Analysis | Draw against Oxburg
Hertha loses her nerve before the late equalizer
During a turbulent pause, Hertha PSC delivers the victory that is believed to be safe. Discussions about the referee should not cover up the team’s mistakes. 90 minutes ago, Hertha showed good playful attitudes. By Dill Oberman
When the creation of a pack becomes the main scene of the Bundesliga game, it is very rare for the game level of the game. Herta BSC’s home game against FC Oxburg is an entertaining encounter between the two teams aiming for a total of 30 shots as they try to set off attacking accents throughout the season.
Despite the freezing rain and cold weather in Berlin in November, the approximately 20,000 Herta team that went to the Olympic Stadium can count on their team winning long enough. Until the 97th minute: Substitute Michael Grigorich then equalized for his Oxburg team – although the team around referee Frank Villanburg set the first stop time at four minutes. Co-coach Zecke Neuendorf was so upset he got a red card. His boss Paul Darday responded very quietly. When a Sky reporter tried to critique Villanburg shortly after the final whistle, he said: “No, I’m not talking there.”
Eventually, Hertha loses her nerve
His players should take this as a precedent in the future because they are solely responsible for the extended pause. When Hertha fought for a corner in the 94th minute, just seconds before the end of extra time, everything seemed to be as Hertha had been. As usual in situations like this, the Berliners briefly took the corner. The team stumbled deep into their line. Strong striker Davy Selke took the ball more seconds against Oxburg. He fell to the ground in a confrontation for the ball. Referee Villanburg decided a free kick for Oxburg. This is certainly debatable, but at the same time it is one of the most popular 50-50 results in a fight rating of at least a dozen per game.
Selke in particular first spun on the floor in the theater, then suddenly jumped like he had been stabbed by a tarantula and finally fought with the oxburgs and screamed. However, it is questionable what prompted his teammates to run in the crowd halfway through the opponent and take part in pushing the corner flag. After all, they stayed in their own half in the corner to maintain order. The clashes around Villanburg lasted several minutes and the referee decided to play again full time. So it happened, it happened: the stumbling Hertners got the balance after a long ball that was badly destroyed with the final act of the game. How did that happen, Mr. Darday? “What we discussed for a long time went wrong in the first place,” Herta coach said. After that, his team was out of opinion and followed. “We have to defend until the last whistle.”
Hertha’s appearance gave courage in a playful way
This result was particularly bitter for the coach. After he was criticized for his unidentified match schedule after the bankruptcy in the City Derby, Dortoy thought a lot about the game against Oxburg. Santiago became the 3-way chain who had the ball in their possession after Marvin Plattenhart, Jordan Toronarica, Nicholas Stark and Peter Beckeric to pile up the Ascenders sixes. As a half-left center defender, Beckerick, who was on the right back, pushed far into the opposite half. Herta was able to bring more width into the game – because Stark particularly positioned himself on the outside and started good attacks again and again with long passes to the side. “In the first half we had two hundred percent chances on our own,” Dardai said.
He mentions Ishaq Belfodil. The new striker has repeatedly created points for playing for his teammates in midfield and has appeared twice in the first round in front of Ruff Kikwicz of Oxburg, each of which he has thwarted. Marco Richter’s Hertha leadership was not the result of a great offensive game. But he stole the ball from Camney from Oxburg and turned it 1-0 could also be seen as a reaction to the defeat against Union, after which Dortoi complained to his team about the lack of vibrancy and composure. “The first half was equal and we were the best team in the second half,” Darday commented after the game against Oxburg. This is also due to the fact that Herta – unlike the last home game against Leverkusen – continued to play creatively instead of playing against the wall. After several chances, the Berliners scored two offside goals, but unfortunately not all attempts were enough to recover 2-0. That’s why Darday fought: “You have to score the second goal and then we don’t have to argue for 96 minutes.”
Marco Richter self-criticized
It may be in the nature of things that the discussions after the game mainly revolve around a long pause. It is good that Hertha players are watching the scenes closely before leveling. Because, within minutes of the pack being formed, they seemed to have completely forgotten the score. Shortly before the goal, the five confused Hortons had already blocked the danger. Your break free would have given other players time to position themselves on the defensive. Instead, several herdsmen ran forward as if the old woman had missed a target. Goalkeeper Marco Richter provided an insight into the emotional world of the Berliners: “We are served. It should not happen to us.”
