Video: Pinto stunner downs Mainz

Mainz 0-1 Hannover 96’

Sergio Pinto’s sensational strike just before half time gave Hannover a surprise victory over Bundesliga high-flyers Mainz on Saturday afternoon.

The 30-year-old midfielder connected with a brilliant left-footed shot from over twenty meters one minute from the break, and Hannover survived the second-half dismissal of Steven Cherundolo to hold out for all three points at the Stadion am Bruchweg.

The victory means Hannover, who narrowly avoided relegation last season, are in 5th place in the German top flight. Mainz had been in 2nd heading into the game, but the defeat is their fourth in succession after a strong start to the campaign.
