Player to Watch: Benedict Hollerbach (Union Berlin)

The 22-year-old winger Benedict Hollerbach will be one of a number of Union Berlin players hoping for a new lease on life under new Iron Ones boss Nenad Bjelica and the exciting youngster showcased his latent talents at the weekend in Union’s superb 3-1 win over Gladbach.

Hollerbach was full of running against Die Fohlen, and his man-of-the-match performance included three shots and his first Bundesliga goal of the campaign.

Hollerbach was schooled at the famed Bayern Munich academy earlier in his career and equipped with that classy pedigree, the flanksman will be eager to keep his place in the Union Berlin XI under Bjelica.

Player to Watch – Rodrygo (Real Madrid)

Brazilian Rodrygo has been an important source of goals for Real Madrid of late, and the 22-year-old has notched four times in his last four runouts for Los Blancos. Rodrygo was among the goals in Real’s last Champions League fixture against Napoli and he could make his mark again on matchday six on Tuesday evening.
