Tuesday March 1st, 2016

Things briefly got dangerous before Hannover hosted Wolfsburg on Tuesday, as a flare fired from the stands landed on the home team’s bench prior to kickoff.

The team’s substitutes left the dugout and appeared to be unhurt. The flare appeared to be shot from across the stadium by opposing fans.

Wolfsburg went on to rout the last-place home side 4-0, with Andre Schurrle netting a hat trick and Julian Draxler adding the fourth.
