Preparations for Matchday 1 of the new Bundesliga season are underway. On Tuesday, Florian Kohfeldt’s men completed a team training session out on the pitch followed by a session in the gym, the game against Hertha BSC in focus. Milot Rashica did not take part in the morning’s session as he continues to rest. Tahith Chong, on the other hand, was able to take part as normal after the injury scare during Saturday’s DFB-Pokal tie.

Manuel Mbom was also back involved on the pitch on Tuesday morning – the academy product had previously been out with tonsillitis. Captain Niklas Moisander and centre-back partner Ömer Toprak took part in the warm up, but returned inside to continue with individual sessions, skipping the team exercises in order to reduce strain. 

Oscar Schönfelder and Simon Straudi only participated in certain team exercises. In the afternoon, the team split up into two groups and worked on their physical strength in the gym.
