The Italian feels a draw with Hertha Berlin was a fair result even if Robert Lewandowski had to hit a 96th minute leveller to salvage a point

Carlo Ancelotti is adamant Bayern Munich deserved their last-gasp equaliser against Hertha Berlin irrespective of the controversial nature of the goal.

Bayern appeared to be on their way to a 1-0 defeat in the German capital following Vedad Ibisevic's first-half strike, only for Robert Lewandowski to level the scoring in the sixth minute of stoppage time - with referee Patrick Ittrich having allocated five minutes of additional play.

Lewandowski makes Bundesliga history

Hertha were furious after conceding the late goal, but Ancelotti feels Bayern more than deserved their equaliser.

"We knew that a difficult game awaited us," Ancelotti said at a news conference. "Hertha put in a very good performance in the first half and put in a lot of effort.

Lewa comes to Bayern's rescue

"Things were different after the break, though. We put a lot of pressure on them.

"I think we deserved our goal. In the end, a draw was a fair result."

Bayern are now eight points clear of RB Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga table.
