Eintracht continues winning ways against Hamburg
Frankfurt, Germany (Sports Network) - Eintracht joined Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga table on Sunday after handing Hamburg a 3-2 defeat at the Commerzbank Arena.
The home side took a 2-0 lead inside of 20 minutes with goals from Takashi Inui and Olivier Occean.
But Hamburg responded just before the break from a corner kick as Artjoms Rudnevs knocked the ball down for Heiko Westermann to power home.
Hamburg also had a player sent off before halftime when Petr Jiracek received a red card for a poor challenge on Eintracht's Anderson.
The man advantage paid off seven minutes after the break when Stefan Aigner lifted a shot over the head of goalkeeper Rene Adler, while Hamburg did manage to cut the deficit back to a goal through Heung-Min Son, but couldn't do enough to avoid a third straight defeat.
