Hertha BSC will be without Niklas Stark for their Bundesliga clash against RB Leipzig on Sunday.


The 26-year-old central defender has tested positive for COVID-19 and is self-isolating at home.

With Dedryck Boyata and Marton Dardai also sidelined, new signing Marc Oliver Kempf and 17-year-old Linus Gechter are Hertha's only fit centre-backs at the moment.

"These personnel issues have been a running theme for weeks. We aren't making a fuss though; we trust the players we have," said Hertha coach Tayfun Korkut at the pre-match press conference.

"Linus Gechter's performance last weekend made me sure that he'll play well alongside Marc Kempf.
