Hannover 96 scored six goals in their Bundesliga match at Borussia Moenchengladbach - but three of them were in their own net.

Gladbach won 5-3, aided by two own goals from Tunisian central defender Karim Haggui and a third by Ivorian left back Constant Djakpa

"We saw a crazy, curious match," said Hannover coach Andreas Bergmann.

"It's unbelievable we scored six goals and lost. I don't think we'll forget this match any time soon."

Haggui's first put the hosts ahead after 15 minutes, but he was not at fault as goalkeeper Florian Fromlowitz slipped and kicked the ball onto the his foot and it rebounded into the net.

His second in stoppage-time, thanks to an errant back pass, sealed 'Gladbach's win just minutes after Hannover had cut the deficit to 4-3 and left the 25-year-old smiling at his bad luck.

Djakpa's own goal, that also came from a back pass that surprised his keeper, was equally spectacular and could not have come at a worse time, with Gladbach leading 2-1 and Hannover pushing for the equaliser.

Ivorian Didier Konan had netted twice for Hannover to keep them in with a chance but was sent off for a second bookable offence six minutes from time.
