Nothing. You need to compensate the torque, slipstream and may be even crosswind. The most critical moment is , when you take off, but are still slow. Try to fly parallel to the ground until you are fast enough and do not pull back, as you will stall and when you push the throttle forward in a stall/near stall the torque will flip the plane.

It is common thing, i always put a little right aileron for take off.
Most important thing is to not force tail to lift, just wait until tail lifts off by it self, sometime you should put tiny back pressure on stick to delay tail lift or when you aim for 3 point take off. I think in Fw 190 series, 3 point take off is one which you are looking for.

The little bit of right stick is the normal method, and how you should do it.

Alternatively, keep the stick centered, and when you get the tail up apply slight forward pressure to keep the 109 on the ground (two wheels) for about 5-10 secs past the point where it'd normally want to take off on its own.
You'll pick up enough extra speed that when you ease it off ground, the wing drop is less apparent.

Trade off is more time on the rudder to keep running straight on the ground.

The key is exactly what Shagrat says though, ease it off and don't pull back.

10 seconds? Whole take off takes something like 10 seconds
