Union Berlin already played their first offical game for the season and they did impressivly good. They visited Germania Halberstadt and achieved an exciting 6-0 win away from home. Keven Schlotterbeck opened the score for Union in the first half, while after the halftime break the Bundesliga newcomers scored five more goals. Sebastian Andersson, Christopher Lenz, Joshua Mees, Robert Andrich and Anthony Ujah all scored for the visitors.
RB Leipzig are starting the season with a new manager. This is Julian Nagelsmann, who left Hoffenheim and signed with them. Nagelsmann already debuted with a win for RB Leipzig. His team visited Osnabruck in a match from the first round of the DFB Pokal and achieved a difficult 3-2 win.
The Austrian midfielder Marcel Sabitzer scored a brace for the team from Leipzig, while Lukas Klostermann also put the ball in the net.
