Hannover vs Hertha
Date: Saturday, 1 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: HDI-Arena (Hannover).
Hannover ended a three-loss thread with a 2-1 victory over Wolfsburg in their previous home fixture. They quickly returned to the old habits though, falling 4-1 away at the second-placed Borussia Monchengladbach 4-1 after the international break. Can the Reds shift the momentum on their side on Saturday afternoon when they host the out-of-form Hertha in the Matchday No 13?
The visitors opened the new campaign in a decent fashion, but their form has seen a massive slide of late. The Old Lady are winless in last six league matches. They’ve been very easy to break down in the process allowing as many as ten goals in the process. The lack of meticulousness at the back was especially notable in a 4-1 defeat to recently-promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf and a 0-3 home loss to Freiburg. We thus have reasons to expect a comfortable afternoon for the home fans at HDI-Arena.
Hannover vs Hertha: Head-to-head
Hertha lead the head to head tie by eight wins coming into their 51st meeting with Hannover.

Hannover vs Hertha: Prediction
This match should really produce goals as both teams have been struggling badly defensively of late. Tall of last eight of Hannover’s matches saw goals scored at both ends. Knowing about Hertha’s defensive vulnerability in most recent set of outings, we just have to back the BTTS pick as the main betting option at the odds of 1.61.
If we add that both teams found the net in all of past five head to head affairs, it is a must-take bet. You won’t make a mistake backing the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.72 either.
