Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic left with black eye after goal for Hertha Berlin as they hold Bayern Munich to a draw
- Marko Grujic put Hertha Berlin 2-1 up with a fine goal against Bayern Munich
- But the midfielder clashed heads with Benjamin Pavard in the build-up
- The Liverpool loanee later conceded a penalty as Hertha drew 2-2 at Bayern
The midfielder clattered heads with Bayern defender Benjamin Pavard as he won an aerial challenge that started the move for his goal, where he ended up rounding Manuel Neuer and passing into an empty net to put his side 2-1 ahead.
He required treatment soon after scoring and after the match was over, Grujic showed off the result of his clash of heads in the shape of a shiny black eye.

Grujic’s night on the pitch did have another downside as he later conceded a VAR-checked penalty by pulling Robert Lewandowski’s shirt.
The Poland striker duly scored from the spot in the 60th minute but a draw away at Bayern is still a respectable result for Grujic’s side.
The 23-year-old is back in Berlin for a second straight season-loan with Liverpool’s midfield currently too packed for him to have regular first-team football.

Last season, he played 23 times for Hertha and scored five goals.
The Serbia international was Jurgen Klopp’s first full signing as Liverpool manager in a £4.5m deal from Partizan Belgrade in January 2016.
Grujic has played 14 times for Liverpool since arriving at Anfield.
