Result: Werder Bremen earn late Hannover win

Two late goals from Nils Petersen give Werder Bremen a 2-0 win at home to Hannover in the Bundesliga.

Two late goals from Nils Petersen have given Werder Bremen a 2-0 win at home to Hannover in the Bundesliga.

The home side were dominant in the first half and they could have taken an early lead when Assani Lukimya-Mulongoti's header came back off the crossbar.

Zlatko Junuzovic and Petersen both missed decent opportunities for Bremen as they lacked a clinical touch in front of goal.

Hannover could have taken the lead against the run of play towards the end of the half, but Mame Biram Diouf could only fire his shot straight at goalkeeper Sebastian Mielitz.

An evenly-matched second half saw Lukimya-Mulongoti's effort loop narrowly over the bar before Sokratis Papastathopoulos had his header cleared off the line.

With the game looking like it would end all square, Petersen smashed in Eljero Elia's cross in the 86th minute to put Bremen ahead.

The striker then added a second minutes later with a volley to wrap up the win for his side.
