Bayer Leverkusen brought on two 16-year-olds and grew stronger with a last-minute goal from Robert Andrich to grab a 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

Spanish forward Iker Bravo became the second-youngest player to arise in the Bundesliga – after Borussia Dortmund’s Youssoufa Moukoko – when he came on in the 79th minute, just to become the third-youngest when Danish midfielder Zidan Sertdemir came on in the 86th.

Hertha looked set to hold its fifth league victory of the season through Stevan Jovetic’s goal before the interval, but the home team’s players collapsed on the field after Andrich’s last-gasp equalizer.

The Leverkusen midfielder chipped over the goalkeeper after Hertha malfunctioned to clear a free kick and wasted several good counterattacking opportunities.
