Hertha BSC has missed the hoped for liberation in the Bundesliga descent fight. The capital club had to satisfy himself at the kick-off of the 21st matchday against the promoted VfL Bochum with a disappointing 1: 1 (1: 0) and is continued after five competitive games in a row without victory in the crisis.

An attacker ishak Belfodil (23.) had taken the only half-hour strong Berliner by head in the lead. The long time harmless Bochumers showed another face in the second half and came to compensate by “Joker” Sebastian Polter (48.).

Hertha goalkeeper Hallows Hertha-Torkehüter Alexander Schwolow, who broke a harmless shot of Jürgen Locadia prior to poles feet, strongly. “You can not collect such a goal today,” Monated Marc Oliver Kempf, the Berlinger newcomer. “We had promised more. More than the goal, we did not allow us. Therefore, it’s sad that we only have one point,” said the central defender on Dazn .

The VFL claimed in the table the two-point lead over the Hertha.

From the four new arrivals committed in winter, Kempf at Hertha immediately was in the starting eleven. The central defender came from Stuttgart is to stabilize the most susceptible defense of the league – which could also be able to stretch the VFL via wide stretch.

Bochum coach Thomas rice replaced his “centerpiece”, as he called the Capna Anthony Losilla-ill, by Robert Tesche in the defensive midfield. But Losilla lacked the team especially in the weak first half.

“It’s important that we are brave, playing forward and imprinting the opponent,” Kulkut had challenged before the kick-off. Accordingly, the households who had two opportunities (4th and 5th) for the early lead began the households. Hertha seemed more alert, more aggressive and running, the 1-0 leadership through a placed Belfodil header to the edge of Stevan Jovetic was absolutely earned.
