BERLIN — An own goal was enough for Hertha Berlin to reclaim fourth place in the Bundesliga with a 1-0 win over Hoffenheim that left the visiting side bottom on Sunday.
Heavy snowfall forced the game's first change in the 14th minute when the white ball was switched for a red one.
On a snow-covered pitch, Hertha scored on the half-hour mark when Eugen Polanski's attempted clearance from Marvin Plattenhardt's free kick ended up going in off the post. There was no real doubt but Hawk-Eye goal-line technology confirmed that the ball crossed the line before Hoffenheim goalkeeper Oliver Baumann scooped it away.
Eduardo Vargas came closest for Hoffenheim when he headed wide from a corner late on.
Ingolstadt was hosting Darmstadt in a clash between promoted sides later.
