    Hertha Berlin Still Full Of Belief

    Post by Ali Swaidan on Sat Feb 28, 2009 8:10 pm

    Following their unlucky defeat last week to Wolfsburg, Hertha Berlin will be looking to keep touch with the very top teams by getting back to winning ways at home to bottom side Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday.

    There will be no room for sentiment as they look to claim all three points against former trainer Hans Meyer’s Gladbach side. Meyer is somewhat of a hero in the capital having rescued the Old Lady from relegation a few seasons back.

    The fact that the Fohlen are currently bottom of the pile with only 16 points means nothing, according to Hertha defender Steve von Bergen. "Third against last means nothing,” he warned. “Gladbach are playing for survival and recently gave Hoffenheim a lot of problems.”

    Hertha’s system has been their strength this season and no other team in the league closes teams down as well as Lucien Favre’s side.

    They have already beaten the likes of Bayern Munich, Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen, although they have tended to drop points against the so-called ‘smaller’ teams.

    "We defend intelligently and have given away the fewest fouls and also received the fewest yellow cards," Favre explained on the club’s website.

    "We are concentrating on ourselves. Our opponents interest us a little but not too much."

    Striker Andriy Voronin believes that the Bundesliga title is still on the horizon for Hertha.

    "Everything is possible this year," Voronin told Kicker magazine.

    "Three or four years ago, everybody knew before the season [started that] Bayern Munich would finish first by a wide margin. But this season no single team is showing great consistency.

    "It is too early to speak about the title, though. You can drop quickly. Our next games against Gladbach, [Energie] Cottbus and Leverkusen will tell us where we are headed."
