Commentary

That is all for tonight folks, thanks for joining us. Goodbye!
Hertha should be proud of their efforts tonight and their fans will go home knowing they gave everything. In the end it was not enough and Bayern will now switch their attention to the Bundesliga. They are still seven points behind Borussia Dortmund ahead of their meeitng with Schalke.
Bayern book their place in the fourth round of the DFB-Pokal thanks to an injury-time winner from Coman. Hertha raced into the lead in the third minute through Mittelstadt before a brace from Gnabry put Bayern in control. Kovac's side look destined for the win inside 90 minutes before Hummels made an embarrassing error to gift Selke a goal just minutes after he stepped into the game. Eventually Coman found the winner after he headed home Lewandowski's cross, but it was a tough night for the reigning Bundesliga champions.
120' + 3' FULL-TIME - HERTHA 2-3 BAYERN.
120' + 2' Into stoppage time in Berlin, Hertha need to get the ball forward.

Javi Martínez
J. Rodríguez
Bayern München
119' Kovac attempts to waste more time by bringing on Martinez in place of Rodriguez.
117' CHANCE - Hertha's defence falls asleep for a split second and that allows Lewandowski in, but his shot is deflected and Jarstein is on hand to catch the rebound.
114' Lewandowski tries to finish the game off, but his effort hits the wall and Hertha clear their lines.
113' Bayern win a free-kick on the edge of the Hertha box and that is down to the trickery of Ribery who dances past two players before being fouled.
J. Torunarigha
O. Duda
Hertha BSC
110' Hertha boss Dardai tries one final change as Duda comes off for Torunarigha.
108' The players look tired out there now and that is to be expected. It has been a slow start to this final period and Hertha need to dig deep.
105' The short break is over and the game resumes!
Bayern have 15 minutes to hang on thanks to Coman's brave header in the 98th minute. Hertha have already shown they can come back from behind, can they do it again?
105' HALF-TIME - HERTHA 2-3 BAYERN.
105' OVER! Bayern nearly grab a two-goal cushion but Hummels cannot keep his shot down. The centre-back made his way to the edge of the box before blasting his shot narrowly over the crossbar.
F. Lustenberger
P. Skjelbred
Hertha BSC
103' Another change for Hertha, Skjelbred comes off and on in his place is Lustenberger.
K. Coman
Goal
Bayern München
98' GOAAAALLLL Hertha 2-3 Bayern - The Bavarians strike first in stoppage time after their hard work finally pays off. Hertha decided to sit back in their own box and were punished eventually. Ribery's cross was cleared towards Lewandowski but the striker stayed alert and looped the ball to the back post where Coman was waiting to head home in front of a crowd of Hertha players.
R. Lewandowski
Assist
Bayern München
98' Lewandowski deserves plenty of credit for his determination there. His cross looked rushed at first but the speed caught Hertha off guard and Coman produced the finish at the back post.
95' Both sets of players look nervous at the minute and we have had very little action since extra time started.
92' Hertha need to be careful for the remainder of the game becuase they have started to enter their shell. They are inviting Bayern onto them and that is a dangerous ploy!
90' We are back underway!
Neither side manage to find a winner after another action-packed half in Berlin. Gnabry's goal looked like it would be enough but, his second goal of the game was cancelled out by Selke's neat finish from that shocking error from Hummels.
90' + 2' END OF 90 MINUTES: HERTHA 2-2 BAYERN.
90' + 1' Nothing comes of that set piece and it looks like we are set for extra time.
90' Bayern win a corner...
F. Ribéry
S. Gnabry
Bayern München
89' Late change for Bayern sees Ribery replace two-goal hero Gnabry.
89' CHANCE! Bayern work their way into the Hertha box and they are forced to bide their time before Alaba can cross. He hangs it up in the air for Coman but his volley is saved by Jarstein.
86' While they have not had too many chances, Hertha have scored two goals from just three shots on target. Superb finishing from the home side.
84' Bayern may not get a better chance than that one from Rodriguez. That was the perfect cross for Lewandowski to attack but the former Borussia Dortmund man was behind the play at the time.
L. Klünter
S. Kalou
Hertha BSC
82' Kalou has endured a quiet night and he is now replaced by Klunter for the final eight minutes.
81' CHANCE!!!! Bayern create a superb chance, but Rodriguez scuffs his lines at the last second. Alaba found a way around the Hertha defence and he played in the playmaker, but he lost his balance and volleyed past the far post.
79' Bayer creep in behind the Hertha defence and Gnabry tries to cut the ball back for his team-mates but he can only produce a tame effort and his pass is intercepted by Jarstein.
77' Bayern have still not given Lewandowski enough chances to score tonight and they have 13 minutes to try and change that.
75' Hertha are now being forced back into their own half as Bayern settle down after that Hummels error.
73' Nervous moment for Jarstein has he comes for a cross before deciding to leave it at the last second. Bayern then get to the ball with Goretzka but his cross cannot find another Bayern shirt.
69' As expected, that goal has given Hertha a lease of life and they are now flying forward with more conviction!
D. Selke
Goal
Hertha BSC
67' GOAAAALLLL Hertha 2-2 Bayern - Selke changes the game just minutes after coming off the bench as he taps home from a tight angle. The striker was gifted the opportunity by Hummels who got his bearings all wrong in defence. A long ball caused him to panic and his header back to Ulreich was far too short and Selke bundled it home. 
65' Alaba has seen so much of the ball in this game and he wins his team another corner as his cross is blocked at close range.
D. Selke
V. Ibišević
Hertha BSC
64' Ibisevic has barely had a kick tonight and he is now replaced by Selke.
60' CHANCE! Bayern work the ball down the right wing to Kimmich and he decides to cross early towards Lewandowski at the near post. The striker slides in to try and tap home, but he is inches away from the ball as Jarstein gathers on the floor.
