For Max Ruse, the question of the best football club was clarified in the capital after the next derby success at Bertha BSC. Whether Union now has this status, the striker answered after the deserved 3: 2 (1: 0) in the DFB Cup dedicated finale short and short: Stand now: Yes.

Only in November Union had also decided the duel in the league for himself, now followed in the round of the last eight in the trophy. A derby is always a bit horny, said Ruse, especially in the DFB Cup.

After moving into the quarterfinals, the 33-year-old even looked a bit further: We still have two games for the final, still two victories until we play here again. Let’s see what pairings come. We do not have to hide
In the eighth finale Union put into the game of our stamp, Ruse said, who had done the preliminary work at the leadership hit of attacker Andreas Voglsammer (11th): We have it very, very well done. Also coach Urs Fischer praised his team for a great and passionate achievement.
