Hertha did not convince Berlin in the 33rd round of the Bundesliga and needed support from Bayern Munich after the defeat against 1. FSV Mainz 05 in the relegation battle.
Another opportunity for greater clarity was missed in the relegation battle: due to 1:2 (1:1) in round 33 of the Bundesliga against 1. FSV Mainz 05, Hertha BSC still has to play VfB Stuttgart on Sunday (May 8, 2022) At Bayern Munich you can finally breathe a sigh of relief. If the Swabians don’t win, Berlin can no longer slip into the relegation zone on the last day of the game.
Stefan Bell (81st minute) scored the winning goal for Mainz 05 on Saturday. Before the break, Davy Silk (45 + 5) converted a penalty according to video evidence to offset the first guest by Sylvain Widmer (25).
Hirthan’s reconciliation with the public
Before kick-off at the Berlin Olympic Stadium, there was initially a reconciliation between the team and the fans. The team ran together in front of the curve and clapped along with the spectators. After 1:4 in the city derby against Union Berlin, some fans put pressure on the players and demanded that their shirts be handed over.
With a positive audience behind them, the hosts started to focus and visually excel a bit. However, not much went towards the goal at first. Selke fired the first (fifth) warning shot, but that was it.
Marcel Lutka misses a shot and destroys
Mainz moved well against the ball and looked for a way forward with quick diagonal play. The advance also came from one of these situations: Widmer stepped in from the right and hit the ball in the way of Karim Onissio and hit the short corner with a shot from a narrow angle. However, Berlin goalkeeper Marcel Lutka did not cut a good figure because the ball slipped from under his body.
The blow to the neck was not good for the Berlin match. Mainz looked confident and scored again in the 35th minute through Anton Stach. However, Leandro Barreiro prevented the offside vision and referee Patrick Etrich ruled out the goal.
When it seemed like a break, Hertha’s video assistant came to the rescue. In the corner, Diederik Boyata was pressed from behind by Mainz defender Moses Nyakate. After a long video study, Etrich decided on a penalty and Selke scored to equalize.
I shocked Bill Herta’s kick
In the second half, too, many actions from both sides remained fragmented. Berlin rarely came out on top. Mainz kept getting better sights. A goal from Onisiwo (52′) was disallowed due to a handball by Lotka’s masterful response on the line to Widmer (75′) header. But in the end, Bale headed in after a corner kick.
Motivated by the home team’s fans, Hertha fought to equalize again, but substitute Luca Wollschläger (88) failed with more than one shot at the post. Another slash was not counted because the attacker pushed it (90 + 1).
Derby for Mens at the end
Hertha BSC must go to runners-up Borussia Dortmund in the final round (May 14, 2022, 3:30pm). Mainz, who was placed in the center of the field and saved, bid farewell in front of their fans at the same time as the Rhein-Main derby against Eintracht Frankfurt from the 2021/22 season.
