Hannover 96 vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: HDI-Arena (Hannover).
Bayern Munich are cruising towards the triple crown this season. They already have the Bundesliga trophy in the bag and they booked the DFB Pokal final with a demolishing 2-6 drubbing of Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday evening at BayArenA. Finally, they are to ply the first leg of the Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid next week.
Having that in mind, the head coach Jupp Heynckes will rest his main stars for this trip to Hannover. Former Hoffenheim’s striker Sandro Wagner could thus likely get the chance to make the starting linuep. Whenever he got one, he normally produced in the final third and the match with the Reds should not be an exception.
Hannover have nowhere to go in the remaining four games of the season. However, we have to praise their form since the team managed to show a fighting spirit coming back from a streak of five straight losses to winning four points in last two league rounds.
Hannover 96 vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
Bayern Munich dominated this match up over the history.

Interestingly, three of last four head to head encounters ended with the same 3-1 scoreline.
Hannover 96 vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Given that both teams scored in four of last five matches Bayern Munich played, the away win & BTTS appears to be the standout bet at the odds of 2.62. Hannover will also come into the game high on confidence after beating Werder Bremen and holding Stuttgart to a draw in last two rounds. Obviously, Bayern Munich are still massive favourites to grab the victory due to the gulf in quality and the fact they won 11 in a row against Hannover 96.
The man who could make the difference is Sandro Wagner who will be the main option in the final third for Heynckes here. You can back the German forward to score anytime at decent-value 2.20 odds.
