Pantovic picks out Bonga, who sends his header wide.
What an introduction that would have been! BONGA ON Tarsis Bonga makes his Bundesliga debut, with the industrious Locadia making way. NO END PRODUCT Hertha have the chance to break with Lee, but he can't quite pull away in time and Bochum get men back to cover. The eventual cross is blocked. That just about sums up Hertha's display in the second half. FRESH LEGS Holtmann's been a constant outlet and willing runner for Bochum, but he can't keep it up any longer, so on comes Antwi-Adjei. Richter and Bjorkan are on for the hosts, who've gone a bit flat in attack.
Half-time SAFETY FIRST Riemann has Jovetic running straight at him after being played into danger by a teammate on the edge of his own six-yard box. The Bochum stopper is taking no chances, and hoofs clear. That could have been embarrassing for the visiting defence. SPECULATIVE SHOTS The goal aside, we've yet to witness a clear-cut chance. Deflected efforts have been the order of the day, Maolida with the latest such attempt.

28km/h2. Marc-Oliver Kempf 32. 81km/h3. Takuma Asano 32. 72km/h WING MEN Bochum find space on the left-hand side on this occassion, with Leitsch. He drives a low cross into the danger zone, but Schwolow beats it clear. HALF CHANCE Bochum respond as Locadia connects with Holtmann's deflected cross, but Schwolow makes an easy save. Everything's going through Holtmann. HERTHA LEAD! And there it is. Hertha win a free-kick on the left-hand side, midway through the Bochum half. Jovetic swings it in towards the six-yard-box, where Belfodil glances a header into the far bottom corner. There's a quick VAR review for offside, but it stands. Situation Goal Review Offside? Decision Goal HERTHA PROMISE Maolida stands up his marker and tries to find Jovetic, who can't quite bring the pass under wraps.
Hertha looking the more likely... THE BOCHUMER MESSI Nice play from Holtmann out on the Bochum right. He holds the ball up, before whipping over a teasing back-post cross. Locadia's lurking, but he's crowded out and the flag goes up for offside anyway. He has a lovely left foot, Holtmann. ON THE VOLLEY! Ascacibar connects with a cross, but sends his attempted volley comfortably over Riemann's goal. Hertha certainly the more active of the two sides. Bochum nowhere near as purposeful as they are on their own patch.
JOVETIC! Bochum have done a good job of keeping Jovetic quiet for the most part, but the Hertha striker gets a sniff here. He drives inside and bends goalwards, his shot catching a Bochum player on its way into the grateful hands of Riemann. BOCHUM TAKING CHARGE The visitors have been much improved since the start of the second half. Thomas Reis' double change has made all the difference. LEE DEBUT South Korea international winger Dongjun Lee, fresh from helping his country qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, makes his Bundesliga debut.
Hertha Berlin - VfL Bochum 1848 | Season 2021/2022 | BundesligaLive News Line-ups Stats FULL-TIME: HERTHA 1-1 BOCHUM Ascacibar concedes a late corner, but Hertha force the Bochum players further and further away from Schwolow's goal, before the whistle sounds on a 1-1 draw. A fair result, it has to be said.
Hertha's No. 1 must be wishing the ground would Schwolow him up after that. Kick-off! HALF-TIME: HERTHA 1-0 BOCHUM Belfodil's second Bundesliga goal of the season is the difference at half-time. Hertha have shaded proceedings, and will climb above Bochum into 11th, if they can hold out for a fifth win of the campaign. Bochum need to get the ball into Locadia, who's had precious little to feed on in the Hertha box.
The Hertha winter transfer window signing scored 11 times in 28 games for Ulsan Hyundai across the 2021 K League 1 season. LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN? That was Sebastian Polter's seventh Bundesliga goal of the current campagn. That makes him the second highest scoring German national in this season's division, after Serge Gnabry (10). Is it time Germany coach Hansi Flick takes a look? He could certainly use an out-and-out striker... WE HAVE AN EQUALISER! Bochum hit back with their first meaningful attempt on goal. Schwolow makes a right meal of his attempt to punch clear Locadia's stinging shot on the turn. Diving one way, he only succeeds in batting it the other and straight into the path of half-time substitute Sebastian Polter, who slots into the unguarded net.
