Borussia Dortmund vs Hannover 96
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 18 March 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
Borussia Dortmund will be looking to recover from a disappointing Europa League elimination on Sunday afternoon when they host Hannover 96 in the 27th round of Bundesliga. The hosts have generally been struggling for consistency throughout the entire season and they ate on a somewhat of a poor run of form coming into this fixture.
BVB have won just one of last six games in all competitions, and that lone win came only thanks to the late stoppage-time goal from Michy Batshuayi last weekend against direct rivals in the battle for the top four finish Eintracht Frankfurt. The victory has kept Peter Stoger’s side at the third place in the league ladder, but the hosts can’t afford a slip-up here given that the Eagles are still only three points away in fifth.
Luckily for the Austrian manager, Hannover 96 have been miles away from their best form lately and they will head into this off the back of three consecutive losses in Bundesliga. The Reds have shown plenty of defensive holes last Saturday when they surprisingly fell 1-3 at home to Augsburg to drop to the bottom half of the league standings. This will be the music to the eras of Michy Batshuayi who seems to have regained the confidence with a brace in the mentioned win over Frankfurt seven days ago.
