Bottom-dwelling Hannover stun Gladbach in Bundesliga clash
FRANKFURT, Germany -- Last-place Hannover gave itself a glimmer of hope by beating Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-0 in the Bundesliga on Friday.
The defeat dented Moenchengladbach's hopes of securing a place in the Champions League next season as it dropped to fifth provisionally.
Waldemar Anton and Artur Sobiech scored in the second half as Hannover earned its first home win after seven matches and gave interim coach Daniel Stendel his first three points. Stendel has a draw and a win in two matches.
But Hannover remains at least nine points away from safety, with four matches remaining. The club could have been relegated this weekend with a loss.
Anton volleyed in a cross from Noah-Joel Sarenren-Bazee in the 49th and Sobiech completed the win by tapping in a rebound from the post from Kenan Karaman's shot in the 60th.
