Result: Hannover climb into Bundesliga top three with FC Koln win

Hannover climb to third in the Bundesliga table after an early Joselu goal secures a 1-0 win against FC Koln.

Hannover have climbed to third in the Bundesliga table after seeing off FC Koln 1-0 in tonight's league match at the HDI Arena.

The deadlock was broken early on by the home side when Joselu poked the ball home in the fifth minute.

Following this setback, the visitors strove to pull a goal back as quickly as possible, but Yuya Osako and Slawomir Peszko weren't able to make the most of their efforts.

Marcelo then had another great chance for Hannover, latching on to Leonardo Bittencourt's free kick, but his finish flew over.

Ceyhun Gulselam constantly proved a thorn in Koln's side, threatening with dangerous efforts time and time again.

The away side were more dangerous in the second half, as Kevin Vogt saw his 48th minute shot blocked, while Marcel Risse and Simon Zoller also caused trouble.

However, Hannover held on to secure the win and all three points to climb into the top three.

FC Koln, meanwhile, sit in ninth place.
