Hertha BSC also won the second game since the restart, without an audience, of the German football league. As a result, the formation of coach Bruno Labbadia is moving away from the bottom places. On Friday, Hertha was too strong for fellow Union Union Berlin, 4-0. Last week, coach Alfred Schreuder’s Hoffenheim had beaten (3-0).
Hertha struck hard shortly after the break. Vedad Ibiševic headed in the 1-0 after a cross by Marvin Plattenhardt. Barely a minute later it was 2-0 by Dodi Lukebakio, now from a pass by Ibiševic. When cheering, the players kept to the agreements in connection with the corona crisis. Last week at Hoffenheim, they were ‘discredited’ by reacting a little too enthusiastically to the hits.
Matheus Cunha and Dedryck Boyata, once playing for FC Twente, made the other hits.
Javairô Dilrosun came on for Hertha in the 75th minute.
Football in the Bundesliga had resumed last weekend after an interruption due to the outbreak of the new corona virus.
