KALOU GOES CLOSE!

Hertha break with pace and the ball comes to the veteran striker, but he can only fire wide of the upright.
90' + 1'

LAST CHANCE SALOON

We're into added time. Will anyone snatch a winner in this one?

<- Sebastian Soto
-> Linton Maina
83'

HANNOVER FORTRESS

Hertha have had several chances to take the lead. The best of them came when Kalou was put through on goal but could not get his shot off. He managed to square it to a teammate waiting in the middle, but the visitors are too quick and get men in position to block the shot.

LIKE FOR LIKE

Hertha's second change sees Leckie make way for Dilrosun as Dardai continues with an attacking quartet.
76'
<- Javairo Dilrosun
-> Mathew Leckie
74'

NEARLY THE BREAKTHROUGH

Kalou tests Esser with a stinging shot from his left foot. It's a bit too centrally placed, however, and Hertha have only a corner to show for it.
72'

FIRST CHANGE

Thomas Doll has made his first subsitituion, with Müller coming on for Muslija.
73'
<- Nicolai Müller
-> Florent Muslija
67'

SHOULD HAVE DONE BETTER

The free kick bounces around inside the Hertha area before landing at the boot of Haraguchi, who really should have got his shot on target.
67'

FREE KICK IN A DANGEROUS POSITION

Maina wins Hannover a free kick on the right side of the pitch...
61'

ATTACKING CHANGE

Hertha make the game's first substitution with Davie Selke replacing Skjelbred, who was on a yellow. A striker is on for a midfielder and it seems that Dardai is not willing to settle for the draw.
60'
<- Davie Selke
-> Per Skjelbred
56'

END TO END

Muslija fires a free kick on target at the Hertha end, and Jarstein immediately releases Ibisevic on the counter. The captain creates space with a lovely backheel and gets the ball into the centre to Duda, who fires his shot over the bar.

CAN THEY HOLD ON?

50'

EXCELLENT SHOT!

Florent Muslija has one of the best shots of the match so far. He cuts in from the left, shifts the ball onto his right foot and curls one on target. Jarstein gets his hands to it. Corner!
47'

HERE WE GO AGAIN!

Hannover get us back underway. Neither side has made any half-time substitutions.
Kick-off!

AS YOU WERE AT THE BREAK

The teams have returned to the dressing rooms and things are still all square in Berlin. It's been a scrappy affair and neither side has been able to find the key to unlock their opponents. Will we see the goals fly in in the second half?
Half-time
45' + 2'

NEARLY THERE!

The corner is defended and cleared, but the ball comes back to Anton who forces Jarstein into a save, pushing the ball out for another corner. The ball flashes across goal and the whistle goes for half time.
45' + 1'

LATE CORNER

Rekik is one again a rock at the heart of defense and blocks a cross. Hannover have a corner in the last minute of the first half.
43'

TACTICS AND MORE TACTICS

Grujic is the next player to be booked in an incident nearly identical to Skjelbred's earlier yellow. He goes in the book, but the break is stopped.

substitutesMarko Grujic
42'

OVER AGAIN

Marvin Plattenhardt curls in a free kick from the left onto the head of Kalou. The Ivorian can only put the ball over for a goal kick.
39'

THE DEFENSES HAVE IT

Rekik and Anton have been walls for their sides: neither has yet lost a duel.
36'

TWICE AS MANY SHOTS

Hertha have had 6 shots on goal to Hannover's 3.
34'

DANGEROUS CROSS

Hannover manage to get into the Hertha half and work the ball out wide where Haraguchi fizzes in a quick cross. Unfortunately, no one is ablt to put it away.
29'

CHANCE GOES BEGGING

Kalou works the ball well through the centre of the pitch and into the Hannover area. There are several players in blue around it, but none can get a proper shot off. 
25'

PHYSICAL BATTLE

Neither side is shying away from the tackles. Grujic is the latest player to pick himself up off the floor after a tough coming together.

HIGH AND OVER

Hertha have another corner and get the ball into the centre of the area. Grujic manages to get his head to it, but it sails far over the bar.

HOLDING THEIR OWN

Hannover have won 70% of the duels in this match so far.
18'

DANGEROUS ON THE COUNTER

Hertha enjoyed a decent spell of posession but nearly conceded the first goal after impressive work from Weydandt, who controlled the ball and held it up for his teammates. Hannover look threatening on the break.
14'

NEARLY SNUCK IN!

Matthew Leckie does very well on the Hertha right wing to get on the end of a crossfield pass and fire a shot on goal from a narrow angle. Esser does well to get a hand on it.
11'

TACTICAL FOUL

Skjelbred sees the game's first yellow for a foul that successfully broke up what could have been a dangerous Hannover break.

substitutesPer Skjelbred

SHOULD HAVE BURIED IT!

Grujic should have put the ball in the net for Hertha but can't make good enough contact. Hertha have their first corner.
8'

HIGH AND WIDE

Weydandt manages to get his head to the ball, but can't get his header on target. The ball loops out for a goal kick.

CORNER

FIRST SHOT

Linton Maina makes a nice run down the right and manages to cut into the centre and get off a shot, his side's first of the match after resisting early pressure from the hosts.
