Union chase points in Halle

1. FC Union Berlin will be looking to add some points to the board this weekend when the Köpenick club head for Hallescher FC in the U19 Bundesliga Nord/Nordost.

Saturday's game is a 13:00 kick-off.

After last season's impressive fourth-placed finish, Union have had to deal with new challenges. The opening day loss to Hannover was followed up by a DFB Pokal defeat to Fortna Düsseldorf (0:3) at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei. Andre Vilk's team used the international break last week to gain much-needed confidence, picking up a 3-1 win over 1. FC Köln. "We certainly didn't get off to a perfect start in the new season, but the mood in the team is now positive and confident. The win in Cologne strengthens the self-confidence ahead of the game," said the Union U19 coach.

Meanwhile, Halle have three points from two matches. The club from Sachsen-Anhalt thrashed Viktoria Berlin in their first league outing this season (4-0) but went down to rivals Dynamo Dresden (0-2).
