Hannover and Mainz have played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at the AWD Arena in the Bundesliga.

Visitors Mainz pulled ahead in the 25th minute when Jan Schlaudraff's sloppy pass was collected by Nicolai Muller, who took the ball through the legs of Karim Haggui before coolly slotting home past Ron-Robert Zieler.

Muller thought that he had restored Mainz's one-goal lead in the 40th minute, but his effort was ruled out for deliberate handball.
