ANNOUNCER: Let's take a look at how it unfolded at the Weser Stadium. 39th minute, no score. And it's Max Kruse. A beautiful ball to Fin Bartels, who ships Michael Esser and puts Werder Bremen up 1 to 0. That duo would be very much involved again today.
55th minute-- Hannover, the bad turnover at the halfway line, and Philipp Bargfrede is in. Slots it to a wide open Kruse, who one-times a left-footed shot into the upper corner. Terrific finish. And it's 2-0 for Werder Bremen.
And they weren't done. Four minutes later, Bartels to Kruse on the right. Nice cutback. This one deflects in off of Esser. He's got two. Werder Bremen with three, and they are in complete command of this one.
78th minute-- more from Bartels to Kruse. And he puts it home, far corner. Gets his hat trick. Bremen Kruse--
