Julian Schieber scored the second of two injury-time goals to give Hertha Berlin a dramatic 2-1 win over promoted Freiburg in their opening Bundesliga game of the season Sunday.
Freiburg captain Nicolas Hoefler thought he'd salvaged a draw for his side on its return to the Bundesliga after one season away when he scored with a header from a corner in the 93rd minute.
But there was still time for Schieber's winner from a difficult angle after Genki Haraguchi's initial effort was blocked.
Vladimir Darida opened the scoring against his former side in the 61st. Darida, who joined Hertha after Freiburg's relegation in 2015, fired inside the right post after some clever interplay between Haraguchi and Vedad Ibisevic.
High temperatures played a role as both sides struggled for chances.
