After the bitter defeat in the DFB Cup at second division side Eintracht Braunschweig, Hertha coach Sandro Schwarz wants to focus on defence.
"We showed a very good face for 50, 55 minutes," said the coach of the Bundesliga soccer club after the 5: 6 penalty shootout. "And then we showed a face again where we conceded goals that were too easy. That will be the task of analyzing that - and also taking good things out of the game." It was "a different game, a different task," said Schwarz before the start of the Bundesliga at Union Berlin (July 6, 3:30 p.m. / Sky).
Defender Marvin Plattenhardt, who missed a penalty, tried to be optimistic about the Berlin derby: "It wasn't all bad, there were also a lot of positives. In the end, we're pretty disappointed that we didn't progress, but we can still get out of it to learn."