59' Bayern have totally dominated this second half and they will be confident of adding a third goal soon enough.
57' Alaba goes down in the box after a 50/50 battle but the referee waves away the penalty appeals and gives a corner.
55' Bayern burst down the left wing with Alaba but his cross flies behind all of his team-mates. If that move had come off then Hertha were in serious trouble.
53' Hertha do enough to clear the cross, but they look fragile at present after that early goal from Bayern at the start of the second half.
52' Bayern look to have found their rhythm here as they win another corner just seconds after seeing a first cleared away...
J. Rodríguez
Assist
Bayern München
49' Rodriguez looked a threat in the first 45 minutes, and he has shown his class with a superb pass that teed up Gnabry. 
S. Gnabry
Goal
Bayern München
49' GOAALLLLL Hertha 1-2 Bayern - Gnabry grabs his second goal of the game thanks to a quick counter from the visitors. Rodriguez found space in midfield before playing his team-mate into the channel on the edge of the box. Gnabry stayed onside and used his superior speed to get to the ball before firing across goal and past Jarstein.
48' We have had a scrappy start to the second half with a number of free-kicks given to either side.
46' We are back underway in Berlin!
Hertha need to do more in midfield in the second 45 minutes, with Grujic and Skjelbred struggling to contain Gnabry, Rodriguez and Thiago. Bayern did go close on another occasion through the Colombian but they need to give Lewandowski more service if they are to win this evening.
No stoppage time is given at the end of the 45 minutes and that tells you how tame the first half became in the end. We enjoyed a sensational start at first as Hertha opened the scoring thanks to Mittelstadt's powerful drive. Bayern responded immediately thanks to Gnabry's half volley, but the action has dried up since then.
45' HALF-TIME - HERTHA 1-1 BAYERN. 
43' OVER! Coman drives towards the byline before crossing into the box. Hertha clear but only as far as Rodriguez but the Colombia international puts too much power on his shot and a goal kick is awarded.
40' Five minutes remaining of the first half and Hertha have yet to create another chance since their opening goal.
38' Bayern plead for a penalty as Hummels goes down, but nothing is given. The centre-back retrieved the ball with his back to goal and as he turned, he fell over but the officials are having none of it.
36' Nothing comes of that set piece as Rodriguez's cross is far too high for anyone to attack in a red shirt.
34' Hertha concede a free-kick on the edge of their own box..Thiago and Rodriguez are stood over it for Bayern!
31' Hertha are starting to win more of the midfield duals, but they are not creating enough as he tick past the half hour mark.
29' For the first time in the game we are starting to see both teams cancel each other out. 
26' SAVE! Gnabry nearly scores his second of the night after another gutsy run on the edge of the box. The winger turned inside onto his left foot and aimed for the near post but Jarstein got down low and stopped the effort.
24' Alaba is finding plenty of space down the left wing but he is struggling to find Coman in a good position as he is being marked tightly by the home defence.
22' The Hertha fans continue to get behind their team but they are currently losing the midfield battle at present.
20' Bayern win another corner and Hummels gets up first to try and score, but he slices his effort just past the post. That is another warning sign for the home side.
18' Kovac's troops have dominated the last 10 minutes of play but they have not tested Jarstein since the Gnabry goal.
16' Bayern win a corner after Hummels has a shot deflected but the set piece comes to nothing.
15' This game is being played at a relentless pace and Bayern are looking very dangerous down the flanks.
13' Bayern win a free-kick through Lewandowski but it has not gone down too well with the home crowd. 
11' CHANCE! Bayern try to attack down the right wing and it nearly pays off as Thiago picks out Lewandowski. However, the Poland international is leaning back as he meets the ball and he heads wide of the far post.
10' Not even 10 minutes in and we already have two goals, the home fans are well up for this and we could be in for a cracker.
S. Gnabry
Goal
Bayern München
7' GOAAALLLLL Hertha 1-1 Bayern! What a response from the visitors as Gnabry levels proceedings in Berlin. Hertha looked to have the situation under control but a poor clearance at the back allowed the ball to trickle into the path of Gnabry. The former Arsenal man timed his run to perfection before smashing the ball past Jarstein.
5' Kovac's men could not have made a worst start and they need to regroup here if they are to win this contest.
S. Kalou
Assist
Hertha BSC
4' Hertha broke quickly and it was Kalou's pass that gave the home side a chance to score. Great work from the former Chelsea man!
M. Mittelstädt
Goal
Hertha BSC
3' GOAAALLLLLLL Hertha 1-0 Bayern 0 - Hertha make a superb start on home soil as Mittelstadt opens the scoring inside the first few minutes. He latched onto a throughball from Kalou before picking his spot past Ulreich. A low shot found a way past the keeper and Bayern have got off to a nightmare start.
L. Goretzka
Yellow Card
Bayern München
3' Goretzka tries to make his way down the pitch but he goes down too easily and he is going to be carded for a dive.
1' We are underway in Berlin!

Bayern have now lost four league matches – as many as they suffered in the whole of last season. One of them came against Hertha back in September so revenge will be on the Bavarians’ mind tonight.
Tonight’s encounter is a third-round tie in the German Cup and Hertha will be looking to bounce back after their defeat to Wolfsburg. Their last win came against Nurnberg on January 20, while Bayern were also beaten in their last league outing. A 3-1 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen has put more pressure on Niko Kovac ahead of kick off.
Good evening and welcome to tonight’s live coverage of the DFB Pokal clash between Hertha Berlin and Bayern Munich at the Olympiastadion.
