1. FC Union is regaining its form – especially at home

1. FC Union Berlin’s coach, Nenad Bjelica, expressed a mix of relief and joy after the team’s 1-0 win against VfL Wolfsburg. Bjelica had been serving a suspension and was able to return to the sidelines and contribute to the team’s success in the game. He hugged his coaching staff and expressed how emotional it was to gain three points after such a hard-fought game.

Despite being the dominant team, Wolfsburg faced a loss due to Union’s strong defense. Union’s offense remains a work in progress, but their defensive stability is improving. The focus was on the controversy surrounding the game, but Union Berlin wanted to push this issue aside and focus on their win.

With 21 points, Union has caught up with the lower midfield and increased their safety cushion on the relegation zone. The team has managed to leave behind a miserable autumn with twelve defeats in a row and has rediscovered their strengths in home games, defensive stability, and goals from set pieces.

Danilho Doekhi, who scored the winning goal, was praised by Bjelica for playing 90 minutes three times in six days after a long-term injury. As a reward for their efforts, the team was given two days off before preparing for their next away game.

Union’s next goal is to carry their recent progress into an away game and aim for victory. Their last victory abroad was in August, and they are eager to bring that success into their upcoming away game in Hoffenheim.

In conclusion, Nenad Bjelica expressed his emotions after his team’s win against VfL Wolfsburg while focusing on moving past controversies surrounding the game. With improvements in defensive stability and set piece goals, Union Berlin has managed to catch up with the lower midfield and increase their safety cushion on the relegation zone.
