Sometimes, the fundamental Pitch changes within a few hours and days – or rather: within a game tags. On Sunday morning, not 24 hours after the 1:2 VfB Stuttgart, chose Herthas coach Pal Dardai still comparatively critical words and buttoned up in public an entire team who had to work in Swabia right: the midfield. On Monday, at the press conference before today's home game against FC Augsburg (20: 30 Olympic stadium and live on Sky), the sound then is quite different; much more quiet and level-headed. "If someone plays bad, I will not be angry," said Dardai, "this is what football is about and has happened to me too, when I've played yet." So everything is back in order? All the upsets are resolved and forgotten, which had brought the pros on Saturday?
So bad in the second half and the result in Stuttgart were Michael Preetz was able to win actually a positive aspect. "Normally you have to wait a whole week, so a game almost back," said the Manager, "so it is good that we now have the opportunity to do that." However, Preetz has warned of the augsburgers, the point of the fight stuck with Herthas last opponent from Stuttgart in the descent. "In my opinion, they play a really good round, and are significantly under value. You have brought too little points for what you have offered,“ said Preetz. Also Dardai said it was a hard-working, disciplined and tactically variable opponents. "I appreciate you", said the Hertha Coach.
Herthas injury list is a long one
On the Berlin side, however, is at the Moment a thing of the variability: the injury list is still as long as before the away game in Stuttgart, what should have been within three days, even major change? "A few things have even gotten around to it yet," says Dardai, "if I'm honest, I don't have a healthy six." This fits into the picture of this first half of the season, which had some high points and two low points: the games in Dusseldorf and Stuttgart. "We have two games sprinkled in, in which we are negligent points left and in a different setting, much more would have been possible," said Preetz. On the other hand, it is difficult for the Thesis of a coach Dardai to argue that his Team was now hunted really by luck in the second half of the calendar year 2018. "We've had very bad luck with injuries," said the Hungarian. The figures confirms this impression: exactly two Times Dardai has this season consecutively with the same starting lineup has. "Otherwise, I had to Tinker a lot," he said, "that's why I'm glad that we have collected still, 23 points, a praise to the team." Also Manager Preetz called the first half of the season very neatly. "We came with our approach, to act on the offensive," said the Manager.
In Berlin, they hope that the has also reached out to the General football people. Dardai appealed before the Augsburg game literally to the Fans, you like but please come numerous to the stadium, and the Blue-and-White to the front of the roar. "To me, is already clear: it is Tuesday, and late in the evening, but still, I hope, a few more people to come," said Dardai. Herthas coach knows from long experience: In the cold months, if not necessarily the most well-known opponent of stop by, may be the Olympic stadium is sometimes scarier than any good horror film. At the Moment Hertha is expecting on Tuesday evening with about 30 000 visitors.More about

At the end to cope with Dardai was still combative and challenging: "The players now need to bite once again, the coach wants four points from the last two Games." Even if it doesn't work, however, no one with Hertha seriously with his work, or increased competition at his Position. For the upcoming winter break – despite all the injuries – there were no Transfers planned, - said Preetz. "We expect that in January all are fit."
