On Saturday, Magdeburg suffered a 2-4 defeat at the hands of what can be called an A2-Team of Hertha BSC. Overall, it was an even match, only at the end did Magdeburg not pay enough attention in defense, and thus Hertha scored 2 goals in the last 5 minutes of the match.
An audience of 6,277 was well entertained though, and large parts of the match created some hope for the coming season. Still three weeks to go till the start of the new season. Magdeburg will face Hanover 96’s reserve team in Hanover.
