Goals: 0-1 Ibisevic (1'), 1-1 Malli (41'), 2-1 Gomez (44'), 2-2 Rekik (53'), 3-2 Origi (60'), 3-3 Selke (83')
Penalty miss Gomez (20')
Ibisevic had gone 12 Bundesliga games without scoring prior to this dramatic encounter, his last goal coming against Wolfsburg in April. The Bosnia and Herzegovina international rediscovered his scoring touch against the same opponents after just 21 seconds here, the 33-year-old latching onto Valentino Lazaro’s pass before prodding in. Desperate to end a run of seven home matches without a win, the Wolves bit back and despite Gomez’s penalty miss and two disallowed goals for offside, Yunus Malli subsequently nodded home an equaliser. It got even better for the hosts prior to the break, Gomez making amends for his earlier error with a shot that went in after striking both posts to give Wolfsburg a half-time lead.
Hertha enjoyed a wining double over Wolfsburg last season, and the capital side were sensing one more triumph when Rekik’s superb back-flick header looped in for the equaliser. Incredibly, the pendulum soon swung back in the favour of Martin Schmidt’s men with Divock Origi bundling the ball over the line with his chest following a corner. Then, just when it seemed the home side were on course for maximum returns, Selke scored at the second attempt to seal a valuable point for Pal Dardai's battling outfit.
