The Bavarians sit third with 11 points,

equal to Union,

having also drawn 1-1 with Borussia Moenchengladbach the previous week and travelling to Inter for their Champions League group opener the following week.

With a 3-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen,

Freiburg climbed to the top spot with 12 points. As a result of their 1-0 victory over Hoffenheim on Friday,

Borussia Dortmund are also on 12.

The hosts,

who are off to their best Bundesliga start ever and are seeking their first victory against Bayern,

didn’t let the league’s top scorer Sheraldo Becker’s perfect volley at the far post frighten them.

Becker now has five goals after scoring in his last three straight games.

However,

Joshua Kimmich’s low shot into the far corner three minutes later gave them a brief lead.

When Jamal Musiala threaded his way into the area and flicked a spectacular ball to send Leroy Sane through,

the Bavarians came agonisingly close to scoring a second goal in the 37th minute. However,

goalie Riis Ronnow stopped Sane’s attempt.

The second-best backline in the league,

behind Bayern, Union, rarely dropped a beat and remained strong when the visitors tried to get past it in the second half.

In the 75th minute, after a strong run,

the hosts forced a great one-handed stop from Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who palmed Jamie Leweling’s attempt beyond.

Sheraldo Becker scored Union Berlin’s first goal at home in the 12th minute after Christopher Trimmel sent the ball to him.

Three minutes later,

Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich restored parity,

and the score remained the same going into the intermission.

In the second half, Bayern Munich put more pressure on Union Berlin,

but the game ended in a tie because the visitors were unable to score a late winner.

Union Berlin easily defeated Schalke 1-6 in their most recent Bundesliga match. Union Berlin is currently ranked second in the Bundesliga with 10 points after four games.

Bayern Munich’s last Bundesliga match against Borussia Mönchengladbach resulted in just a point. Leroy Sane, a German attacker,

equalised late to give Bayern Munich an important point.

Here is everything you need to know about Berlin and Bayern Munich:

When will Union Berlin and Bayern Munich’s encounter in the 2022–23 Bundesliga take place?

On September 3, Saturday, Union Berlin and Bayern Munich will play in the Bundesliga 2022–23.

Where will Union Berlin vs. Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga 2022–23 match be held?

The Stadion An der Alten Forsterei in Berlin will host the Bundesliga match between Union Berlin and Bayern Munich in 2022–23.

Bayern Munich struggled to go back to winning in the Bundesliga as Union Berlin resolutely held them to a 1-1 draw on Saturday at Alte Forsterei.

The champions were hoping to get back on track away from home after slipping up against Borussia Monchengladbach for the first time this top-flight season.

However, in a game that failed to live up to its exciting beginning,

Julian Nagelsmann’s team was forced to settle for a point, which means that both they and Urs Fischer’s opponents remain tied for second place with Borussia Dortmund.

Any expectation of a peaceful afternoon in the capital was quickly dispelled by a thrilling first quarter-hour that saw the hosts score first and the guests respond only three minutes later.

Following a superb volley by Sheraldo Becker from a looping free kick for Union,

Bayern quickly answered with a rifled effort from Joshua Kimmich.

In the ensuing seconds of the first half, Leroy Sane twice came within inches of scoring, once forcing a save and once missing the target.

That appeared to lay the groundwork for a thrilling contest after the interval, but the home team decided to focus even more on their defensive strategy,

maintaining just over a fifth of the ball possession the entire time while lying deep to impede their opponents.

Sane and Sadio Mane came close to scoring the game’s winning goal as Bayern continued to launch wave after wave of attacking movement,

but they were ultimately kept at bay for a cagey sharing of the points.

Next, what?

On September 6, Bayern Munich will freshen up for their Champions League debut against Inter at San Siro, while Union Berlin takes on Union Saint-Gilloise of Belgium two days later in the Europa League.
