Hannover and Nuremberg draw 3-3 in the Bundesliga in a game of two halves, with the hosts pulling back from 3-0 down.

Hannover have salvaged an unlikely point in the Bundesliga after coming from three goals down to draw 3-3 at home to Nuremberg.

The first chance of the game fell to the visitors, but Daniel Ginczek could only pick out the goalkeeper after being found by Timothy Chandler.

All the chances were falling to the hosts and Mame Biram Diouf was guilty of a miss when he directed a header wide despite being well placed.

The miss was punished on the half-hour mark when Adam Hlousek found space on the edge of the box to shoot accurately into the corner from the edge of the box.

Two goals in three minutes then saw the visitors into what was surely an unassailable lead. Josip Drmic fired high into the net before Per Nilsson dominated a corner kick to head his side 3-0 ahead.

Hannover came out much better after the break and pulled one back on the hour through Leonardo Bittencourt.

After a half of one-way traffic, Diouf got a second back with three minutes to play before he dramatically equalised in stoppage time by firing in after a corner had bobbled around in the box.
