BVB looked to be deserved victors until shortly before the final whistle in a highly entertaining match with Hertha, having more shots (19-10) and going close to extending their lead to 3-1 before the visitors levelled with a late penalty. The goal was not entirely against the run of play: the capital club had five of their 10 shots in the final quarter of an hour. Meanwhile, BVB's run of six competitive wins on the bounce ended.

Still unbeaten: Borussia Dortmund extended their unbeaten streak under Lucien Favre to 13 competitive matches, although their six-game winning run in all competitions came to an end.

Record equalled: It is only the second time in Bundesliga history that Borussia Dortmund are unbeaten after nine matches. The last time was in 2002/03, when Matthias Sammer was in charge.

Pegged back: BVB were twice pegged back after being ahead and it was the first time in seven home competitive games under Lucien Favre that they have failed to win.

Young star: At the age of 18.59 years old, Jadon Sancho became the youngest-ever Borussia Dortmund player to score a brace in the Bundesliga. Only eight other players across the division have ever achieved the feat at a younger age. The Englishman scored for the third successive competitive match and has scored four of his five goals in those three matches. He has been involved in 11 goals this term (four goals, seven assists), making him the joint most prolific BVB player alongside Reus. Only Frankfurt's Sebastian Haller has more scorer points in the division.

Goals glut: Borussia Dortmund have scored 29 goals in the first nine matches of the season – only Eintracht Frankfurt have ever scored more at the same stage of a season (31 in 1974/75).

Forward-thinking full-back: Achraf Hakimi has now been involved in eight goals (one goal, seven assists) in his six competitive games for BVB.

First start: Having already featured five times as a substitute, Raphael Guerreiro made his first start of the season in a competitive match. (tl)
