In the first of two fixtures, 1860 Munich put in a dominant performance against Hannover 96 led by a brace from Robin Hack in their most impressive performance so far this season. In the second match, 1860 Munich looked the most likely to break the deadlock throughout the match but a goal from Erkan Eyibil in the 93rd minute saw the three points go to Mainz 05.
The Bundesliga competition remains competitive with a new leader taking their place at the top each month with only five points separating the top eight sides. At the bottom of the table, two relegation candidates have emerged in Hannover 96 and Union Berlin while several sides remain close to the relegation playoff position.
Player Of The Month
Currently the equal leading scorer for 1860 Munich, the 23-year-old inside forward led his side to victory against Hannover 96 by scoring a brace. He has continually build on his skills throughout the season to prove to be one of the first names on the team sheet for manager Daniel Bierofka.
Continuing with his injury problems, Hoever has sprained the ligaments in his ankle and is set to be out of action for one to two weeks.
1860 Munich will continue to fight against relegation facing two mid-table sides in TSG Hoffenheim and Schalke 04 with a home fixture against Bayer Leverkusen in the middle of the month.
