Two goals from Rafael van der Vaart are enough for Hamburger SV to beat Fortuna Dusseldorf 2-1.

A brace from Rafael van der Vaart has seen Hamburger SV beat Fortuna Dusseldorf 2-1 in the Bundesliga.

Hamburg dominated from the off and inside the first 10 minutes Son Heung-Min had a shot saved.

In the 14th minute, however, they went ahead when Van der Vaart headed in a Marcell Jansen cross from inside the six-yard box.

Five minutes later it was 2-0 to the hosts and the Dutchman grabbed his second of the match with another close-range finish, this time with a shot.

Despite their disadvantage Dusseldorf got themselves back into the game when Dani Schahin headed in an Axel Bellinghausen free kick.

Schahin could have had another on the hour mark but his well-struck effort from outside the box was kept out.

However, they were unable to grab an equaliser as Hamburg scraped through to take the points 2-1.
