Vedad Ibisevic 21’ Robert Lewandowski 90’+7’
Bayern will score if you give them the time.
Robert Lewandowski scored a really late equalizer in stoppage time for Bayern Munich to leave Berlin with a point. It was a well-deserved point for the display of the current Bundesliga champions.
After Vedad Ibisevic got on the end of the ball to give Hertha Berlin an early lead through a free kick that should have probably not been awarded, Hertha stayed organised through the match and limited Bayern Munich’s chances of getting an equalizer.
A rebound of Arjen Robben’s shot was toe-poked into the net by Lewandowski to get Bayern the late equalizer that came from a free kick that was almost from the same spot as the one that gave Hertha Berlin the lead.
