Hertha opened up a three-point cushion over the chasing pack with a 1-0 win in Cologne at the weekend and their unlikely challenge for a place in the UEFA Champions League next season is showing little sign of stuttering, with the crowds flocking back to the Olympiastadion to see Pal Dardai's men in action.
