mainz 05 have won. The goals for the home side, scored by Max Kruse (13. Minute), Marcus Ingvartsen (49.), Marvin Friedrich (63.) and Joel Pohjanpalo (64.).

After the convincing 1:1 in the second round against Borussia Mönchengladbach Union coach Urs Fischer has changed on two positions: For Marius Bülter and Taiwo Awoniyi Marcus Ingvartsen and Max Kruse were from the beginning. To be compared to Jan-Moritz Lichte joined in his first game as head coach of the 05 three Times in comparison to the 1:4 home defeat against VfB Stuttgart: For Ridle Baku (switching to VfL Wolfsburg) Moussa Niakhaté (Yellow-Red-lock) and Leandro Barreiro (Bank) began to Alexander Hack, Philipp Mwene and Pierre customer Malong.

At the start of the game that Fischer showed, in particular, with Kruse in with the right people. The captain of the Iron was involved in the initial phase of almost all offensive actions of the main townsfolk. In the 13. Minutes it was that Kruse, who left the Alte Försterei for the first Time to cheer.

In the case of the first well-structured attack from Union Robert Andrich has played Sheraldo Becker on the right-hand side value-free. The edge headed Kruse on the second post scores to 1:0 in the mesh. It was his first goal for Union Berlin.

After a short gasp of Mainz took over the Iron now finally in command. Through intelligent Pressing in the opponent’s half of the house of lords gave the FSV no way offensive to take place and could always switch back dangerous and fast. Once again, Becker and Kruse were the main actors that can be in the middle of the second half of 2:0 would. In the case of Becker’s submission of the Ex-Bremer Kruse 27, however, half a step too late (.).

Mainz practically without a Chance in the first round

And the Mainz? Over the entire first half was to see the FSV little to nothing to. It is only in the 38. Minute, Jean-Philippe Mateta recorded statistically, the first shot of the guests. His Header went past however, clearly in the case of Berlin.

If it was once, quickly in the ranks of the Mainz Union always had an answer. According to Boetius’ steep pass Quaison came within a hair in a promising Position. Friedrich from parted the Swedes, however, have no sense of humour (43.).

After the break, Alexander Hack could prevent first of all, the lightning start of the Berlin with a resolute action against Invartsen. A short time later, it rang but:

Trimmel was an edge to the criminal free-standing Ingvartsen, thanking me and with the left foot to 2:0 into the far corner met (49.).

Again Mainz was egged on by conceding a goal. The usually relatively uncoordinated counter-attacks were in the Sand. Mateta had the best chance, but was stopped consistently by schlotterbeck (53.)

Iron double strike – Pohjanpalo hits 35 seconds after coming off the bench

After the short gasp of the 05 Union got the game back in the handle. With a free-kick from the right half of the field Trimmel found the optimal worn Friedrich – 3:0 (63.). The decision in this game.

But the evening should still be a little uncomfortable for the Mainz. Immediately after the goal the Union in a joined-coach fishers new arrival Pohjanpalo, which required, apparently, no start-up time. 35 seconds after he had entered the place, landed a deflected in on loan from Leverkusen. Pohjanpalo not hit the Ball right on the first attempt, but was not allowed repositioning kindly Use the Mainzer behind the team and hit from a few meters to the fourth goal (64.).

After the freestyle, the duty followed for the Union: The house of lords played defensively very compact and physically robust the last few minutes. Mainz was no further scoring more. Pohjanpalo could have been even lace up his double-pack. 05-goalkeeper talents parried but strong (81.).

Union sends a very strong signal, and with four points from their first three Games, third in the table.

For Mainz, the false start is with the 0:4 in the main cities perfectly. The 05ers have lost all three opening games of this season.

Mainz after the international break (17. October), Bayer Leverkusen is guest. Union Berlin comes the following day against FC Schalke 04.
