Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Hannover will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Kreuze - Tschiffely, Straka, Rotenhan, Eckhoff - Muschalek, von Sparr, Pirol, Deeken - Ahrberg, Zewe.

After 9 minutes, Hannover's Julius Zewe made his way through the middle and nonchalantly placed the ball out of the keeper's reach, putting the visitors up 0 - 1. Kjeld Ahrberg came close to extending the visitors' lead when he found himself completely unmarked in front of the goal after a pass through the middle, but his attempted chip over Albert Ziesemann just kept rising and landed in the relieved crowd. The away team's Kjeld Ahrberg took advantage of a mistake on the home side's right after 23 minutes increasing Hannover's lead to 0 - 2. Maybe Arnd Ziller should join the aquatics team instead. He went down dramatically after 24 minutes, crying out with agony as he fell. The referee was not impressed, though, and showed him a yellow for diving. 0 - 2 was the halftime score. This part of the game was a standoff between the teams as far as possession.

After 66 minutes, Mark Rotberg of Saarland had a good opportunity to reduce the away team's lead with a chance created through the middle, but he scuffed the ball harmlessly past the post. After 82 minutes Saarland's Luka Obertrave contracted a slight foot injury, but said he could still finish the game. Hannover's Johannes Straka scored the 0 - 3 goal by shooting straight and true from a long distance, leaving the opponent’s keeper to trudge into the net to pick up the ball. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Hannover lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. After 87 minutes, Rafael Wildemann of Saarland had a good opportunity to reduce the away team's lead with a chance created through the middle, but he scuffed the ball harmlessly past the post. Arnd Ziller of Saarland got sent off for kicking the ball after the whistle, a completely uncalled for move, earning him his second yellow card of the game. The home crowd was briefly mollified when Rafael Wildemann reduced the lead to 1 - 3 after a brilliant midfield give-and-go through the middle. Saarland reduced the lead to 2 - 3 after 90 minutes when Luka Obertrave got the best of a lazy ball floated in from the left side. With 90 minutes played, Hannover's Kjeld Ahrberg pulled up limping after a savage, cowardly challenge. But he's not yet ready to shuffle off this mortal coil. He's staying in to play on. The valiant never taste of death but once! Saarland did a good job holding on to the ball, with 61 percent of possession. We'll be back after these interminable commercial messages.

The most outstanding Saarland player was without a doubt Ingo Scheele. Speaking of stinking up the place, Nico Lippmann sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The most outstanding Hannover player was without a doubt Hauke Tschiffely. Speaking of stinking up the place, Julius Zewe sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 2 - 3.
