Wout Weghorst has to worry about his place in the starting XI on Saturday. The Dutchman has not yet been able to build on the high-scoring last year this season. Head coach Mark van Bommel stated at the press conference on Thursday: "Of course there have to be more goals at Wout."

In this context, it is fitting that Lukas Nmecha shot himself to the fore during the international break. He scored three goals in the friendly against Hamburger SV. Van Bommel is apparently thinking of a swap in this regard: "Wout must and would accept it if he goes to the bank."

That this happens seems to be possible against Union Berlin. Van Bommel found that Weghorst is currently in a "phase" that is not positive for the player. But there are such phases from time to time and that is not a bad thing. Nevertheless, Weghorst wobbles in front of the Union game.
