Hertha saves a draw against “Club”
Exchange of blows between Uzun and Tabakovic ends without a winner

Twice super talent Can Uzun for 1. FC Nürnberg, twice top striker Haris Tabakovic for Hertha BSC – the season’s outstanding players also shape the duel between the two traditional clubs in the 2nd Bundesliga in a fascinating way.

Hertha BSC and 1. FC Nürnberg can practically say goodbye to promotion to the Bundesliga despite a spectacular goal show. In the duel between the traditional clubs, the Berliners made up a 0-2 deficit and fought against the Franconians to win 3-3 (1-2). The entertaining draw does little to help both teams in the fight for the top places: Hertha is eighth, two places ahead of FCN.

In front of 51,981 spectators, super talent Can Uzun (14th minute/47th) and Lukas Schmelzer (33rd) scored the goals for Nuremberg. Marten Winkler (44th) and top striker Haris Tabakovic (54th/56th/foul penalty) scored for the hosts. Uzun, 18-year-old top talent who chose against the German national team and for Turkey, and Tabakovic are among the most influential players of this season and once again provided impressive evidence of why that is the case.

Nuremberg was initially the better team, won the duels and appeared more alert. The guests developed a lot of goal threat, especially through counterattacks. Also because the Berliners made a mistake like before the 2-0 defeat and Marton Dardai unluckily presented the ball to FCN striker Schmelzer. Berlin’s goal came out of nowhere.

The second half had barely started when Uzun danced almost effortlessly around the Berlin defenders and scored his 15th goal of the season. The game seemed decided when Tabakovic sent the home fans into ecstasy twice. With 17 goals this season, he is level with Christos Tzolis from Fortuna Düsseldorf at the top of the top scorer list. Suddenly a balanced game developed in which things went back and forth. There was no seventh goal.
