SILVA REFLECTS ON HIS INCREDIBLE SCORING RUN

Full-time
90'

FULL TIME! HERTHA 1-3 FRANKFURT

The visitors were too good in the first half but were relatively uncomfortable in the second as they needed Trapp to pull out some saves. Schwolow had very little to do other than pick the ball out of his net three times, and Barkok could have made it four. It's a lesson in ruthlessness from Frankfurt, who bounce back impressively from that opening-day draw with Bielefeld.

BARKOK...MISSES

The substitute has barely been on five minutes and he races clear, but with only Schwolow to beat - and the game to kill completely - he sends a measured shot just wide of the target.
88'

STARK STOPPED

Great ball whipped in from the right, Stark gets a glancing header on it but Trapp - once again - is smartly down to his right to cling on to the ball.
86'

HINTEREGGER O(M)G

That's the Austria international defender's third own goal for Frankfurt, and the fifth in his Bundesliga career. Only Nikolce Noveski and Manfred Kaltz have ever put more goals past their own 'keeper (6).

STRAIGHT AT TRAPP

Tousart connects with Lukebakio's cross, directing a volley goalwards but Trapp is handily placed at the near post to leap up and snatch the ball out of the air.

GOAL! HERTHA 1-3

Fabulous run by Torunarigha down the left - what is he doing there? - and his cross, which was aimed at Cordoba, is turned into his own goal by Hinteregger. Hertha have one back..they couldn't, could they?

GOAL! HERTHA 0-3 FRANKFURT

There's surely no way back for Hertha now. Kamada collects Torunarigha's miscued clearance on the right and finds Rode on the edge of the box - he bends a sublime shot into the far corner to make it three. Beautiful goal, and Frankfurt hit cruising altitude.

Just 21 minutes after coming on, Maier is off again...must be an injury. Mittelstädt goes into midfield alongside Tousart and Plattenhardt slots in at right-back.

IT'S ALL HERTHA

The hosts must have gotten quite a rocket from Labbadia at half-time. Another ball comes into the box, and this time Trapp has to be right on top of Cordoba to smother. Suddenly, the red-and-blacks of Frankfurt look like the blue-and-whites of Hertha in the first half.
62'

CUNHA GOES A-TEASING

The Brazilian, called up to the national team for the first time just before the game kicked off, jinks in from the right and looks to bend a shot into the far corner - Trapp was stretching but Hinteregger was in the way.
60'

CORDOBA WINS A CORNER

And gets plenty of applause for his efforts...Cunha lines up the set-piece, and Frankfurt make not so much a meal but a real feast of getting it away before Kamada eventually boots it upfield.

BETTER BALANCE

There's definitely less of a gap between the two in the second half, but Frankfurt still have a pretty handy cushion.
58'

PHEW!!

Cunha bends a free-kick in from the left..it's off a Frankfurt head and then Lukebakio and comes desperately close to finding the far corner of the net. Huge let-off for Frankfurt.
56'

TOURE IN THE BOOK

That'll be a second yellow of the half and the game for Frankfurt as Toure leaps in to challenge Tousart.

TOUSART VS. TRAPP

The Frankfurt goalkeeper comes out and double fists a high ball straight to Tousart, 25 yards from goal. The French midfielder brings the ball down and fires a powerful shot on target, but Trapp is well placed and grabs it.
51'

FRANKFURT CHANCE

Three Hertha defenders go for the same ball, it drops for Frankfurt, and when a low cross comes in, Dost gets his feet in a muddle - if he'd made contact, Schwolow would have been struggling, surely.

NOT A GOOD OMEN

ALL CHANGE

Well, there'll be three at half-time for Hertha. Labbadia is in heated discussion with Cordoba, Maier and Zeefuik...who'll be making way.

HALF-TIME: HERTHA 0-2 FRANKFURT

That was a half of two games: Hertha struggling to get theirs going, Frankfurt's plan working to perfection. That was poor from the hosts, very impressive from the visitors.
Half-time
45'

AND FINALLY HERTHA WAKE UP

Cunha has a shot blocked as blue-and-white shirts find some verve in the Frankfurt final third, but they can't make anything of the corner.

