Hanover (dpa) - The sporting crisis of Hanover 96 continues.

Accompanied by the unrest over the corona test of a player, the former candidate for promotion also lost 1: 3 (0: 1) against 1. FC Heidenheim and has now been without a win in the 2. Bundesliga for seven games.

However, the Lower Saxony had bad luck on Sunday.

They should have taken the lead in the first half.

At the score of 1: 1, a goal by Genki Haraguchi was controversially annulled after the use of video evidence (61st).

Heidenheim initially moved up to five points on the promotion relegation rank.

The guests were much more effective and scored with a 30-meter shot from Marnon Busch (43rd minute) and a double strike from Robert Leipertz (75th) and Stefan Schimmer (79th).

Florent Muslija only used one of the many 96 chances to make it 1-1 (51st).

The game was overshadowed by the fact that a corona quick test on a Hanover player the day before gave "no clearly evaluable result".

The club canceled the final training and temporarily quarantined the entire team.

Only when all PCR tests were negative on Saturday could the game take place.
