Hertha Berlin celebrated their second successive win since the resumption of the Bundesliga after a dominant second-half performance gave them a 4-0 home derby victory over neighbours Union Berlin.
Hertha brushed aside their city rivals thanks to four second-half goals, with Vedad Ibisevic’s 51st-minute header followed within seconds when Ibisevic turned provider for Dodi Lukebakio. The same source teed up Matheus Cunha for a low drive nine minutes later to make it three, before Dedryck Boyata headed in Marvin Plattenhardt’s corner 13 minutes from time. Union failed to register a shot on target all night.
Victory for the home side followed up last Saturday’s 3-0 win at Hoffenheim when the league restarted after two months of inactivity due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Played behind closed doors, the result lifted Hertha one place up to 10th on 34 points from 27 games while promoted Union, who won the reverse fixture in November 1-0 thanks to a late penalty, stayed 12th on 30 points.
