The 32-year-old’s effort in the second half was enough to salvage a point for the Old Lady at the Olympiastadion

Salomon Kalou was on target as Hertha Berlin settled for a 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim in Saturday’s German Bundesliga tie.

The Cote d’Ivoire international extended his tally to eight goals in the top-flight this season to help Pal Dardai’s men avoid defeat.

Andrej Kramaric fired Hoffenheim ahead from the penalty spot in the 38th minute as Julian Nagelsmann's charges headed into the break leading.

After the restart, Kalou grabbed an equaliser for the hosts after he converted Valentino Lazaro’s cross in the 58th minute.

The former Chelsea forward was replaced by Maximilian Mittelstadt late in the game as the Old Lady settled for their third successive draw in the league.

Hertha Berlin will be aiming to secure their first win in 2018 when they visit Bayer Leverkusen for their next league fixture on February 10.

They are placed 10th in the log with 27 points from 21 games so far.
