Six games in 19 days: DFL reschedules Hertha games

Hertha BSC has to face an expected tight program in the fight to stay up after quarantine.

The German Football League (DFL) announced on Thursday the rescheduling of the three games that had been rescheduled because of several corona cases in Berlin. In total, Hertha has to play six games between May 3 and the season finale on May 22.

In the unplanned short comeback of the Monday games on May 3, Hertha will be visiting relegation rivals FSV Mainz 05 (6:00 p.m.). The home game against SC Freiburg, which has also been rescheduled, will take place on May 6th (6.30 p.m. /DAZN), at the relegated Schalke 04 the capital club will now be on May 12th (6:00 p.m.)

In order to integrate the new appointments into the rest of the game plan, two previously scheduled matches on matchday 32 were swapped: VfB Stuttgart will meet FC Augsburg on May 7th. The relegation duel between Hertha BSC and Arminia Bielefeld will instead take place on May 9th.

After several positive corona tests, Hertha was the first Bundesliga club to be in complete isolation. A 14-day domestic quarantine applies to the team and the coaching staff. Previously, “only” second division clubs were affected by such a measure.
