Hannover Player's Shot Cleared Off The Line After Snow Slows Down The Ball

Hannover Player's Shot Cleared Off The Line After Snow Slows Down The Ball

Genki Haraguchi must have been absolutely furious after the snow slowed down his shot and the ball was cleared off the line.

Yes, that actually happened. With Hannover trailing 2-0 against Bayer Leverkusen in the first half, the 27-year-old Japanese midfielder had an amazing opportunity to pull his side back into the match when he dribbled around Lukáš Hrádecký and fired off his shot.

However, Jonathan Tah was able to make it back to the line and clear the ball away after the snow took all of the pace off the ball.


Check it out below.

Unbelievable luck, right?

In fact, Haraguchi must have been more annoyed at the fact that Hannover lost 3-2 at the HDI Arena.

Kevin Volland's first-half brace had Bayer Leverkusen in the lead at half-time, but Jonathas de Jesus pulled Hannover back into the match and Mitchell Weiser's own goal gave Thomas Doll's men hope of securing a draw.

However, Kai Havertz scored late on and handed all three points to Bayer Leverkusen.

Talk about tough luck for Haraguchi.
