Awoniyi scores again as Union Berlin humbles Wolfsburg

Red hot Super Eagles striker, Taiwo Awoniyi, bagged his sixth goal of this season to help Union Berlin sting Wolfsburg.

The 2-0 win is Union Berlin's seventh league win of the season, and has now taken Urs Fischer’s men to fifth on the log, swapping places with Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga standings.

After the first half ended goalless, the hosts grabbed an early lead with just five minutes into the second half.

Genki Haraguchi touched Max Kruse’s pass into the path of Awoniyi, who showed exactly why he is rubbing shoulders with Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland at the top of the scoring charts with an accomplished finish past Koen Casteels.

Despite monopolizing the possession after going down, Wolfsburg didn't have many clear scoring opportunities thanks to Berlin's impressive defensive performance.

Union Berlin doubled the lead shortly before the stoppage time through Sheraldo Becker who nodded home a cross from Andreas Voglsammer.

Berlin will undoubtedly be satisfied with the victory, especially given how things unfolded in the second half while Wolfsburg would face Salzburg next week in the Champions League on the back of a disappointing loss.
