After an annoyingly long period of pretending to care about meaningless friendlies in the depths of Brandenburg, the BerlinLiga action is back with a bang as we already move in to the bulk of the games of Matchday 2.
Tonights main game for us takes place at the Julius Hirsch Sportanlage as TUS Makkabi welcome Tennis Borussia Berlin in the Eichkamp Derby. Makkabi, who were last years runners-up, are in the process of coming to terms with a mass exodus of players over the summer as they saw some of their best players move on to other clubs within the division, including 2 of TeBe’s new boys, Alexander Kynass and Hamdi Chamki. They had a nightmare start to the campaign on Sunday seeing themselves beaten 3-1 away at Rudow and tonight they will be looking to erase that memory with a win against their local rivals.
TeBe had a solid start to the campaign getting a point at home to a very solid Berliner SC side and they will be looking to build on this encouraging performance. There were some very bright moments in Saturdays game and if Thokomeni and Chamki can continue to link up well and put in shifts like they did at the weekend then I see no reason why chances will not be created. Obviously though, you are only as good as the chances you convert and TeBe will be hoping that Micha Fuss can continue to help them overcome a problem that hampered last seasons campaign.
Kick off is at 18.30pm and the game will take place at the Julius Hirsch Sportanlage. Nearest S-Bahn station is Messe Sud. Bottles of Becks and the D.A.W.B award winning spicy sausages will, hopefully, be on offer.
