( dpa ) - SV Hamburg were held 1-1 by Hanover 96 on Saturday to slip six points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.

Szablocs Huszti opened the scoring from the penalty spot late in the first half for mid-table Hanover before Olic salvaged at least a draw in the 70th minute for Hamburg, who have not beaten Hanover at home in five matches.

Bayer Leverkusen won 3-2 at Energie Cottbus with the help of a double by Simon Rolfes to move into third place ahead of Hamburg on goal difference.

Both clubs have 33 points. Bayern Munich lead the way with 39 points. Werder Bremen have 36.

SC Karlsruhe beat Nuremberg 2-0, bottom club MSV Duisburg drew 3-3 with Borussia Dortmund, VfL Wolfsburg won 1-0 at Arminia Bielefeld, and Czech Martin Fenin had a sensational Bundesliga debut by bagging a hat-trick in Eintracht Frankfurt's 3-0 win at Hertha Berlin.
