Hannover beats Bremen to all but seal Bundesliga survival
HANNOVER, Germany (AP) Hannover defeated Werder Bremen 2-1 to end its five-game losing streak and all but secure Bundesliga survival on Friday.
But Hannover managed to hold on to move nine points clear of the relegation zone and 15 clear of Cologne in a direct relegation place with five games left.
Bremen coach Florian Kohfeldt, who extended his contract to 2021 during the week, suffered his first defeat in six games. His side stayed ahead of Hannover by a point.
