The hosts opened the score very quickly and with a lot of luck. The ball shot from a free kick to the head of Diekmeier was found in the “wall” an unexpected traectorie with no possibility of intervention for the goalkeeper Drobny, 1-0. A quarter of an hour was balanced then the defending of the guests was “Checkmate” in a prolonged attack action initiated by Ballack, followed by Schurrle and scored by Bender, 2-0.
The guest are not assigned, Jansen was in two rows in favorable situation but it hasty and miss. Unexpectedly low of disabled guests. On a free kick from about 30 meters from the gate of Leno, Aogo in the square lifted the ball and forgotten Westermann free scored by head, 1-2. While the hosts have gone about the game, momentum and attacked guests marked by Jansen, but the referee canceled the goal for a reason known only by him or to the mass of experts led by former international referee Markus Merk is not finding an explanation plausible.
After resumption, Hamburg continued to attack, appreciating that the hosts have problems to play the game. Liable to defensive, Leverkusen gave in again in 58 minute. Tore open on the edge of the square to Jansen and he sent the ball with a healthy percent left corner of the goal defended by Leno, 2-2. Last half hour away was trained as numerous opportunities to both gates, but the result (fair) has remained unchanged.
