3-1 win in Berlin

FCB beat Union in Paulaner benefit clash

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.
