The se numbers are amazing! Hertha has been without a win for seven games – now, of all things, it is against feared opponents Leipzig on Sunday (3.30 p.m., Olympic Stadium, here in the BZ live ticker). Coach Pal Dardai (44): “I don’t care what happened. If we don’t get a standard goal or a flank goal, then we also have a chance at home against a top opponent like Leipzig. ”
► Hertha has lost all four Bundesliga home games against RB so far, three times there was a slap under coach Dardai (0: 3, 2: 6, 1: 4), once under former coach Ante Covic (45/2: 4).
The total goal horror.
The Hertha coach: “Those were juicy defeats, we did a lot wrong. Everything has to be right against Leipzig in order to cause a surprise. ”
► Dardai has not yet won a coaching duel against current Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann (33). When Nagelsmann was still under contract in Hoffenheim, Dardai suffered four defeats with Hertha, but managed at least three draws. Dardai: “At some point such series will end.” Hopefully on Sunday.
► Dardai has been waiting for his first three since he took office. Bankruptcy in Frankfurt (1: 3), bankruptcy against Munich (0: 1), draw in Stuttgart (1: 1). With 18 points in 15th place, we finally have to win.
That’s why midfielder Santiago Ascacibar (23) says: “We will have to prove as a team that we are able to defy such an opponent and this time we want to score points against a club from the top region of the table!”
The n the Leipzig horror would finally come to an end!
