Bundesliga Wrap: More misery for Hannover, Mainz hold off Bremen

24 November 2013 20:29

Hannover's dismal start to the season continued as their winless run was extended to seven games with a 3-1 defeat to Hamburg on Sunday.

Mirko Slomka's men went ahead just before the half-hour mark as Szabolcs Hustzi capitalised on a lapse in concentration in the Hamburg defence to send the ball beyond goalkeeper Rene Adler.

But the visitors were only in front for three minutes at the Imtech Arena, as Milan Badelj ended a 29-match barren spell with a sensational volley to equalise.

And Hamburg were ahead one minute after the interval, when Heiko Westermann's cross from the right was headed home by Maximilian Beister.

Hakan Calhanoglu sealed all three points for Hamburg six minutes from time, driving an effort across goal and beyond Ron-Robert Zieler into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.

The result leaves Hannover 13th, just three points clear of the relegation play-off position, while Hamburg leapfrog their opponents into 11th.

In the day's other match, Mainz survived a late Werder Bremen fightback to triumph 3-2 and record back-to-back victories for the first time since opening the season with three consecutive wins.

Nicolai Muller put the visitors in front in the seventh minute at the Weserstadion, firing home a left-footed strike from 25 yards

Shinji Okazaki then put Mainz in a commanding position with a goal in each half - both from close range - before the Bremen resurgence began.

Eljero Elia pulled a goal back in the 85th minute and Franco Di Santo netted a second in the dying moments. But it was too little, too late for Bremen, who have just one win from their last seven fixtures.
