Hamburg move to third after beating Bielefeld

German Bundesliga club SV Hamburg moved to third in the standings after beating Arminia Bielefeld 2-0 on Sunday, dpa reported.

In the other game on Sunday, Borussia Dortmund were held to a 1-1 at home by struggling Energie Cottbus.

Snow in Hamburg made conditions difficult for the players and it was a mistake from Bielefeld goalkeeper Dennis Eilhoff that gifted Hamburg the opening goal.

Eilhoff came out of his goals in the 32nd minute to meet a Piotr Trochowski freekick, but completely misjudged the ball and could do nothing as the ball sailed over his head into the back of the net to give the home side the opening goal.

The visitors should have equalized in the 55th minute after being awarded a penalty for a foul by Alex Silva on Robert Tesche, but Artur Wichniarek saw his weak shot saved by Hamburg goalkeeper Frank Rost.

Just five minutes later Paolo Guerrero doubled Hamburg's lead after being set up through a header from Ivica Olic. Guerrero managed to evade Tesche and delicately curled the ball past Eilhoff.

Bielefeld's Zambian striker Christopher Katongo, who had already come close with a long range effort shortly before the break, nearly pulled one back for his side in the 71st minute, but blasted his shot over the cross bar.

In Dortmund, Cottbus took the lead in the 31st minute after Ervin Skela's corner was cleared back to the striker and his shot crashed against the upright, only to fall to Atan Cagdas. The Turkish defender made no mistake from close range.

Cagdas gave away a penalty just five minutes later when he wrestled with Sebastian Kehl in his area and referee Peter Sippel pointed to the spot.

Swiss international Alexander Frei made no mistake to give his side a share of the spoils.

Dortmund ended the game with ten men after Lee Young-Pyo was red carded in injury time for kicking Cottbus substitute Savo Pavicevic deep into injury time.

On Saturday Hertha Berlin moved to the top of the table after beating the defending champions Bayern Munich 2-1 through two Andrey Voronin goals.

Hertha have 40 points from their 20 games, while Hoffenheim, who went into the round as leaders but were humbled 4-1 at home by Bayer Leverkusen, are on 39 - as are Hamburg.

Bayern Munich are on 38 points, while Leverkusen have 36 points.

At the wrong end of the table Borussia Moenchengladbach have 13 points, while Cottbus, Karlsruhe and VfL Bochum are on 17 points.
