Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund suffered their second defeat of the season as Hannover won a thrilling contest 4-2 at the HDI-Arena.

Jonathas gave the home side the lead from the penalty spot after 20 minutes and set up Ihlas Bebou for the second after defender Dan-Axel Zagadou had volleyed an equaliser.

Andriy Yarmolenko made it 2-2 early in the second half before Zagadou was sent off for bringing down Jonathas and Hannover quickly made their extra man count as Felix Klaus curled home a superb free-kick.

Bebou scored his second of the game four minutes from time to make certain of the three points.
