Hannover are currently in the fourth place with 11 points earned, which is a huge accomplishment for a team that was projected to finish the season in the bottom two.
Despite the fact that they were dead-last in Bundesliga, the Billy Goats now have to worry ahead of UEFA Europa League upcoming match with Crvena Zvezda. It would be a disaster if Bundesliga side lost against Serbian squad, despite taking the form of both teams into an account.
