Hannover top the Bundesliga after easy 2-0 win over Hamburg
Promoted Hannover 96 went top of the Bundesliga on Friday, as they maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-0 home win over Hamburg SV.
After a frustrating opening period for the hosts, the deadlock was broken shortly after the break when Austrian forward Martin Harnik struck from close range.
Hamburg attempted a mini-revival, but their hopes were dashed when substitute and new signing Ihlas Bebou of Togo scored an easy tap-in for his first goal for Hannover with less than 10 minutes remaining.
The win means that Andre Breitenreiter's men lead the league standings on 10 points.
