7:10 pm
the coronavirus suspension. preparing for the taunts from thousands of rival fans is usually one of the hurdles a player must clear before an intercity darby but not this time the coronavirus pandemic means the stuns will be empty when on your own berlin head to head they're looking to do the double over their city neighbors but bundesliga survival remains the name of the game i mean does explain getting 6 points in total against chata. so an additional 3 would help with our main goal of staying in the league at all. also for me the 1st priority is staying in the legal not being city champions in the years that. meisterschaft had eased further from trouble with a 3 male win at hoffenheim last weekend the 11th placed side say at one point and
7:11 pm
one spot above 3rd darby rivals there was criticism that the players celebrations against hoffenheim were too hands on hygiene guidelines say players shouldn't talk but now coach bruno of india wants to concentrate on the actual football even if his 2nd game in charge will be another surreal affair. or hexes how much we've already talked a lot of banks have this isn't just darby we would have imagined there's absolutely no question about that could we don't want to think about that anymore we've had enough of that over the past few months from now our focus has to be on want we can influence the soulish. good it'll be a berlin darby like no other without any funds the players will have to generate all the passion. and we are joined now by the noise from data for it's outside of
7:12 pm
olympic stadium ahead of tonight's game tom big derby no fans you get lonely out there yet was probably likely to be a fairly lonely evening for everybody involved. and that includes the players who obviously going to be missing their supporters tonight playing in an empty olympia start your now it's not really done the doggie day atmosphere any favors as you can probably imagine because a game like this usually leaves off everything that goes on around in the anticipation to the game in the stands of course when we think back to the 1st leg of this dog the. ground back in november those fantastic choreographed displays from each set of fans you know are of course going to be missing tonight it's football stripped of its bare bones of $22.00 players and in this case 75000 empty seats but as we heard in the report of course the the city championship or the meisterschaft as it's known is on the line so nonetheless
7:13 pm
a dramatic evening our police expecting any fans to congregate congregate outside of the stadium well as you can probably see behind me there's not very much going on here at the moment now usually on the usual match day this place that i'm standing in would be full of fans drinking a last drink before heading into take their seats. at the moment that's not really the case now we spoke to some police here just a few moments ago and they told us that they're not particularly worried they don't have any information to suggest that there are any large gatherings to be planned and you know this was something that was discussed a lot when the debate around the so-called ghost games was in full flow whether or not fans could be trusted to stay away or whether they would gather outside stadiums which would of course be a social distancing disaster but we saw last weekend that those gatherings haven't materialized and i think there's nothing to suggest this evening that this is going to be any different let's get to the get actual game itself now who is favored to
7:14 pm
win. i think it's probably fair to say this time that heads a can regard themselves as favorites just about now they only just got their noses in front of it on your own in the league as we heard there in the report and that was bruno live at the year's 1st game in charge last weekend but it was a very different hats aside and a much more impressive one than we saw in the 1st leg of this darby back in november of last year having said that these are still 230 well matched teams there's not very much to tell between them and when you and i have also been very effective particularly from set pieces so far this season that counter attacks have occasionally been very quick and ruthless they've had to don't manage to deal with those 2 things they could be in for a very difficult evening like i said i think hatcher of just about probably are going into this one as favorites but very difficult match to call and you know with so much on the line i would like to make a prediction tongan i outside of berlin's olympic stadium thank you and with
