Managing director Oliver Ruhnert from Union Berlin warned against the top game on Sunday (5.30 p.m.) at record champions Bayern Munich.
“There are more pleasant constellations in football than this,” said Ruhnert on Sky: “Against a rested FC Bayern Munich who also wants to do something good after a defeat.”
The Munich team lost 2:3 at Borussia Mönchengladbach last week. Union, which was challenged in the Europa League during the week and reached the round of 16 against Ajax Amsterdam, and Bayern are level on points with 43 points each before the 22nd matchday. “But the starters of the game must have thought beforehand: Well, the first team will play against the fourteenth team, okay, we can do it that way,” said Ruhnert.
It’s “nice for football, it’s nice for everyone involved too. We would certainly have wished that the game had been played more evenly, it’s not the case now, we’ll play the game on Sunday,” said Ruhnert: “For us it’s very unusual, very new, to go to a top game in Munich and then we’ll see if that’s the case.”
