Union Berlin’s performance in the Bundesliga is one of the biggest surprises of the 2022/2023 season in all the top European leagues. The team led by Urs Fischer, from the very beginning of the season, is doing great and takes second place in the table, just a point behind Bayern Munich and one point ahead of RB Leipzig.
Confidence and loud transfer
A very good attitude in the league games made both players and employees of Union feel much more confident. Thanks to this, also on social media, the German band became a bit sharper, using situations for minor trash-talk. The fans of RB Leipzig found out about it, who had to bury their heads in the sand again on Tuesday evening.
Today we were supposed to hear about one of the most famous transfers in the history of Union. Former Real Madrid and Sevilla player and multiple Spain international Isco were to join the Berlin club. Unfortunately, despite the player passing medical tests, negotiations were broken off at the last moment, which stunned fans around the world.
Catch on social media
On Tuesday evening, Union fans and players were waiting for another important match. This time we are talking about the meeting with VfL Wolfsburg as part of the 1/8 final of the German Cup. Traditionally, the Berlin club presented a graphic with the starting line-up for the match on social media. Then the official RB Leipzig profile entered the game, which decided to ask where Isco was.
There could be only one answer from the Union’s profile administrator – “where is the tradition?”. The entry of the Berlin club was quickly noticed by fans who passed it on, making fun of the youngest club in the Bundesliga, which, due to the lack of football traditions, is still treated with neglect both in Germany and around the world. This is also shown by the statistics on likes. RB Leipzig’s entry received a heart just over 1,200 times. Union – over 16,000 times.
Let us remind you that the RB Leipzig team, belonging to the Red Bull family, and therefore also having a very large financial background, was founded in May 2009, replacing SSV Markranstädt. It took the young team just 7 years to get promoted to the Bundesliga. Footballers from the red bull crest played in the top flight for the first time on August 28, 2016, drawing 2:2 with Hoffenheim.
