Mainz beats Hannover 2-0 in Bundesliga, stays in contention for a slot in the Europa League

  • Print

FRANKFURT - Mainz used two rare opportunities to beat Hannover 2-0 in a Bundesliga match on Friday and stay in competition for a place in the Europa League next season.

Yunus Malli beat the offside trap on a pass from Nicolai Mueller in the 51st minute to open the scoring. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting finished off a quick counterattack in injury time to seal the victory. Niki Zimling squared the ball to Choupo-Moting at the far post and the substitute forward tapped it in from close range.

Neither team created any real opportunities in the first half. Mainz made the most of the few it had after the break.

Hannover dropped to its 10th defeat away from home.
