As the master players of Hertha BSC were already in the cabin, struck the hour of Henrik Kuchno. The fitness coach of the German soccer-Bundesliga-operated in his preferred role as a tormentor. The reservists, which is not or only minutes had come at the weekend, had to the complete length of the square is in approximately the high-speed along a sprint – and then, after a Minute Pause, and panting heavily, in the reverse direction and back again. Luke Klünter, a footballer in the body of an athlete, crossed reliable than the first outer goal line. Just as reliable Salomon Kalou came with a few meters of distance to the target.
The Ivorians, the play in all three back-round on the bench had to take place, also with 33 yet sufficiently ambitious in order to feel his current Situation at Hertha as unsatisfactory. On Monday morning in Training, he is likely to have cursed a little more, that he has no regular place in the team of coach Pal Dardai. Otherwise, the intense runs would be left to him under Kuchnos Director saves.
For the last four Games, Hertha has not likely to stand against the Bayern
this Wednesday, lost in the second round of the DFB Cup against Bayern Munich (20.45 clock, live on ARD and Sky), Salomon Kalou for the first Time in almost exactly two months back in the starting lineup. After the disappointing 0:1 home defeat against VfL Wolfsburg on the weekend, it will give Hertha some changes, both in personnel and in System. In all probability, Dardai will return to the 4-2-3-1, which he calls "our Basic System". In the 4-2-3-1 there would also be a suitable place for Salomon Kalou. The Ivorians occupied the left Position in the attacking three in number, is possible only because he does not have to plow in this System, unlike in the 3-5-2 the side line along the sprint and the entire outside of the track.
in four Games (one win, three draws) and have lost the Berlin against Bayern. No other German club can look back on such a series against the giants. Hertha must not have something that is located in Munich. And that is exactly what will need to retrieve Dardais team this Wednesday in the Olympic stadium when the annual dream of the participation in the Cup final should not be terminated in the own city again prematurely. "We will drag our stuff through," says Dardai. "But we have to be against the Ball better than last time."
In all three of the return round of play of the Hungarian offered his team in the 3-5-2, and each Time in the same occupation. However, Dardai saw in the recent two matches against Schalke and Wolfsburg to urged a system of correction in the current operation. Because the control center was missing, before he moved in Fabian Lustenberger made of the three-chain in defensive midfield, so a 4-4-2 Formation with a diamond. "Each System has its Strengths and weaknesses," says Dardai before the Cup game. "But I'm thinking to change the System."
One should not allow the creative players in the Bayern no room, explains Herthas coach of the approach for the second round; this applies especially to the offensive outer positions, where the Munich-based, no matter in what occupation, and also without the injured Arjen Robben, are particularly dangerous. Exactly that was the least of Herthas weakness in the 3-5-2 System. Valentino Lazaro, who played on the right-hand half position in front of the three-chain, had Weghorst against the two Wolfsburg players Jerome Roussillon and Elvis Rexhbecaj also great problems, because he had to stand up to you alone a lot – so also in front of the only gate of the VfL by Wout, the Roussillon, about Lazaros defensive side initiated. In the 3-5-2, so coach Dardai, be it "doubles is very difficult to secure". Just against Bayern but this will be doubly important.
It is well possible that Dardai occupied both defensive outside positions: left, Marvin Plattenhardt is likely to be by Maximilian Mittelstädt replaced, the stand is also in Herthas 2:0-victory in the League in the starting lineup. Lazaro moves on the other side, possibly a number to the front. Peter Pekarik goes down with a sprain, this could be a Chance for Luke Klünter: The defender of rights would be for the first Time ever since his summer in the starting line-up. Soon enough he is.More about
