Union Berlin will play their first game under new head coach Nenad Bjelica on Wednesday when they take on Braga away in the Champions League.


Bjelica has replaced long-serving coach Urs Fischer, who left the club earlier this month after a 4-0 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen extended the capital club's winless streak to 14 games.

In a game they largely dominated, Union couldn't end their winless run against Augsburg under caretaker coach Marco Grote, but managed to salvage a draw thanks to Kevin Volland's spirited late equaliser.

Bottom of Group C, Union now travel to Braga, who will need a win to keep their hopes of progressing to the knockout stages alive.

The Portuguese hosts are coming off a convincing 4-1 win over Portimonense and sit fourth in the league table.

Al Musrati is a doubt for Braga, while Union are sweating over the fitness of Leonardo Bonucci, Danilho Doekhi and Sheraldo Becker, who all missed out at the weekend.
