An injury-depleted Borussia Dortmund comfortably beat Hannover 3-1 at the HDI-Arena on Saturday, in the process maintaining their hold on second place in the Bundesliga.
The hosts were the better team for most of the first half and were unlucky to be denied by the post as BVB's reserves struggled to put anything together in the attacking third. But Mats Hummels broke the deadlock from a set piece shortly before half-time, and Robert Lewandowski's fantastic solo effort seven minutes after the break put the match out of Hannover's reach and completely changed the face of the game. Marco Reus added a third in injury time to cap off an impressive result for the visitors.
