Bundesliga: Awoniyi to star in cracking Berlin derby

Mazino Dickson, Abuja


Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi will star with club side Union Berlin in a cracking local derby with Hertha Berlin.

The  24-year old has scored seven goals in eleven appearances in the Bundesliga, and would fancy his scoring chances.

In fact, Awoniyi has also found profit on the continent – scoring four goals and registering an assist.

Having been omitted from the Super Eagles last World Cup qualifiers, the €8 million rated Awoniyi will want to prove himself yet again to national team selectors.

City Tales

But this weekend,  it will be a battle-royale as East meets West.

Union Berlin are based in East Berlin while their more affluent neighbours  and hosts are West of the City.

It will be 90-minutes of non-stop attacking football at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.

Only three points seperate Union (7th position) from Hertha (14th position) and anything can happen in this ‘Berlin Klassic.’
