Freiburg vs Hannover Prediction & Match Preview

Freiburg vs Hannover
German Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 19 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg im Breisgau).

Hannover fell down to the very foot of the league standings after a tough 0-4 defeat to reigning champions Bayern Munich on Saturday. The Reds thus continued to struggle making it three defeats and a draw in last four league ties. They are now to travel to Schwarzwald-Stadion to take on Freiburg in the mid-week fixture.

The hosts come into this as favourites in spite of a disappointing 2-0 loss to strugglers Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday. They generally play much better in front of the home crowd where they saw off the likes of Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig recently, bagging three goals past each of Champions League chasers.

Freiburg vs Hannover: Head-to-head

  • Hannover have a positive head to head record against Breisgau-Brasilianer.
  • The Reds won 8, drew 6 and lost 4 of 18 meetings with Freiburg.
  • Hannover won three and drew two of past five H2H affairs.
  • Each of last eight head to head outings saw goals at both ends.

Freiburg vs Hannover: Prediction

Hannover have been way too easy to break down so far in the season. They allowed 33 goals in 15 matches and as many as 20 in eight games away from home. The Reds are particularly struggling for results away from their HDI-Arena. They lost five and drew three of eight league games on the road.

Given Freiburg scored at least once in each of last four home outings in Bundesliga, we fancy the hosts to end a negative head to head streak in matches with Hannover. The BTTS pick looks also to be the way to go if we know that each of last five matches the Reds played away from home saw such scenario.

You can back goals at both ends at the odds of 1.70 here. Braver punters will fancy the 3.75 odds offered for Freiburg to win & BTTS.
