Hamburg wins, Leverkunse held to draw

Son Heung-min and Artjoms Rudnevs scored two goals each for Hamburger SV to stun defending champion Borussia Dortmund 4-1 in a Bundesliga match Saturday that both teams finished with 10 men.

Robert Lewandowski and Hamburg\’s Jeffrey Bruma were sent off in separate incidents.

Hosts Dortmund stayed second because Bayer Leverkusen was held to a 3-3 draw at Borussia Moenchengladbach. Leverkusen trailed twice before letting a 3-2 lead slip away.

Dortmund is one point ahead of Leverkusen but 12 behind Bayern Munich, which hosted Schalke in the late match.

Stuttgart fell to its fifth straight loss in a 4-1 defeat at home to Werder Bremen, Wolfsburg won 1-0 at last-place Greuther Fuerth, Hannover edged Hoffenheim 1-0 and Eintracht Frankfurt blew a chance to move up to third when it was held to a 0-0 draw at home by Nuremberg.

Lewandowski scored his 14th goal of the season in the 17th minute but was sent off in the 31st after taking a wild volley swing and hitting Hamburg\’s Per Ciljan Skjelbred.

After the foul, Hamburg\’s Rafael van der Vaart got into a push-and-shove altercation with Sebastian Kehl but escaped with a yellow card. He drew the ire of Dortmund fans, however, and was hit on the head with an object thrown from the stands when he was taking a corner. Van der Vaart was unhurt.

Bruma was sent off in the 59th for a professional foul on Marco Reus but Dortmund was unable to mount a comeback and fell to its third home loss of the season. Hamburg also won the home leg 3-2 to snap Dortmund\’s 31-match unbeaten run over two seasons.

\”We took a long time to get into the match,\” said Dortmund\’s coach Juergen Klopp, who reshuffled his lineup ahead of the Champions League match at Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.

\”Then we scored but conceded in the very next minute. They went ahead, our guy got the red card … we still had some good chances but everything went against us today,\” Klopp said.

Lewandowski exploited an error from Heiko Westermann to score through goalkeeper Rene Adler\’s legs, but Hamburg struck right back one minute later when Dennis Aogo sent a perfect low cross for Rudnevs to knock into the net from close range.

Son got his first in the 26h with a spectacular shot inside the far post from the right side of the penalty area.

After the break, Rudnevs headed in a cross from Van der Vaart and Son completed the victory by easily stroking in a pinpoint pass from Marcell Jansen at the far post.

Patrick Herrmann\’s header from close range in the 86th allowed Moenchengladbach to clinch a point against Leverkusen, which remained unbeaten in Moenchengladbach since 1989.

The host team led twice — scoring twice against the run of play — but Leverkusen fought back to take a 3-2 lead on Andre Schuerrle\’s goal in the 65th, only to see Herrmann level the score.

Martin Stranz put the hosts ahead with a header in the 44th, before Sydney Sam tied the match. Luuk de Jong\’s diving header restored \’Gladbach\’s lead, but Stefan Kiessling made it 2-2 with his 100th Bundesliga goal. Kiessling now also has 14 goals this season.

Stuttgart\’s crisis deepened as it fell to 14th place.

Mehmet Ekici scored two goals and Aaron Hunt and Kevin de Bruyne added the others. Ibrahima Traore briefly revived Stuttgart\’s hopes with his equalizer.

In Frankfurt, police clashed with Nuremberg fans outside the stadium as security was stepped up for the match after reports that Nuremberg fans would try to sneak in flares. Hundreds of Nuremberg fans were late entering the stadium because of stricter controls.

Hoffenheim\’s new Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes was at fault in the 8th minute as Mame Diouf headed in the winner for Hannover.

Bas Dost scored in the 23rd for Wolfsburg to beat Greuther Fuerth.
