Last week, after three cases of coronavirus infection were found among football players and coaches, DFL officials quarantined the entire Hertha Berlin team. The quarantine will last until April 28. As a result, the three matches of the Berlin club were cancelled, namely Mainz (April 18), Freiburg (April 21) and the next round with Schalke (April 24).
With the end of the season, Hertha does not have many possible dates to make up for the pause. Therefore, the Piątek team will end this season madly. According to the updated schedule, the Berliners will participate in five games in just 15 days. Each of them had only two days of rest. The three games that will be held in Berlin may be a comfort.
The league marathon will start on Monday, May 3, and the away game against Mainz will end on Saturday, May 15 with FC Koeln. They will also hold meetings with Freiburg (May 6), Armenia (May 9) and Schalke (May 12). At the end of the season, they will play Hoffenheim on Saturday, May 22.
The accumulation of games may be a big problem for Hertha, who is fighting for relegation this season. Piątek’s team is currently ranked 16th (in the play-offs), with a score of 26 points. Koeln (FC Koeln) followed closely, followed by Arminia Bielefeld (Arminia Bielefeld), who ranked 15th with 30 points (game 2). The Piątka team will compete with two teams in a two-week marathon.
Krzysztof Piątek has participated in all 28 league games in Hertha this season. He scored six goals and two assists.
