During the first half, Union had to overcome a heavily motivated, compact SV Tasmania Berlin defence. It was Marcel Hartel’s deflected attempt in the 14th minute that brought the first chance of the game, but Tasmania goalkeeper Robert Schelenz kept the sheets clean. On the other end of the field, former Union player Daniel Ujazdowski almost marked the lead for host Tasmania with a powerful shot from distance. Despite the opponent’s solid backline, Union created more and more chances: After a Christopher Trimmel corner-kick, defender Christoph Schösswendter set up Grischa Prömel who pushed the ball over the line for the 1:0-lead (24.). Tasmania continued to fight back and attacked the Köpenick team early on. Ujazdowski put a header only centimetres wide, before Tasmania centre back Julian Loder tested goalie Daniel Mesenhöler with a surprise-shot from the halfway line (36.). Minutes later, Mesenhöler prevented another powerful try attempt from going in. Marcel Hartel answered with a shot from the penalty box that went over the crossbar.

After the break, Berkan Taz replaced Simon Hedlund in the Union offense, but it was defensive midfielder Prömel again, who doubled the teams lead with a close-range tap-in (47.). Young talent Jannes Werner contributed his first goal of the game after a great set-up from Marcel Hartel (55.). Unions coach André Hofschneider brought five new players onto the pitch, while halftime sub Taz converted a direct free kick from the left (62.). Host Tasmania’s persistence dropped as the game went on, and chances for the home team became very rare. Akaki Gogia provided the fifth goal of the match with a shot from a sharp angle (71.), Philipp Hosiner made it half-a-dozen after a tremendous combination play between Lennard Maloney and Marc Torrejón (78.).

The 1. FC Union Berlin thanks SV Tasmania Berlin for the great evening and wishes the team from Berlin-Neukölln all the best for the remaining games of their season.

SV Tasmania Berlin: A club with a turbulent past

Tasmania’s roots date back to 1900, when the club was founded under the name Rixdorfer TuFC 1900 Tasmania. Numerous name-changes later, the club made an appearance in the Bundesliga during the 1965/66 season – but was relegated at the end of the season with only two wins and four ties out of 34 matches. It was the beginning of a downward spiral, financial and athletic problems resulted in the bankruptcy in 1973. Only a few months later, the club was re-established under a different name, before competing under their current SV Tasmania Berlin in 2011. Today, Tasmania plays in the Berlin-Liga, one of Germany’s sixth leagues.

Union and Tasmania crossed paths in four games so far: one Berlin-Cup game (1993) and three friendlies (1996, 1997, 2006). The team from Berlin-Köpenick won the first two matches 4-1 and 3-1, respectively, before playing the Neukölln-based club to a 2-2 and 1-1 tie.
