Bayern Munich was not able to put away SC Freiburg and some questionable substitutions helped lead to a 2-2 draw. Robert Lewandowski was still the star of the day as he matched Gerd Müller’s record, but that goal probably would have felt better if the team walked away with three points.

Hertha Berlin climbed out of the Bundesliga’s relegation zone on Thursday with a 3-0 win over visiting Freiburg in its second game following a coronavirus outbreak at the club. Krzysztof Piatek and Peter Pekarik’s first-half goals and a late strike from Nemanja Radonjic were enough for Hertha to move ahead of Werder Bremen and Arminia Bielefeld on goal difference having played a game less.
