Union Berlin have surprised many by emerging as the early front-runners in the Bundesliga this season. They’ll be hoping to prove to everyone that they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, when they take on Frankfurt this weekend.
The Europa League champions are seventh in the Bundesliga after seven games (W3 D2 L2). Frankfurt are one point behind fifth-placed Bayern and six behind their weekend opponents.
It’s been an incredible start to the season for Union, who sit top following their unbeaten start to the season. It’s four wins in their last five as they look to keep their two-point lead over Dortmund at the summit.
Sheraldo Becker has been integral to Union’s success so far, forming a devastating partnership up front with Jordan Siebatcheu. It’s seen Becker lead the way in the Golden Boot standings after six goals in seven games.
