Japanese midfielder Genki Haraguchi struck his fifth goal of the season to help Hannover to a 4-2 away win over Osnabruck in the German second division on Saturday.

In the club's first game after a prolonged coronavirus-enforced shutdown, Haraguchi capped his team's comeback when he scored 40 minutes into the second half, five minutes after substitute Marvin Ducksch scored his second to give Hannover a 3-2 lead.

Ducksch netted a penalty to make it 2-2 for Hannover, who were scheduled to host Dynamo Dresden on May 17 before the club's planned return was put on hold when two of Dresden's players tested positive for the coronavirus.

The match was canceled and the entire Dynamo Dresden squad was forced into quarantine.

Germany's Bundesliga became the first major European league to resume last weekend following the two-month shutdown.
