Line-up Fact

  • For the first time in more than two years (and therefore the first time under Marco Rose), RBL have used the same starting XI in back-to-back Bundesliga games. 

Goal Facts

  • Xavi Simons has now scored a goal in his last two games, having previously netted to make it 5-1 against Stuttgart. It was also the 900th league goal scored by RB Leipzig (Oberliga to Bundesliga).
  • Benjamin Šeško scored his first two Bundesliga goals to make it 2-0 and then 3-0. 
  • The goal to make it 3-0 was the 100th RBL goal scored under head coach Marco Rose.
  • We have scored the last nine of our ten goals this term in the second half. 

Goalscorer Facts

  • Benjamin Henrichs and Dani Olmo both provided their first assists of the season. 
  • Xavi was once again involved in two goals in a single match. In addition to scoring once himself, he also set up Šeško for our second of the night. His five goal involvements are the second-most in the division, behind Victor Boniface (Bayer 04 Leverkusen; 6). 

Win Facts

  • Just like last weekend against Stuttgart, RBL managed to beat the team sitting top of the table going into the matchday. 
  • Head coach Marco Rose has now won 31 of his 45 competitive games in charge of the club, including 21 wins from 32 league games. 

Streak Facts

  • Each of our last six (!) games against Union ended with a scoreline of 2-1. This time, there was finally a different result. 
  • After losing 2-1 in each of our last five league games against Union, we have finally put an end to this negative run. 
  • 1. FC Union Berlin’s run of 24 Bundesliga home games without defeat, the longest ongoing run of any side in the league, has finally come to an end. 
  • The last coach to win away at FCU prior to this run was Leipzig’s Marco Rose, when he travelled to Köpenick in February 2022 with Borussia Dortmund. 

Table Facts

  • We head into the international break sitting in fourth place.
  • It was our first clean sheet of the Bundesliga season. 
  • We have scored 10 goals in our first three games, the second-most of any team in the Bundesliga, while the four goals we have conceded are the third-fewest in the league.
