Hertha coach Felix Magath doesn’t see his team at a psychological disadvantage in the relegation games against Hamburger SV, despite the recent setbacks.
Self-praise: Hertha coach Felix Magath is convinced of himself before the relegation against HSV: “The fact is, if you look at it objectively, since I’ve been in charge, we’ve made a positive development. Anyone who saw the game in Dortmund saw two first division clubs, and we were one of them,” said Magath ahead of the first qualifying game to stay up in the Bundesliga on Thursday (8.30 p.m.).
Magath confident: “There is no reason to go into the task with a bad feeling. We’re in good form, we’ll show that twice more,” Magath emphasized to media representatives on Wednesday at the Berliners’ training camp in Kienbaum. While Hertha had repeatedly just missed out on staying up in the league on the last three match days of the season, HSV still took third place in the 2nd division with five wins in a row.
Hertha Favorit: Hamburg’s coach Tim Walter said on Tuesday: “We have the momentum on our side.” Magath put the opponent’s winning streak against teams like Jahn Regensburg, FC Ingolstadt and Hansa Rostock into perspective. “I’m sure that if everything goes normally, we’ll have a good chance of exiting these two relegation games as winners,” said the 68-year-old.
