At the beginning of the 27th day in the Bundesliga, Hertha easily gained the upper hand over her neighbor to Union Berlin (4-0).
Vedad Ibisevic was the big hero of this meeting. The former PSG striker was crucial to his first three goals. He started by opening the score in the 51st, placing a fine header on a cross from Marvin Plattenhardt.
Then, just under a minute later, he launched Belgian Dodi Lukebakio for the station wagon. The latter easily obstructed the opposing goalkeeper before squeezing the leather into the empty nets. There was no longer any excitement in this meeting, but it did not stop the Berlin team from continuing their speed and finding the net twice more. Cunha took the score 3-0 (61st) before Belgian Dedryck Boyata closed the score on a furious head after a corner (77th).
By winning this Friday, Hertha climbed to a 10th place in the standings, four points ahead of today’s opponents. Piatek and his teammates are on track to stay in the top flight. The Union, for its part, is 12th and not immune to a shipwreck.
