Union in action on Sunday at home to Wolfsburg

1. FC Union Berlin return to home action after the success in Frankfurt at Sunday lunchtime when VfL Wolfsburg make the trip to the Stadion An der Alten Försterei. The kick-off time is at the earlier 13:30.

Review: Controlled performance in Frankfurt, Wolfsburg progress in Europe

Urs Fischer's side secured another impressive win in the Bundesliga to move into the Top 10. The opener from Sebastian Andersson on 48 minutes was followed up shortly afterwards by an own goal from Evan N'Dicka. Frankfurt pushed hard towards the end and Andre Silva made sure it was a tense finish at the Commerzbank Arena. Three important points didn't just take Union above Eintracht Frankfurt, but also extended the cushion above the relegation play-off spot to nine points. 

Meanwhile, VfL Wolfsburg secured their spot in the UEFA Europa League last 16 with a dominant victory over Swedish side Malmo. Oliver Glasner's team ran out 5-1 winners on aggregate, taking a 3-0 victory back to Germany on Thursday night. While the Wolves have a date with Shakhtar Donestk to look forward to, Glasner's side also have ambitions of securing a European place for next season. Wolfsburg defeated Mainz 4-0 last time out to move on to 34 points — two off Schalke in 6th and five ahead of Union Berlin.

Record: One previous meeting

Wolfsburg's 1-0 win in the reverse fixture is the only competitive meeting so far between the clubs. In 2016, Union Berlin ran out 3-1 winners at the Volkswagen Arena in a friendly match. Sunday's game will be Wolfsburg's first match at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.

Personnel: Almost a full squad available

Urs Fischer confirmed his group was almost back at full strength at the pre-match press conference on Thursday. Laurenz Dehl, Andy Gogia and Manuel Schmiedebach are the current absentees from the squad.

The stadium is sold out for the visit of Wolfsburg. There will be no sale on Sunday.

The secondary ticket market is open for supporters who would like to make their ticket available for sale or purchase a last-minute ticket.

The club recommends supporters to use all forms of public transport with limited parking spaces available in the vicinity of the stadium.
