In a significant Berlin derby match, Hertha Berlin and Union Berlin will square off in the nation’s capital on Saturday. The hosts are in the automatic relegation spots going into the game, while Union, who triumphed in midweek, moved back up to second place.
Despite suffering a 5-0 loss to Wolfsburg at home on Tuesday, Sandro Schwarz has recently earned public support from Hertha’s sporting director Fredi Bobic. Bobic told Sky, “For me, he is not even remotely up for discussion.”
At the Olympiastadion, Hertha was down 3-0 to the Wolves at the break. However, in the second half, Ridle Baku and Omar Marmoush added additional gloss to the visitors’ victory. Die Alte Dame are only two points away from safety after the loss, which drops them to second-to-last in the standings.
To be fair to Schwarz, who joined the team last summer, Hertha’s slump has lasted for a while, and they have frequently dabbled in relegation — most notably when defeating Hamburger SV in the relegation playoff last May — so it comes as little surprise that they are in this precarious situation right now.
