Borussia Dortmund has used the patzer of the competition and almost solved the Champions League ticket. Coach Lucien Favre’s team defeated Hertha BSC with 1:0 (0:0) and has seven points ahead in five in four remaining games to go.
National player Emre Can (58.) met the vice-champion and thus ensured that he won the championship. the first defeat for Bruno Labbadia in his fifth game as Hertha coach. The small Europacup hopes of the Capital Club received a damper.
“We still have to try to win the remaining games,” said Can at “Sky”. “We have to try to win the remaining games.” We have to look at ourselves. Sure, our goal is to play in the Champions League next season.”

Before the whistle, both teams put a strong sign against racism with a knee drop. The BVB players had already clearly positioned themselves when warming up with their T-shirts.
Less clear was the game of the hosts in the first half. The hosts had a lot of ball ownership, but they could not start much against the well-organized Berliners.
More about it: The players in the individual critique
The Dortmund game lacked creativity and pace. In addition, Erling Haaland (Knebeschwerden) was not a target player in the centre after the Norwegian goal hunter fell again. Achraf Hakimi (8.), Thorgan Hazard (21.) and Julian Brandt (23.) gave up only half-cocks. After the hairdresser affair, Jadon Sancho tried to punish him, but at first acted without success.
Both teams had opportunities in the second half
The guests who, after half an hour of the hit Javairo Dilrosun, were replaced by Alexander Esswein, acted with confidence after their recent series of successes and had most of the first half under control. However, the Hertha had a difficult time with the offensive. The BVB defences organized by Can in the absence of Mats Hummels (blocked) allowed nothing in the first 45 minutes.
After the change, the Dortmund, where Mario Goddess was missing due to the imminent birth of his first child, found more gaps. Sancho conceded from a short distance (51), Brandt then played out a surplus situation poorly (53.).
But the Berliners also became more dangerous. Esswein barely missed the tour (56.). Overall, the game has become more fun. Can struck with a deliberate shot, Brandt had hung up. After the tour, the BVB was offered more space, as Hertha was now more offensive.
