1. FC Union Berlin will take on Dynamo Dresden at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei on Saturday at 14:05 local time. The match will be shown live on RBB and MDR.
Urs Fischer's side picked up their first win of pre-season on Wednesday at 3.Liga outfit Viktoria Berlin. The level will be turned up again when Dynamo Dresden, promoted to the 2.Bundesliga, will head for Köpenick.
With a four-point cushion, Alexander Schmidt's side secured a return back to the second-tier of German football after a one year absence. The 52-year-old was previously the coach of Türkgücü München but took over after 12 matches and guided the club to promotion. Saturday's game could see some familiar faces back in Köpenick. Striker Philipp Hosiner scored eight goals in 47 games for Union and will lead the line for Dresden.
