Marvin Plattenhardt put in an imperious performance as Hertha Berlin downed Borussia Dortmund 2-1 at the Olympiastadion, helping the Old Lady close to within a point of Die Schwarzgelben, who remain third.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang restored parity soon after the restart before Plattenhardt – whose earlier cross had sailed narrowly beyond Kalou for what might have been the Ivorian’s second – stepped up to stroke home a free-kick worthy of winning any game.
