Genki Haraguchi scored in his competitive debut for Hertha Berlin as the Bundesliga side survived a second-half scare to beat fourth-division Viktoria Cologne 4-2 in the first round of the German Cup on Saturday.

Haraguchi finished off a swift counterattack in the 51st minute to put the visitors 3-0 up, only for Cologne to pull two goals back through Mike Wunderlich and Fatih Candan.
