At Hertha, before the guest appearance in Mönchengladbach, the quality of the offensive department is praised above all. But the statistics are not on the side of the Berliners.

Hertha BSC wants to gild the start of the 3rd game day in the Bundesliga with one or more points with a qualitative offensive performance.

Accompanied by 1,500 supporters, coach Sandro Schwarz’ team has to compete at Borussia Mönchengladbach today (8.30 p.m. / DAZN). However, Gladbach has only lost one of the last eleven home games against Berlin. And coach Schwarz has never been able to triumph against the team from the Lower Rhine with Mainz 05.

Starting position:

Hertha scored their first point win against Eintracht Frankfurt last matchday – after the derby defeat at the start of the season. In view of the new season, the table 14. draw level with the current fourth-placed Gladbach on points with a win on the Lower Rhine.


Also missing are Kelian Nsona, Omar Alderete, Dongjun Lee and Jessic Ngankam. Defender Linus Gechter is also unavailable due to an infection. Captain Marvin Plattenhardt and Myziane Maolida are questionable, although the Frenchman is “a step further” according to coach Schwarz.


Sandro Schwarz, who was still without a win as a coach against Gladbach: “I can remember very good Gladbach games. We drew once.”


The coaches Schwarz and Daniel Farke worked in the first Russian league before their Bundesliga commitment. While Schwarz remained loyal to Dynamo Moscow until the end of the season after the start of the Ukraine conflict, Farke did not coach a game at FK Krasnodar, but immediately returned to Germany. The two coaches will only get to know each other in Mönchengladbach.