GOALSCORERS CLUB

Silva and Dost have Frankfurt in the driving seat, and there can be no argument. Hertha have been very much second-best.
37'

GOAL! HERTHA 0-2 FRANKFURT

Bas Dost just loves playing Hertha! The free-kick awarded from Tousart's foul is just arced into the box, around the penalty spot, by Kamada and Dost bullies the Hertha defence to plant a firm header wide of Schwolow's right hand. Gorgeous ball in, textbook header, and Frankfurt are flying.

GOAL! HERTHA 0-1 FRANKFURT

NOT FAR FROM SILVA

While the Hertha fans boo as Tousart lies injured, Frankfurt go forward, and Silva gets in front of his marker to meet Toure's near-post cross - his header flies narrowly over.

HERT-ING

The hosts have got no rhythm going forward as yet - quite a surprise for a team that has been goal-happy so far this season. Frankfurt have them shackled for now.
21'

MORE TROUBLE FOR FRANKFURT?

Abraham goes down under a challenge from Lukebakio...the visiting captain limps away after getting to his feet. After losing Kostic to a twisted right knee, Hütter won't want to make another enforced change.
20'

DOST NODS WIDE

Ilsanker wins the ball back, and when the ball goes out to Toure, his cross finds Dost, who gets up well but can't direct the header. But a shot...well, header across Hertha's bows.
18'

SLOW OUT OF THE BLOCKS

Usain Bolt tore round this blue track in 2009 but Hertha have not shown anything like as much verve in the opening 18 minutes. They have barely crossed the halfway line, which is also testament to Frankfurt's pressing.

SLICK SILVA

Cute footwork from the Frankfurt forward, skips past one, nutmegs another, but Torunarigha comes across and with what can only be described as 'an unceremonious clog' bashes the ball out of play before Kostic can reach the ball deep inside the Hertha box.

Lukebakio is on the turf holding his head and an ankle in what could be a yoga pose if it weren't the result of being clattered into by Stefan Ilsanker. Not lasting damage, it seems, fortunately.

1ST HALF KICKS OFF

LECKIE OUT

Not good news for fans of the Australia international - he's got a neck injury, and so misses out.

OLDIES BUT GOODIES?

The Frankfurt starting XI's average age is 29.4 years old - the last time they were that 'experienced' was on 30 January, 2010, when they averaged 29.5 years in a 2-1 defeat to Cologne.

HAVING SAID THAT...

Frankfurt forward Bas Dost has won all four of his previous meetings with Hertha and has scored five goals in those matches.

GOAL GUARANTEE?

Hertha have scored four times in each of their competitive outings this season - the 5-4 DFB Cup loss to Braunschweig and the 4-1 win in Bremen - and have netted a club record 112 goals in their previous meetings with Frankfurt. Let's not jinx this, but surely...

'WE MUST DEFEND BETTER'

Frankfurt boss Adi Hütter is aware Hertha are a team with a sharp cutting edge: "They're really good up front. We need to defend better...We need quality in the final third. It annoys me that we don't see things through calmly."

FRANKFURT LINE-UP

Two changes for Adi Hütter: Almamy Touré comes in at right wing-back in place of Danny da Costa while Stefan Ilsanker, who came off the bench to replace Sebastian Rode against Bielefeld, starts alongside the former Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund man in central midfield tonight.

HERTHA LINE-UP

'Why change a winning team?' is clearly a maxim Bruno Labbadia lives by. Because he hasn't. Same XI that started in Bremen start again tonight, and you have to say, why not?

CUNHA ON FIRE

Cunha has scored seven goals in 13 appearances since joining Hertha in January. He tallied nine in 52 for former club RB Leipzig.

SILVA LINING?

Andre Silva has scored nine goals in his last 11 Bundesliga matches since the coronavirus-enforced hiatus, as well as 10 in his last 16. He struck twice in the 4-1 win away to Hertha in June.

FRANKFURT TEAM NEWS

Forward Ragnar Ache and left-back Jetro Willems have both returned to training following injuries that kept them out of the season opener, but - while Ache could be in contention to make the squad for the trip to Berlin - Willems is still some time off featuring after over eight months out. Evan N'Dicka is another who we won't see in action for a little while, having picked up an ankle injury on the eve of the new season.

HERTHA TEAM NEWS

New signing Jhon Cordoba could make his first start for the club. Santiago Ascacibar and Javairo Dilrosun are the only absentees for Hertha's first home outing of the new Bundesliga term as they look to build on their flying start.
