Liverpool Loanee Awoniyi Makes Union Berlin Debut Against Borussia Mönchengladbach
Liverpool loanee Taiwo Awoniyi took to the field for the first time in Union Berlin colours as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Borussia Mönchengladbach at the Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK on Saturday, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

The former Nigeria international was named in the starting lineup by manager Urs Fischer and was in action for 58 minutes before making way for Ingvartsen.

Awoniyi was presented with a chance to open the scoring but saw his first-time volley miss the target in the 15th minute and just past the half-hour mark he attempted to knock in the rebound after Becker’s shot came back off the crossbar.

Two minutes before the Nigerian subbed out, Borussia Mönchengladbach took the lead through Marcus Thuram but Schlotterbeck brought the visitors level in the 79th minute.

This is the seventh time Awoniyi has been farmed out on loan since joining Liverpool in 2015, with Union Berlin his sixth different club and third in Germany, having previously worn the colours of FSV Frankfurt and Mainz 05.

The 23-year-old could make his home debut for Union Berlin against his former club Mainz 05 on October 2.
