 The  team of coach Julian Nagelsmann won 3-0 (1-0) at Hertha BSC on Sunday and was able to narrow the gap to the record champions (49 points), who lost 2-1 at Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. Marcel Sabitzer (28th), Nordi Mukiele (71st) and Willi Orban (84th) scored for the Saxons.

“That was a very important three,” said Sabitzer, who described his goal from almost 30 meters as a “can opener”: “It’s a duel now, but we can’t just talk about it, we have to stay tuned, be focused, then we can it will be enough in the end. ”

 The  Leipzig team needed a bit of a blunder to get all three points against the Berliners who were by no means hopeless. Without the necessary effectiveness, Hertha BSC would be stuck in the table cellar for a long time. Now waiting for the table 15. VfL Wolfsburg as the next top team.

Leipzig had the first chance after just four minutes

Without the future Munich Dayot Upamecano in the defense center, RB entered the Olympic Stadium. Overall, coach Julian Nagelsmann reacted to the disappointment in the Champions League against Liverpool on Tuesday with four changes. In the storm, alongside Yussuf Poulsen, Hee-chan Hwang was allowed to play in the Bundesliga for the first time from the start. After four minutes, the South Korean escaped after a positional error from Hertha’s starting eleven debutant Marton Dardai, but failed at the brilliantly reacting goalkeeper Rune Jarstein.

Hertha coach Pal Dardai had said before the kick-off that his son would be entitled to “five to six mistakes” just like any newcomer. But the 19-year-old quickly got into the action. Sami Khedira was also there for Berlin for the first time from the start and, despite the apparent lack of liveliness, ensured the stability in the center that was hoped for. This time the power lasted for 67 minutes.

Sabitzer shocked Hertha

Hertha even took the initiative in the new 3-4-2-1 concept and had a good chance of taking the lead. Krzysztof Piatek (17th) just missed a cross, shortly afterwards the Pole was surprised (20th) that the ball fell in a good position at his feet. Lukas Klostermann (22nd) saved just enough from Dodi Lukebakio, who was ready to shoot, and a solo by the very dedicated ex-Leipzig Matheus Cunha (26th) was stopped by the RB defensive just in time.

 The  shock for Hertha came a little later. Lucas Tousart did not disturb Sabitzer energetically enough with the long-range shot. At an incredible angle, the ball fell into the goal behind the astonished Jarstein. Sabitzer – one of Leipzig’s unlucky passers-by in the 2-0 draw against Liverpool in the premier class – almost had a free kick (35th).

 The  game was now completely open. Leipzig also pressed on another goal. Hwang (57th) didn’t aim precisely enough. Shortly thereafter, Marcel Halstenberg tried in vain with a header. Substitute Mukiele did better after a mistake by Mattéo Guendouzi, who threw the ball into the near post. Now Hertha had no more energy to catch up and even conceded the third goal.
