Taiwo Awoniyi, a Nigerian striker, will play for Union Berlin in a local derby against Hertha Berlin.
The 24-year-old has seven goals in eleven Bundesliga outings and is optimistic about his prospects of scoring.

After being left out of the Super Eagles’ most recent World Cup qualifiers, the €8 million-rated Awoniyi will be eager to show himself to national team officials once more.
