And breathe! What a half of football that was! End-to-end stuff right from the off, as Hoffenheim took an early lead through Grillitsch's delightful chip, and dominated the opening minutes. However, they were pegged back by a sublime goal from Ismaily, who beat his man on the left and guided the ball coolly into the far corner with the outside of his boot. Poor defending from the hosts allowed Hoffenheim to restore their advantage, however, as Nordtveit nodded in a corner almost completely unchallenged! It's 2-1 to Hoffenheim at the break!
