Until 17.22 on Saturday at the away game at Union Berlin it was rather a lost day. But then Karim nets for a 3:2 away win and the three for the Bayer. But one after the other.
In the travel description for Bayer fans to Köpenick it said: Take the S-Bahn to Baumschulenweg and then take the S47 to Spindlersfeld. From there you can walk directly to the guest block. No sooner said than done, only arrived at Baumschulenweg we had to take note that the S47 is cancelled and the next one will arrive 20 minutes later. Well, there was still time, we should be in Spindlersfeld at 14.20 o'clock. Arrived there no clue where to go and followed the other Bayer fans. Okay stadium within walking distance, yes, but that was a tight 25 minutes walk. And my ass, you arrive directly at the guest block. Once around half the stadium was announced.
At the entrance then 30 minutes endless waiting time. I read later that there was an emergency on the other side. Then that's okay, but you could have just communicated it loudly. After all, 3:20 p.m. in the block, so in time.
I honestly expected more from the Berlin fans with all the euphoria about Union. They cheered for their team, but apart from the battle cry of Iron Union there was no diversity in the songs of the locals.
1:1 at half-time, that suits the day, even though Kay Havertz equalized the deficit after a lucky goal by Gentner. The second half was then literally under fire. I don't want to have a discussion here for or against Pyro. But when I read in the newspapers that the game was about to be abandoned and the teams were in the booths at the interruption Hmmhh. Everybody in the stadium saw that the teams were not in the cabins but were on the respective benches.
To be honest, no one in the stadium had the feeling that they were being interrupted. But one thing is also clear, at some point the pyro and the firecrackers must be stopped. When Diaby made the 2:1 I could not believe it. And after Union had balanced the score I felt like I was back at halftime.
But then the Werkself had as many chances in the last 3+7 minutes as in the whole game before. And then came Karim and the threesome.
On the way back to our hotel at the Alex we saved the walk to Spindlersfeld. Just take the next tram and ask some Unioner if it stops at any S- or U-Bahn station. They helped us a lot, thank you, and so the way back was absolutely easy.
Now it's time for the Werkself not to let up. With Porto and Augsburg two important home games are coming up. The Champions League is still in sight, but we still have to make up for some deficits from the first half of the season. And if the will from the last two games is not lost, then we can do that.
