1. FC Union Berlin 1-0 VfL Bochum 1848

Goal: 1-0 Kessel (80’)

Goalscoring opportunities were rare in the opening half with both sides largely cancelling each other in midfield. Union, unbeaten in their previous eight matches, produced the game’s first chance of note, Damir Kreilach struggling to put the ball in the net from close range (14').

The hosts increased the pressure as the match wore on, Bobby Wood failing to add to his 17-goal season tally near the hour mark with a promising header. The capital club eventually saw their superiority pay off ten minutes from time, however, Benjamin Kessel nodding home Felix Kroos’ cross to give Union the points.
