Hannover – Hoffenheim
Hannover 96 hosts Hoffenheim in a match from the 15th round of the German Bundesliga.
Hannover 96 are currently 10th in the Bundesliga with 19 points won so far. They have a record of five wins, four draws and five losses. But they are currently without a win in four consecutive games, winning just one point in them – during the 1-1 draw against Stuttgart at home.
Hoffenheim on the other hand are currently 6th in the standings with 23 points won so far. They have a record of six wins, five draws and three losses. In their last match Hoffe enjoyed a thrilling 4-0 win over RB Leipzig.
During the week Hoffenheim had a game against Ludogorets in the Europa League group stages, but the manager Julian Nagelsmann gave a rest to his key players, picking mainly his reserve and young players for this clash. This is why Hoffenheim should be fresh and rested against Hannover this Sunday.
Hannover 96 can’t use the injured Felipe and Edgar Prib, while Mike Bahre, Oliver Sorg, Waldemar, Ihlas Bebou and Uffe Bech are all doubtful for the match. It remains to be seen if they would be able to play against Hoffe.
As for Hoffenheim, Julian Nagelsmann could be without Phillipp Ochs, Florian Grillitsch, Stefan Posch and Sandro Wagner. They are all recovering from injuries and they are still not 100% fit for a return on the pitch.
This looks like a competitive game. The difference between these two teams is just 4 points, so they look pretty equal in terms of quality. Both clubs had their strong and bad moments during the season. Hannover are in a bad run of result lately, while Hoffenheim dissapointed with their performance in the Europa League group stages. Now this should be a very interesting match between these two sides.
