In the first leg of the Bundesliga relegation, Hertha BSC presented himself on Thursday evening against HSV (0: 1) over long distances in a desolate constitution. Despite the home bankruptcy in the first duel, coach Felix Magath has not yet written off with the red pants in the first duel and put on a plan.
“It is not primarily about appearing dominant, but above all about being efficient in the actions. We need this efficiency in the second leg,” said the veteran in an interview with the “Bild” the route for the second leg on Monday (Hamburg (( 8:30 p.m.).
In the first leg, the eleven of the interim coach had missed many basic virtues. The Berliners only won around 40 percent of their duels, and the team also often looked lethargic on the ball. In the end, the HSV had a clear 11: 6 chances in the goal.
“We lacked the compactness, so we offered the HSV too much space. This led to the fact that we did not get intensely enough into the duels. In some situations we lacked aggressiveness, but also the game of the game,” analyzed Magath the shortcomings.

An important factor to better put the necessary determination will be the return of Santiago Ascacíbar, who had missed the first leg due to a yellow lock. “His aggressiveness will help us on Monday to be able to decide the relegation for us,” Magath is certain.
The 69-year-old stated that Kevin-Prince Boateng, who was not used against the second division club on Thursday against the second division club, will continue to be important: “I am convinced that Prince in Hamburg-and also for the future of Hertha BSC – a decisive factor will and will remain, “said Magath.
The coach denied a supposedly previous dispute with the veteran. “The topic is not an issue,” said Magath, “We, Prince and I, will discuss how he is most valuable for our Hertha in the second leg.”
Before the relegation game, the “long distances Bild” had reported that there was Zoff between the leader and his trainer.
The coach fox also rejected criticism of his decisions from the first leg such as the position of Youngster Luca Wollschläger, who did not appear. “I have not experimented. We have some players who came from injuries or were sick and not yet over 90 plus X. I also have to take that into account for my considerations for Monday,” said Magath.
