Liverpool Loanee Awoniyi The Hero For Union Berlin In Game No. 130 Of Pro Career
Taiwo Awoniyi was the hero for Union Berlin as they recorded a 2-0 road win against Werder Bremen at wohninvest WESERSTADION on Saturday.

Making his 130th appearance as a professional, the 2013 U17 World Cup winner was involved in both goals scored by Union Berlin, providing the assist for the opener before netting the insurance goal.

Twelve minutes in, Awoniyi and Becker found themselves in a two-v-two against the Bremen defence and the Nigerian set up his strike partner.

Four minutes later, the Liverpool loanee missed a chance to make it 2-0 when he shot over the target, but it wasn't long before he doubled the advantage as he poked the ball past goalkeeper Pavlenka just before the 30-minute mark.

In the 70th minute, Awoniyi came close to grabbing Union Berlin's third goal but his shot went over the crossbar.

The 23-year-old has directly contributed to seven goals (5 goals, 2 assists) in his last seven appearances in the German Bundesliga.

After 14 games, Union Berlin are fourth in the provisional standings with 24 points before they host Wolfsburg on January 9.
