HANNOVER, Germany (AP) - Ihlas Bebou set up one goal and scored another to give struggling Hannover a 2-1 home win in the derby against Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga on Friday.
Bebou set up the 19-year-old Linton Maina, who scored his first goal for Hannover with a volley after the half-hour mark. Bebou added to the lead from the penalty spot after Wolfsburg defender William fouled Marvin Bakalorz midway through the second half. The Togo forward sent Koen Casteels the wrong way to score inside the left corner.
Yunus Malli thought he had given the visitors an early lead but his goal was disallowed after a video review as Yannick Gerhardt had played the ball with his hand in the buildup.
Wout Weghorst scored a late penalty for Wolfsburg, which was better after the break, but Hannover held on to avenge its German Cup defeat to the rival and claim its first win in five games.
