Nigerian international, Taiwo Awoniyi on Sunday scored in Union Berlin’s 2-1 victory at Cologne with Max Kruse grabbing the winner.

With the victory, Union Berlin stretch their club record unbeaten run to seven Bundesliga matches and climb to fifth place.

Awoniyi, who is on loan at Union Berlin from Liverpool, had put the in-form visitors, unbeaten on the road this season, ahead in the 27th minute before Ellyes Skhiri pulled Cologne level with a close-range effort.
