Hannover vs Bayer Leverkusen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 10th March 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: HDI-Arena (Hannover).
With Wolfsburg in close pursuit, Leverkusen, who currently occupies the sixth and final European spot, would be wise to take advantage of their match against Hannover. The hosts are almost locked in for relegation, with just 14 points from their 24 matches so far. They need to overcome a deficit of at least seven points in the next ten match-days while taking on tougher challenges against the likes of Leverkusen.
It needs to be specially noted that Hannover is the worst home team in the league, and is the only one yet to score at least ten goals in front of the home crowd. Moreover, they have conceded the most number of goals of all the 18 teams in contention.
