Hertha Secure Third Straight Bundesliga Win

Bundesliga
 
Result: Hertha Berlin 3-1 Fortuna Dusseldorf
 
Date: 04 October 2019
 
Venue: Olympiastadion
 
Hertha Berlin registered a third successive Bundesliga victory after defeating Fortuna Dusseldorf 3-1 at the Olympiastadion on Friday evening.
 
In-form Javairo Dilrosun led Hertha’s attack accompanied by Vedad Ibisevic, as Eduard Lowen missed out due to a knee injury suffered in training. Ibisevic almost had a telling start after combining with free-kick from Vladimir Darida six minutes gone, but the Croatian flashed over the top.
 
Fortuna went ahead though when Dedryck Boyata conceded a foul in the area, an incident that went to the Video Assistant Referee who awarded a penalty on the half-hour mark. Rouwen Hennings stepped forward and fired into the bottom left corner, granting the visitors a solid grounding block to victory at that point in time.
 
The joy was short-cut by Ibisevic, who peeled off a cross from Marius Wolf to lash home from six-yards out 37 minutes on the clock.
 
Hertha took full control afterwards after Dilrosun arrowed home Darida’s perfect cross two minutes to the break with Fortuna caught off guard.
 
The second half gave Fortuna renewed optimism and Kassim Adams nearly grabbed the equaliser seven minutes from the break, but headed off target following a free-kick.
 
Hertha brought in more fire power after 61 minutes despite being in the lead, with Dodi Lukebakio replacing Dilrosun. The change proved crucial within three minutes as Lukebakio launched a quick counterattack to supply Darida who applied a comfortable finish from inside the area.
 
Fortuna looked thoroughly out of the contest soon thereafter, with efforts from Erik Thommy and Oliver Fink in the final 20 minutes their only decent threats.
 
Both sides dropped the pace of the game in the final minutes, leaving Hertha to their third win of the season and only second at home.
