Werder Bremen also gave up a lead in the second Bundesliga game of the season, but scored their first competitive win after relegation to the Bundesliga in stoppage time.
At Fortuna Düsseldorf, Bremen won 3-2 (1-0).
Josh Sargent scored twice for Werder (39th, 64th), Rouwen Hennings had meanwhile equalized for Fortuna (47th).
It got really dramatic in stoppage time, with Khaled Narey in the lead role.
The Düsseldorf summer access initially equalized (90th + 4th) and only a few moments later caused a penalty.
Werder's Maximilian Eggestein scored to win (90th + 6th).
After the 1-1 draw against Hannover 96, Bremen had a hard time even in the rain in Düsseldorf.
The hosts were the better team in the beginning, missed the lead through Edgar Prib and Jakub Piotrowski;
Prib failed to goalkeeper Michael Zetterer (18th), Piotrowski headed just past the left (20th).
Bremen only got better after half an hour, after a lot of preparatory work by Niklas Schmidt, a shot by Niclas Füllkrug was still blocked (29th).
Ten minutes later, Sargent took a ricochet from Fortuna goalkeeper Florian Kastenmeier with his shoulder and hit the right corner (39th).
Hennings equalizes, Sargent counters
The tour did not last too long.
Hennings spitzed a cross from Khaled Narey into the far corner shortly after the restart (47th), but it was to remain the only offensive action of the Düsseldorf team for a long time.
Instead, Bremen became dangerous, as it did against Hanover, with standards from Schmidt, whose corner Sargent headed in from close range (64th).
In the 80th minute, Werder made the supposed decision, but the goal was denied due to an offside position.
Then Prib failed with a cunning free kick from the right half-field in the direction of the left corner on the strong Zetterer (82nd).
It should be the starting signal for a spectacular final phase in which Narey became a tragic figure.
The midday games of the second division weren't quite as dramatic, but all the more surprising.
Hannover 96, which had shown a strong game at Werder last week, went down 3-0 in their own stadium against newly promoted Hansa Rostock.
In addition, Regensburg won 3-0 against Sandhausen, Heidenheim 2-1 in Ingolstadt.
