After last five 1:2 defeats against Union Berlin, Marco Rose wants to see a "grown-up performance" against the Köpenicker. "That means in the optimum case. If Union gives us tasks that we accept them, we have to be in the duels, prevent crosses, be in the box on the man and do the right thing at the right moment, that would be adult for me with clarity and cleverness," said the head coach of RB Leipzig before the game this Sunday (17.30 clock/DAZN) at Union Berlin.
"We know the numbers of recent games and of course would like to get three points at the Alte Försterei again. We dare to do that, but know how home strong they are," said Rose, who has the highest respect for the development in the Wuhlheide. "Good coach, clear idea, very, very good squad planning, which is also strongly focused on having a high level of turnover. Overall, a great development," praised Rose.
After the new signings of the Unioner, he sees the capital club on a new level. "In addition, also with Berlin is not paid with Schrippen, Stullen, Broilern or Buletten. There, too, a steady development is taking place." Union had "meanwhile arrived, also in the Champions League. That was a bit impressive for me when Union Berlin was drawn against Real Madrid. I thought that was cool, and I'm happy for Köpenick, for the club, and for the region as a whole. You can only take your hat off."
