"After the 0: 1 it was not easy for a moment. But after the 1: 1 through a standard we played an extremely strong first half and were far superior. We still have to score three or four more goals," said Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann.

Hertha's new winger Deyovaisio Zeefuik saw the start of the second half only four and a half minutes after being substituted on Yellow-red card (Service:). "I have to relax and watch it at home. It is difficult to say something about it at the moment," said Hertha's midfielder Vladimir Darida, commenting on the tough decision.
Hertha's keeper Schwolow added: "We fought a great fight. Of course, it's our own fault. But what the referee does with the yellow-red card really hurts."
The situation is gradually becoming precarious for Hertha. Bruno Labbadia's team suffered their fourth defeat in a row and is still in the table cellar. This means that there will be plenty of explosive at the general meeting on Sunday.

Leipzig with Kluivert and Sörloth
Leipzig's coach Julian Nagelsmann rotated four days after the successful start in the Champions League against Istanbul Basaksehir (2-0) and brought three new players in Benjamin Henrichs, Justin Kluivert and Alexander Sörloth .
The hosts did not press as high as usual at first, but they liked with direct play over the outside positions (Service:).
Hertha couldn't be seen at first, but the first counterattack against Vladimir Darida and Dodi Lukebakio was on. New signing Cordoba stayed cool in front of the goal and finished confidently. The compensation fell almost immediately. Hertha's Bundesliga debutant Omar Alderete defended clumsily against Upamecano, the RB defense chief slammed the ball into the mesh. "I think the team did a very good job and our first goal was great. Of course we want to be somewhere else in the table, but we have to remain positive," said Darida.
New players and the coronavirus: Hertha BSC's debts at a new high

Because of Corona, the financial situation is not easy for Hertha's managing director Ingo Schiller (left). The millions of Invester Lars Windhorst are very helpful.

As a result, a game that was tough on both sides developed with a number of fouls, with players repeatedly lying on the ground. Leipzig was missing a bit of the vote, only shortly before half-time the combination game went better again, especially Kluivert was able to show his strength in a one-on-one against Maximilian Mittelstädt on the right.
The Bundesliga highlightsWhirl around yellow-red for Berlin
At the second half, Hertha Zeefuik came on the right track for the injured Peter Pekarik, but the 22 year old Dutchman had to get out quickly after yellow-red, a tough, but definitely justifiable decision by referee Tobias Stieler (Hamburg).
Outnumbered Hertha withdrew and left the game to the home side. Often the ball circled around the Berlin penalty area like in handball, but Hertha held against it, showed a good attitude at least in the duels and fought for every ball.
Nagelsmann brought new strengths for the final phase with Yussuf Poulsen and Dani Olmo and later with Sabitzer with goal danger and increased the pressure again. It paid off. After a foul by Cordoba on Willi Orban there was a penalty in the 77th minute, which Sabitzer safely converted.
