Bundesliga Wrap

Braunschweig 3-0 Hannover

Bottom of the log Braunschweig stunned a ten-man Hannover side to a 3-0 victory on home soil, but the win had no impact on their league standings. 

Andre Hoffmann’s dismissal on the hour mark didn’t have much of an effect as it was already one-way traffic from the first minute. 

The home side broke the deadlock as early as the 14th minute when Dominick Kumbela was spotted in the right place at the right time to pounce on the rebound inside the box and fire home for the opener. 

Seven minutes later and Braunschweig’s lead was doubled through a stunning strike. Havard Nielsen latched onto a precise through ball from Benjamin Kessel to unleash an unstoppable shot into the bottom right corner from the edge of the area.

Hoffman was then flash a red card on 62 minutes for a horrid tackle as the hosts managed to wrap up a highly impressive win in the final minute of play. 

Karim Bellarabi provided Jan Hochscheidt with a nice pass inside the box, and it allowed him to finish with a precise effort into the bottom left corner. 

Hertha Berlin 1-1 Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim needed a goal by Eugen Polanski to help salvage a 1-1 draw in the final Bundesliga match on Sunday afternoon. 

The home side snatched the lead after just 11 played when Per Skjelbred provided a ball to Sami Allagui. He fired a shot from the edge of the box and it sailed into the bottom right corner to make it 1-0. 

Eugen Polanski offered the equalizer on the half hour mark when he collected a pass and opted for a shot from 18 meters out. He hit it perfectly as the ball zoomed around the goalkeeper and ended up in the bottom left corner.

The result means the two teams will remain equal on points and stuck in the midway point of the league table.
