Result: Nils Petersen strikes twice to down Hamburger SV

Nils Petersen scores twice for Werder Bremen to give his side all three points against Hamburger SV.

Werder Bremen have defeated Hamburger away from home with both goals in the 2-0 win coming from Nils Petersen.

Bremen came close just five minutes into the game when Santiago Garcia tested his boots from distance, but his shot flew narrowly wide.

The visitors continued to dominate as both Martin Kobylanski and Petersen came close to opening the scoring before the latter did have the ball in the net.

Clemenz Fritz found the striker in the box and he calmly finished from just six yards out.

Hamburg came forward after the setback but found Sebastian Mielitz in top form as the goalkeeper kept out both Rafael van der Vaart and Milan Badelj.

The second half was a similar story as Hamburg's wastefulness in front of goal as well as another fine stop from Mielitz against Tomas Rincon kept the visitors ahead.

Despite both sides having chances in the second half, it was Bremen who wrapped up the points late on through Petersen.
