Leonardo Bonucci’s debut on the bench didn’t bring luck to Union Berlin, who suffered their first home defeat in 18 months in a game on matchday three of the Bundesliga, and their first in the league. Leipzig was the loot at the Alte Försterei in the German capital, thanks to a goal by Xavi Simons and a brace by Sesko in the second half, which Union played for a long time in ten for the expulsion of the striker Volland .
On the Leipzig bench was Marco Rose, coach of Borussia Dortmund who, in February 2022, had been the last team to bring home the three points from Berlin. Red Bull Leipzig, who started the season by beating Bayern Munich 3-0 in the German Super Cup, are considered a real enemy by Union fans, the representation of an opposite system, in approach and purpose, to what they consider more genuine for a football club. To confirm their position, the fans remained in total silence for the first 15′ of the match. In the standings, Union and Leipzig are now both six points behind the leading duo of Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen -3.
