Bremen get the better of Hannover

Santiago García scored four minutes from time as SV Werder Bremen fought back to edge Hannover 96 3-2 and leapfrog their opponents into eighth spot in the Bundesliga.

Santiago García struck a late winner as SV Werder Bremen overcame Hannover 96 3-2 to leapfrog their rivals into eighth spot in the Bundesliga, after FC Augsburg had seen off 1. FSV Mainz 05 2-1.

Without a win in their four previous league outings, Bremen fell behind on 20 minutes when Szabolcs Huszti struck from the penalty spot. Aaron Hunt responded shortly afterwards, however, also via a spot kick, and Cedric Makiadi then put the hosts in front.

Hiroki Sakai equalised for Hannover close to half-time, but just as it seemed no further goals would be added, García sealed the result for Bremen to lift them two points above their opponents.

Hannover now lie 11th, level with both the teams in action in Sunday's early game. Augsburg won that courtesy of a goal from André Hahn either side of the interval as the Bavarian outfit ended a five-game league sequence without a victory. Substitute Eric Choupo-Moting reduced the deficit close to the hour mark, but Mainz ended the game with ten men after goalkeeper Christian Wetklo was dismissed late on.
