Hertha Berlin stunned leaders Bayern Munich 2-0 on Friday for their first win over them in nine years that snapped the champions' unbeaten run this season and moved the Berliners joint top in the Bundesliga.

Hertha captain Vedad Ibisevic sent Manuel Neuer the wrong way to score with a 23rd minute penalty after Jerome Boateng had brought down Salomon Kalou.

Slovak forward Ondrej Duda continued his sensational form with his fifth goal of the season, firing in on the stroke of halftime.

Bayern, without injured Leon Goretzka, had their share of chances with Arjen Robben in the first half and James Rodriguez after the break but slumped to their first defeat of the season, three days after stumbling to a 1-1 draw against Augsburg.

The result lifted Hertha into second place on 13 points, level on points with Bayern. Borussia Dortmund, third on 11 points, are in action against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.
