Marius Gersbeck made his comeback in goal for the second division soccer team Hertha BSC. In the 6:1 (5:0) victory in the test match against the upper division club Tennis Borussia on Thursday, the 28-year-old guarded the goal of the Bundesliga relegated team in the second 45 minutes. Gersbeck returned to team training on Monday after his suspension was lifted. The club had previously suspended the goalkeeper because he injured a 22-year-old in a nighttime brawl on the sidelines of training camp in July. Before that, the newcomer from Karlsruher SC had only played in goal in the first pre-season test match.

Dardai called Robert Kwasigroch into goal for the first half and gave many additional players a chance. At the beginning, only one player from Hertha’s U23, El-Jindaoui, was on the pitch.

After the break, Dardai cheerfully took over. In addition to Gersbeck and Myziane Maolida, five young players were used in the second half of the game. Gersbeck had to reach behind himself after just two minutes. TeBe captain Tim Oschmann scored from a penalty in the 47th minute of the game.

Leander Popp scored the sixth and final goal for Hertha in the 75th minute.
