Hertha still have to do without Cordoba, Torunarigha and Ascacibar – Tousard and Boyata are still questionable. In the storm, coach Bruno Labbadia will rely on Piatek, who last impressed in Augsburg. “Every player has different strengths, but we don’t have to change our entire game by using Piatek, but we do use his strengths well. He made a good appearance in Augsburg and scored in the international matches,” the coach explained before the game .
Manager Michael Preetz also knows about the radiance of the encounter. “Due to the special kick-off time, football Germany will pay a lot of attention to this game. A big opponent, a top team in German football, comes to Berlin,” said Preetz.
With the exception of Zagadou and Schmelzer, BVB can include the entire squad in the planning for the game. Of course, many expect that Moukoko, who has just turned 16, will celebrate his long-awaited debut, but Lucien Favre didn’t want to anticipate anything. “It has not yet been decided whether he will come to Berlin with me. He has fantastic potential. It is fun to train with him,” said Favre about Moukoko.
Hertha only won the first and so far last league game of the current season, plus there was a draw. With only seven points they are currently in 12th place in the table, most recently they got four points from two games. In the last six duels against BVB you could only get two meager points.
The Dortmund team suffered a 2: 3 setback against Munich on the last day of the match, but they are still close to the leaders. Next Tuesday, however, the game against Bruges in the premier class will have to be divided up against Hertha.
