This Saturday, for Bundesliga’s matchday 22, Bayer Leverkusen visited the capital and beat Union Berlin by 3-2, at the La Bombonera look-alike, Alten Forsterei Stadium. The match had two comebacks and 3 goals in the last 10 minutes. Christian Gentner and Marios Bulter scored for the home side. Kai Havertz, Moussa Diaby, and Karim Bellarabi scored for the visitors.

Union Berlin started the match looking for the goal, as they always do when they play in front of their fans. Their first good chance was at the 2nd minute, but the shot went wide. However, at the 7th minute, they didn’t waste their chance and broke the deadlock. Gentner got the ball into the edge of the box and sent a strong shot to score his first goal of the season.

Leverkusen started to get more the ball, but honestly, they were not creating dangerous chances. But they knew how to take advantage of the only one they had in the first half, at the 22nd minute. Havertz controlled the ball inside the 6-yard box and sent it over goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz, equalizing the match.

After the half-time, both teams kept on attacking and searching for the three points. Most parts of the second half weren’t that exciting, but the last 10 minutes were surely busy. At the 83rd, Diaby put the ball into the back of the net and put Leverkusen ahead on the scoring.

4 minutes later, Bulter made a beautiful play and put the ball past goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky to leave things equal once again. However, the visitors fought until the end and got their second comeback at the injury time. At 90+4, Bellarabi, with a difficult angle, managed to put the ball into the bottom of the goal and give the victory to Bayer.

Although Leverkusen remains in fifth place, with 40 points, the team remains alive in the fight for the Bundesliga title, being just 6 points behind the first place. Union Berlin dropped to 12th place, with 26 points. Not that close to the relegation zone, but not as far in points as they wished.

Playing the Europa League, Leverkusen will welcome Porto next Thursday for the first leg match of the round of 32. Union, on the other hand, will play only next Monday, when they visit Eintracht Frankfurt.
