SCHADE EQUALISES!

It's not Petersen who's done the job off the bench but Kevin Schade! Christensen comes for a fumbles a free-kick into the box, dropping it right at the feet of the Freiburg youngster who makes no mistake, slotting the ball between some legs to bring us all square again.

500 UP FOR FREIBURG

But not really a stat they want. They've now conceded 500 times in the Bundesliga under Christian Streich. But it's not a bad stat considering he's been in charge very nearly 11 years.

Two summer signings combine as Doan takes down a long ball into the box with his chest, twists this way and that to deceive the Hertha defence before squaring for Kyereh arriving around the penalty spot and he slots through a couple of bodies to give the - as it stands - Bundesliga leaders the lead with his third goal in as many games.

First official effort from the visitors as Gregoritsch meets a cross from the left but he heads over.

DANGER FROM FREIBURG!

A long ball over the top finds Kyereh in behind and he knocks it past the out-rushing Christensen. He's forced wide so opts to cross instead of go for goal, but Gregoritsch can only find the side netting at the far post. It all may have been for nothing anyway with Kyereh probably offside.

300 UP FOR GINTER

Freiburg’s Ginter makes his 300th Bundesliga appearance today (154 for Gladbach, 79 for Freiburg and 67 for Dortmund). He's the second-youngest player in the 21st century to reach 300 Bundesliga games (at 28 years, 263 days) after Gonzalo Castro in 2016 (28 years, 226 days). 

FREIBURG TEAM NEWS

If it ain't broken... Freiburg start with the same XI for the sixth fixture in a row after Michael Gregoritsch recovered from the bruised pelvis that forced him off in the first half against Nantes on Thursday. However, coach Christian Streich is missing today as he remains in isolation. Assistant Lars Voßler will be in charge of things on the touchline - the third time he's deputised for Streich in a Bundesliga game.

HERTHA TEAM NEWS

Coach Sandro Schwarz makes two changes to his side from last weekend's 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim as the Berliners go in search of a first home win of the season. Augustin Rogel makes his first start with Filip Uremovic injured, while Stevan Jovetic gets the nod over Wilfried Kanga in the usually settled front three.

BIG GAME AHEAD !

Welcome one and all as the Bundesliga's super Sunday continues. This afternoon's game pits high-flying Freiburg, who are looking to take provisional pole position here, against a Hertha team who could really do with a win on home soil to push themselves away from the relegation zone.
