Hertha BSC is simply not moving in the Bundesliga basement.
Against FC Augsburg, the Berliners lost a 1-0 lead in the hectic final phase on Saturday and only managed to score 1: 1 in a game marked by fighting.
This means that Hertha has won four league games in a row and remains close to the relegation zone with 14 points.
Michael Gregoritsch equalized for Augsburg in the last second.
Hertha assistant coach Andreas Neuendorf saw the red card in the hectic final phase.
A week after the painful 2-0 bankruptcy in the city derby at Union Berlin, the former Augsburg-based Marco Richter (40) shot the hosts in the lead after a mistake by FCA defender Robert Gumny.
Augsburg, who defeated FC Bayern 2-1 on the previous day, are just behind Hertha with 13 points.
Help in the storm
After the bitter derby defeat, Dardai had mainly complained about the lack of penetration in the attack.
Ishak Belfodil instead of Krzysztof Piatek in the striker should remedy the situation against Augsburg.
And he also had the first scoring opportunity early on.
After a pass from Suat Serdar, Belfodil (7th) failed to FCA goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz.
In the Berlin Olympic Stadium, Hertha struggled to set up the game properly, but Augsburg was mostly compact.
And when Hertha got in front of the gate, Gikiewicz was in the way.
The Pole also had the upper hand in the second duel with Belfodil before Augsburg came up stronger.
Hertha Augsburg now allowed too much defensively.
Iago tested Hertha goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow with a solid shot.
That made Gumny's fatal mistake all the more unfortunate.
The defender and the rushing Gikiewicz were unsure who should clear the ball after a back pass.
Gumny took over and was surprised in the turn by Richter, who poked the ball over the line.
At the beginning of the second half, the level of play flattened.
Both teams fought and neutralized their offensive efforts, which remained only half-chances for a long time.
Occasionally, Hertha still flashed his individual class.
After winning the ball, Serdar dribbled through all Augsburg lines and forced Gikiewicz to make the next save.
A goal by Jordan Torunarigha was rightly disallowed for being offside.
On the other hand, Schwolow had to intervene and held twice against Andre Hahn and Iago.
In stoppage time, the Augsburgers showed cleverness and achieved the equalizer.Keywords:
