Hannover went close to climbing into the top half of the table on Matchday 21, but were ultimately pegged back to a 1-1 draw late on away to Hamburg.

Afterwards, Hannover goalscorer Iver Fossum gave his thoughts on the encounter: "It was a hard game. I think we played ok – we were leading almost the whole game and it is a bitter feeling to concede a goal in the last minute. So we are a little bit disappointed right now but one point is ok."
