Fresh from his Socceroos exploits, where he scored in the 3-0 win over Lebanon, Mathew Leckie was on target again in a six-goal thriller.
Leckie, in his first start for Hertha Berlin, put in an eye-catching performance for the Bundesliga side and could have added more to his account in what turned out to be a memorable night for the hosts.
Twice Hertha went two goals down, and twice they fought back for a 3-3 result with Hoffenheim.
The visitors were 3-1 and cruising 19 minutes from time when the Australian slid in to tap home . Valentino Lazaro ensured a share of the spoils with just minutes on the clock.
