In a fantastic northern fight in Hannover 96, Hamburger SV dropped a three-goal lead and suffered a setback in the promotion race. Coach Daniel Dion’s team split from Lower Saxony 3: 3 (2: 0) on Easter Sunday.
After three packs from Aaron Hunt, it seemed like a clear win for HSV for a long time. Senior Hunt put HSV ahead in the 14th minute, extending the lead (34th) before the break. After Hunt’s third win, the game seemed to be over (50th).

But Hanover did not let up. Jenki Haraguchi scored a remarkable long-distance shot (56th) for the connecting goal. Marvin Duck suddenly re-energized the game with a title (68th), allowing Haraguchi to cheer the balance (84th) in the 96s.
The Hamburg team finished second with the same points SPVG crutchesford draw but, in fourth place, Holstein Kiel led by just four points – and the Keelers played less than two games.
After a break and international matches related to isolation, Hanover played again for the first time in almost a month and showed great determination by catching. Coach Kenan Gokak’s squad is in the middle of the table, and has nothing to do with promotion or dismissal this season. (dpa)
