The Berliners barely let Mainz in and snagged the opponents away in the first half. The pressure was effective, and the guests make mistakes.
Alexander Hack big win gave the old lady the opportunity to take the lead in the fifth minute. Davy Silk ran single-handedly toward Finn Dahmen past Mainz, but he shot very quickly from 16 metres.
Rheinhessen’s team needed 20 minutes to warm up, but then, as they did against Bayern, they played bravely forward. Only a short time later, the 05 team took the lead, also because Marcel Lutka made a terrible mistake in the Berlin square. Sylvain started and destroyed the ball and finally recovered it through the stops of Anton Stach and Karim Onisio. The Swiss then managed to pass Lotka from a narrow angle to the right of Berlin’s baseline (25′). The ball slid between the goalkeeper’s upper body and his arm.

Ten minutes later, the capital club was lucky when Stat denied another Mainz goal. When he shot from the edge of the penalty area, Leandro Martins Barreiro cleared the ball slightly. However, the latter was a punishable offside (35).
Before the break, Moussa Nyakhati fouled Dedric Boyata in the penalty area. After consulting with the VAR, referee Patrick Eitrich finally awarded a penalty to Hertha – a reasonable decision. Selke did not allow himself to be asked twice from the point and sent Dahmen crosswise into the wrong corner (45′ + 5′).
After the break, the guests celebrated for the third time – but the goal did not count for the second time. Onisiwo hit hard from a central position in the penalty area. However, the Austrian used his shoulder and arm in formation, which is why the goal (52) was disallowed.
VAR had to become active again in the closing stages. Lucas Tousart, with his elbow, beat Stefan Bell in his team’s penalty area. Ittrich’s ruling did not classify this as a punishable offense (74). Only seconds later, Lutka was able to correct his mistake from the first half: the goalkeeper saved Stach’s header from very close (75).
Mainz continued their attack until the end and finally rewarded themselves in the 81st minute with Bale’s opening goal. After a corner kick in Stach, the mission in the Berlin penalty area went wrong. Bale cleverly took advantage of this and headed the ball into the bottom right post.
Shortly before the final whistle, Selke scored the supposed equalizer – but the joy was short-lived. The old lady striker had made an illegal space earlier against Aaron Martin (89).
Hertha Berlin must continue to shiver to go down after defeat. The gap in number 16 is still four points. If Stuttgart do not score against Bayern Munich on Sunday, the Berlin players will be able to celebrate staying in the league from the sofa.
Freddy Bubeck (General Manager, Sport Hertha BSC Berlin): “It was a strange match with a lot of funny scenes. It was not successful. It was very competitive. There were many controversial scenes. But after the end of the match I saw referee Patrick Etrich and praised him for his excellent performance. What he described was always right.”
Davy Silk (Hertha Berlin): “Today we were unable to show the performance we have given in the past few weeks. Loved Patrick (Etrich, He pointed out. editor) A lot, I told him that too. I think I have a different opinion of the scene. I said if it was a mistake the strikers would score eight fewer goals per season. I had to give myself some space in front of goal.”
Kevin-Prince Boateng (Hertha BSC): “We weren’t in the game today – from the first minute until the end. We weren’t ready in our heads, there were a lot of things missing. We didn’t play well from behind. We gave everything we had in so many games, they still had all the doors open. We still have a great opportunity and we have to try to look at it positively now.”

This was notable: a blatant weakness of the Berlin Standard
There was a lot at stake for the capital club in a duel against Rheinheisen. The old lady could have saved herself by defeating Mainz. In the end, nothing was left again with three points in the last home game of the season. One weakness was obvious: Herta could not handle the standard weakness for several months. Of course, Stefan Bell conceded his own 1: 2 after a corner kick – the 18th goal already received after a free kick. Our corners and free kicks were hair lifts, too. Almost every time the ball landed out of bounds, Vladimir Darida was always allowed to play on Mainz’ head or in the hands of Finn Dahmen.
After a heated discussion with referee Patrik Eitrich, Mainz coach Bo Svensson received his seventh yellow card on Saturday (in his 122nd match on the bench).
