1.FC Union Berlin kept the pressure on struggling TSV 1860 Munich with a 3-0 win at their Stadion An der Alten Försterei. The capital club took the lead in the fifth minute thanks to Felix Kroos, who opened his Union account after a fine piece of individual skill on the edge of the box.

1.FC Union Berlin 3-0 TSV 1860 Munich

1860 could have got back on level terms when Stefan Mugosa sprung the home side’s offside trap before catching Jakob Jensen off his line early in the second half, but his attempted lob sailed wide. The hosts were always in the ascendancy, though. Damir Kreilach was denied his seventh goal of the campaign after a smart stop from Stefan Ortega Moreno and moments later Sascha Lewandowski’s men doubled their lead with Bobby Wood racing onto a long ball before slotting home for 2-0.

Union added gloss to the scoreline late on, with Kreilach instinctively sticking out a leg to steer the ball home after Sören Brandy had missed a cross into the box as it ended 3-0. Union are now ten points clear of the drop zone. 1860 remain 18th, with only MSV Duisburg below them.
