At the same time, Hertha Berlin lost at home to Stuttgart (0-2). Alone on a free kick, Marc-Oliver Kempf had plenty of time to adjust the Berlin goalkeeper with a powerful header (0-1, 9th). A distant shot of Gonzalo castro (0-2, 68th) gave the score its final pace. Berlin captain, Dedryck Boyata played the whole meeting while Dodi Lukebakio went up at half-time. Orel Mangala played 90 minutes on the visitors’ side.
