- Hertha Umschaltspiel was barely existent, the rare counterattack opportunities were played sloppy. To pause the pass rate of the capital city was less than 55 percent, which was undercut by the Hertha since the start of data collection in 2004/05 only twice. The first ball action of the guests in the penalty box, it was only after 30 minutes.

- After the break Dardai modified by the acceptance of Darida the first line of defense for his team. These now formed the Czech and Ibisevic, slide came propagated through on the left.
