1. FC Union Berlin kept up pace with 1. FC Köln at the top of Bundesliga 2 thanks to a 1-0 win over FC Erzgebirge Aue on Sunday.

Torsten Mattuschka scored the only goal of the game as the club from the capital kept up their push for promotion, despite a bold effort to block them out by Aue. The visitors set out their stall for a defensive masterclass, and they survived for an hour before Mattuschka sent in a direct free-kick from nearly 30 yards to make the breakthrough. The game then opened up with Union creating chances to increase their lead, but in the end, they were happy enough to settle for the solitary strike, still worth all three points.
