Robert Lewandowski scored in the sixth minute of stoppage time to deny Hertha Berlin a hard-fought win in the Bundesliga

Hertha Berlin coach Pal Dardai claims Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich benefited from the "Bayern bonus" in rescuing a 1-1 draw in the German capital on Saturday.

Robert Lewandowski levelled with the last kick of the game to earn a point following a below-par display from the defending champions.

However, that goal came after the allotted five minutes of stoppage time had elapsed, prompting angry clashes between the two sets of players.

And Dardai says his team had every right to feel aggrieved.

"First of all, I have to say that my team were outstanding," he told Sky. "We also had plenty of opportunities to score the second goal, but we did not manage to do it.

"Unfortunately there was so much stoppage time. That is the Bayern bonus.

"It's not a cup game, we do not play for 120 minutes. Sorry, everyone can be offended - after five minutes the whistle should be blown."

Midfielder Sebastian Langkamp added: "We played the game of our lives.

"It is probably an unwritten rule that nobody can win against them."

Vedad Ibisevic had fired Hertha in front with the club's first goal against Bayern since March 2014.
