With three wins from three games, five goals scored and none conceded, Union Berlin are the only team in the German first and second divisions still with a 100 percent record this season. For Bayern, without a league victory this term, Wednesday evening’s friendly meeting with the Bundesliga 2 leaders was a genuine test of skill and character.
Louis van Gaal’s men duly obliged with a decent display and a good result. A 19,000 full house at the Alten Försterei stadium in the east of the German capital saw Munich win 3-1, a morale boosting victory coming four days after a 2-1 defeat in Mainz, and three days ahead of the crunch encounter with champions VfL Wolfsburg.
