Tesche’s screamer means little as Hamburg are crushed at Hoffenheim; Freiburg beat Wolfsburg

Hoffenheim 5 – Hamburg 1 (Bundesliga, April 25, 2010) Hoffenheim took a 3-nil lead into the break at home against Hamburg courtesy of Vedad Ibisevic’s double inside the opening 11 minutes and Obasi’s third of the half hour. (First half highlights here.) An outstanding 40-yard lob from Robert Tesche gave Hamburg a lifeline after the break, but that wonder-strike was soon forgotten as Obasi notched his second before Sejad Salihovic put the match out of sight with a fifth.

Freiburg 1 – Wolfsburg 0 (Bundesliga, April 25, 2010) Cedrick Makiadi netted the all important goal on 38 minutes, firing in a shot from 25-yards that Wolfsburg keeper Diego Benaglio should have done better with.
