Hannover vs Freiburg
Date: Saturday, 11 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: HDI-Arena (Hannover).
Hannover will try and catch their last train in the battle for avoiding relegation on Saturday afternoon when they play host to bottom-half rivals Stuttgart. The hosts are in a very tough situation and only a miracle in last two rounds could keep them in the top tier of German football for the next season.
The Reds sit at the very foot of the league ladder with six points between them and relegation play-offs (a spot currently held by Stuttgart). This means Thomas Doll’s men have to win both ties against Freiburg and Fortuna Dusseldorf and hope for Stuttgart’s two losses at the same time.
The first of two tasks will likely be the easier one as Hannover will play host to out-of-form Freiburg on Saturday at HDI-Arena.
Hannover vs Freiburg: Head-to-head
The head to head statistics speaks in Hannover’s favour.
The hosts won 6, drew 2 and lost just 1 of 9 home clashes against Breisgau-Brasilianer.
Each of last nine head to head encounters saw goals scored at both ends.
Hannover won all of past three home clashes against Freiburg.
Hannover vs Freiburg: Prediction
The lack of motivation caused Freiburg’s poor run of form and a streak of four defeats and a draw in last five league matches. The visitors failed to keep a single clean sheet in last ten league outings. They have a poor record of 2 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses in 16 league matches on the road (14-31 goal difference in the process).
Hannover may have been the weakest team in the entire division this season, but we have to back them to claim the soils at sky-high 2.60 odds based on everything written above. The hosts will be much more motivated to get the win, they’ve won each of last three home clashes against Freiburg, and they kept two straight clean sheets in Bundesliga before losing 3-1 away at leaders Bayern Munich last weekend.
