Hamburger SV vs Hannover 96
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 4 February 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Volksparkstadion (Hamburg).

Hamburger SV shocked RB Leipzig by fighting their way to a 1-1 draw at Red Bull Arena to snatch their first point in 2018. The Red Shorts have thus scored their first goal of the year and they will be looking to take advantage of the slightly improved atmosphere to try and get the result at home against the mid-table Hannover 96 on Sunday.

The new manager Bernd Hollerbach is thus in line for making the debut on the bench in front of the home crowd after taking over Markus Gisdol with whom the team parted ways after the disappointing home loss to Koln two weeks ago. The new head coach can be thrilled with the result his men got in Leipzig, but he still has a mountain to climb in order to keep the Red Shorts in the top flight come May (the safe zone is four points away at the moment).

Nonetheless, Hollerbach could take advantage of Hannover’s lack of attacking creativity in the last couple of fixtures. The Reds could not find the net past the struggling Wolfsburg side in a 0-1 defeat at home last Sunday. Moreover, Hannover have been struggling badly on their travels in the last two months of 2017 and they will come into this after losing four and drawing one of last five league ties on the road.

Hamburger SV vs Hannover 96: Head-to-head

The head to head stats also favour Hamburger SV here given that they’ve won 15 and lost only 6 of 27 home matches against Hannover.

The previous meeting saw a comfortable victory for the Reds who dispatched HSV 2-0 in front of their fans at HDI-Arena back in mid-September last year.

The teams have three wins each in last six H2H encounters.

Hamburger SV vs Hannover 96: Prediction

The momentum is on Hamburg’s side and the hosts will be highly motivated to back up the draw against RB Leipzig and snatch their first victory under the new manager.

Hollerbach is expected to set up a defensive-minded strategy here and it should really bring the result given that Hannover have failed to find the back of the net in the previous round against Wolfsburg.

Moreover, the Reds have lost four and drawn one of last five matches on the road in this term of Bundesliga.
