In a quick rematch of a matchday 25 encounter at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei, Union Berlin will be hoping to replicate their recent success against Frankfurt in a trip to Deutsche Bank Park. Die Eisernen face a struggling Eintracht side that enter the DFB quarterfinal fixture on a seven-game-winless run.
Union trainer Urs Fischer provided an update on his first-choice keeper Frederik Rønnow at his Monday presser. The Danish net-minder was a late scratch over the weekend duet muscular problems. Back-up Lennart Grill – recently signed permanently from Bayer Leverkusen – filled in between the sticks and was able to keep a clean sheet against Stuttgart.
Grill has kept three clean sheets in seven deployments across all competitions this season, but did allow in a combined total of 11 goals against Leverkusen, Augsburg, and Freiburg during a three-match-span whilst filling in for Rønnow between matchdays 13 and 15 this past November.
“The use of ‘Fredi’ remains questionable,” Fischer said at his Monday presser, “He will make the trip. It will be a game-time decision whether he starts or not.”
