Awoniyi scores Union Berlin’s 100th Bundesliga goal in comeback victory over Mainz
Nigeria international Taiwo Awoniyi scored a quick second-half brace to help Union Berlin secure a come-from-behind 2–1 victory over his former club Mainz in the Bundesliga on Sunday.
Mainz went in front in the first half but Awoniyi restored parity in the 69th minute before giving his side the lead four minutes later.
Interestingly, Awoniyi’s 69th minute strike was Union Berlin’s 100th goal in German top-flight football.
The 24-year-old forward has now scored five times in seven Bundesliga games this season for Union Berlin, who are up to 7th place – four points behind leaders Bayern Munich – on the league log.
