Berlin – The relief was to see Hertha BSC's professionals dancing after the Bundesliga's first victorious season victory before their admiration curve in the Olympic Stadium.
Due to the hard work of 2: 1 (1: 0) against SC Paderborn, Saturday's Berlin was a small first step against the sporting crisis and promoted the promoted to the lowest rank. While the captains of coach Ante Covic have even left 18th place, the Ostwestfalen coach Steffen Baumgart are the only team still without a Bundesliga win.
"It's a very important moment for us to win for the first time because the season is starting for us now," said Marks Grujic of Berlin. Liverpool's loan is testament to the strong pressure felt by all members of the team after Hertha's worst start to the season in 29 years. Berlin brought only one point during the first four meetings. But even the success against Paderborn was not really convincing. "You tremble until the 90th minute, but I'm glad the boys are waking up with three points tomorrow," Covic said.
Javairo Dilrosun (10th minute) and Marius Wolf (52) scored for hosts, sometimes very difficult and playful, barely able to shine. Ben Zolinski (54) succeeded for the brave Paderborn that the door to connect. "The guys are keeping their heads high, we have had a good game," said Baumgart, although his team still has only one point to his account: "We could have better used the game. one or the other situation. "
Hertha had a perfect start in front of 43,588 spectators. Dilrosun, 21, took advantage of the defensive score not yet ordered to end up after a strong individual performance in mind. The Dutchman ran from the sideline on the eve of the portal – and was rewarded with his debut as a start-up with the first goal of the season.
Covic had put Dilrosun in the starting lineup for Dodi Lukebakio in the first week of the match in Mainz last week and had a change on the defensive. Lukas Klünter has come on for Jordan Torunarigha. Paderborn traded after the bitter 1: 5 match last Sunday at FC Schalke 04 only in one position. For Streli Mamba, coach Baumgart offered in attack the strong Ben Zolinski.
Zolinski also gave Paderborn the best chance in the 27th minute. The guests had an advantage in the first period and came several times before the goal of Hertha's goalkeeper, Rune Jarstein. But Sebastian Vasiliadis with a header (13) and Sven Michel (41) failed with his foot.
While the Paderborn were playing well and Berlin had repeatedly been in trouble before, Hertha was not offending enough. Although Covic has previously demanded to focus more on the defensive. Overall, the performance in the first 45 minutes was too uninspiring to eventually make a preliminary decision. Ondrej Duda was alone in front of goal one minute before the break, but could not take advantage of this opportunity.
He became turbulent at the beginning of the second half. Only Dilrosun prepared Wolf's goal, it's only a minute later that allowed Zolinski of Paderborn to score. The equalizer almost did the same, but Cauly Oliveira Souza (55 ') nearly failed. Twice, Berliners have already applauded the so-called 3: 1: But substitute results Vladimir Darida (68) and Davie Selke (74) have not been recognized due to offside positions.
