Hertha Berlin won 2-1 at defending champion Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Robert Lewandowski pulled one back in the 88th, but was unable to prevent Dortmund’s first home defeat in 19 games.

Egyptian striker Mohamed Zidan, who is struggling to play regular first-team football, started on the bench before being introduced in the 73rdminute, replacing Sven Bender.

Dortmund, who made a disappointing start to the season, lie tenth in the Bundesliga table with seven points, five behind leaders Bayern Munich after five matches.
