Bundesliga: Hamburg hands Hertha seventh straight loss; Werder sink Stuttgart to go 4th


Stuttgart 0 – Werder Bremen 2 (Bundesliga, October 4, 2009) Claudio Pizarro gave Bremen the lead after just three minutes and Aaron Hunt made it 2-0 six minutes after half-time as Werder stretched their undefeated run to seven games.

Hertha Berlin 1 – Hamburg 3 (Bundesliga, October 4, 2009) Hertha actually led when Arne Friedrich headed them in front in the ninth minute, but that proved to be a false dawn as a Kaka own goal and two carbon-copy strikes, both the fault of errors from 19-year-old  keeper Sascha Burchert, from David Jarolim and Ze Roberto sent Hamburg back to the top of the table and left Hertha rooted to the bottom.
