After Friday’s 1-0 win over SK Dynamo Ceske Budejovice, 1. FC Union Berlin prepare for a second friendly against Udinese. The Italians are in Lienz currently for pre-season and tomorrow’s game kicks off at 15:15 local time.
The traditional Italian Serie A club finished the last season in twelfth place in the table. But the seasons before that were similar, too. Since the 2013/2014 season, the northern Italians have always finished in double digits in the final table. The most successful seasons on a national level were ten years ago, when the team qualified for European competition in 10/11 (fourth place), 11/12 (third place) and 12/13 (fifth place).
In terms of personnel, there were many changes this summer. There were 16 additions and loan returnees, compared to ten departures.
Tickets can be bought tomorrow for the game at 10€. The match is available live on AFTV. The pre-season matches are presented by Sonnenschutz.de.
