Borussia Dortmund claim away win against Hertha Berlin despite Mats Hummels dramatic red card.England Jordan Sancho was on target as Dortmund earn first away win under new Hertha Berlin coach.

Goals from Sancho and Thorgan Hazard gave Dortmund an early two-goal cushion, before Vladimir Darida pulled a goal back for hosts Hertha.

Mats Hummels was sent off for a second bookable offence before half-time, but Lucien Favre’s side held on.The result lifts Dortmund up to fifth in the Bundesliga table.

Former Germany and United States boss Klinsmann was appointed Hertha’s interim manager earlier this week following the sacking of Ante Covic. Hertha piled on the pressure following Hummels’ dismissal but failed to convert their second-half dominance into goals.
