Hegeler and Schurrle then both had shots saved as the hosts pushed for a second goal.

It came midway through the half as Daniel Carvajal put a cross on to the head of Stefan Kiessling, who made no mistake with his finish.

The hosts' scoring was done done there, however, as Hegeler added his second with a snap-shot finish after being found by Lars Bender.

Artur Sobiech latched on to a loose ball to fire a goal back for his side, but with 20 minutes to go it was a big ask.
