The Ghana international scored the winner for the Eagles who bounced back from a goal deficit to seal maximum points at the Olympiastadion

Kevin-Prince Boateng was on target in Eintracht Frankfurt’s 2-1 win over Hertha Berlin in Sunday’s German Bundesliga encounter.

The 30-year-old helped Niko Kovac’s men secure victory against the Blue-Whites as they extended their impressive away form, unbeaten in four consecutive games on the road.

Boateng increased his tally to three goals in 14 league appearances this season as the Eagles recovered from their 1-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen last weekend.

Davie Selke got Hertha Berlin to a fine start with a goal in the 15th minute, off Matthew Leckie's assist.

11 minutes later, a well-taken corner kick from Jetro Willems assisted Marius Wolf's stunning strike that drew both sides levelled into the break.

Niko Kovac’s men moved up to the eighth spot in the German top-flight log with 22 points from 14 games and they welcome Bayern Munich for their next league fixture on Saturday
