Wolfsburg 2 – Hannover 1 (Bundesliga, December 7, 2008) Zaccardo gave Wolfburg a halftime lead which was wiped out by Stajner’s equaliser on the hour mark. But just three minutes later Stajner turned from hero to villian as he scored an own goal which sunk Hannover.

Cologne 1 – Hamburg 2 (Bundesliga, December 7, 2008) Mladen Petric bagged a first half brace for Hamburg (first and second) which the visitors held onto despite Novakovic’s late consolation for Cologne.
