Hertha BSC: That’s what the test match against Berliner AK is all about



It’s just a test kick – and still a very important game!

occurs in the Poststadion in Moabit Bundesliga club Hertha on Saturday at 6 p.m. against Berliner AK.

The important background of the benefit game: The severe earthquakes in Syria and Turkey on February 6th, which killed more than 50,000 people and left millions homeless.

A large part of the income from the game will flow into the construction of a container village in the region of Türkoglu/Kahramanmaras. The technical relief organization and the aid organization Isar also benefit from the proceeds.

Hertha President Kay Bernstein (42): “We have a responsibility to help. People still don’t have a roof over their heads.” And AK President Ebubekir Han says: “The earthquake is very close to us because we have many Turkish players whose families are affected.”

And although it is against a fourth division team, the game is also of great sporting value for Hertha. After the disastrous performance in Hoffenheim (1: 3), everything in the team of coach Sandro Schwarz (44) is under scrutiny.


Even Kimmich totally amazed… That’s why Sané is really missing from the DFB!

Schwarz: “For us, it’s a competitive game that we want to play seriously and consistently.”

► Florian Niederlechner (32) wants to loosen the goalless knot in the storm. The winter signing failed to score in eight appearances, caught the eye in Hoffenheim because he was checking his cell phone on the bench… The striker finally wants to let the bell ring on the pitch against the underclass opponents. Because competitor Wilfried Kanga (24) is in top shape again – and wants his regular place back.

► The wobbly defense needs good performances for new self-confidence. The recently injured Marc Kempf (28) and Marton Dardai (21) trained with the team on Thursday – and should bring stability again.

► Marco Richter (25) is suspended in Freiburg (April 1). Coach Schwarz has the opportunity to test alternatives for the right track. Candidates are Peter Pekarik (36), Jonjoe Kenny (26) and Julian Eitschberger (19).
