Hannover humbled by clinical Köln

Hannover 96 remain third in the Bundesliga after a 4-0 defeat by 1. FC Köln, courtesy of strikes from Petit, Lukas Podolski and two late goals from Milivoje Novakovič.

Hannover 96 missed the chance to leapfrog Bayer 04 Leverkusen into second place in the Bundesliga as they slumped to a 4-0 reverse at mid-table 1. FC Köln.

Two points behind Leverkusen following three successive league victories, Hannover's hopes of another success decreased from the moment Petit fired in a 36th-minute free-kick.

Lukas Podolski burst through the visiting defence and calmly slotted in his 11th goal of the season to make it 2-0 on the hour, before Milivoje Novakovič matched his strike partner's tally with two close-range finishes in the final 11 minutes.
