Berlin For sports director Fredi Bobic of Bundesliga soccer team Hertha BSC, the upcoming opponent Bayer 04 Leverkusen has many surprises in store.
“I really like to see the team play soccer, they have a lot of great soccer players with a lot of speed. And I also like the way they play, “said the 50-year-old about the factory club, which will be a guest at the Olympiastadion on Sunday (3:30 p.m. / DAZN),” interestingly, they always have phases of weakness, not just this season, but also the years before. Where you sometimes think, now they win five, six in a row, then they lose three in a row. “
Bobic hopes that Leverkusen will show a different pace after the 4-0 gala in the Europa League on Thursday against Betis Sevilla in Berlin: “We hope that we will catch them in the right phase, where they are currently in their weak phase to have. That will be our goal. “
Hertha coach Pal Dardai relies on a compact style of play for his team. “You have a lot of fast footballers. If the rooms have, it will be difficult for us. ”For the 45-year-old, it doesn’t count that Leverkusen haven’t scored a goal against Hertha in the last four games:“ Statistics are always nice, but in football it’s always the moment that counts. “
Bobic has already experienced certain moments: “I know that they can be beaten. I’ve had a lot of painful defeats with my teams, but also very interesting victories that weren’t expected. I’ve also seen the two faces many times. “
