Hannover 96 vs Hertha Berlin
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: HDI-Arena (Hannover).
Hertha BSC could even catch the position leading to Europa League next year as they are just three points shy of Eintracht Frankfurt in seventh place at the moment. The Old Lady have been enjoying a decent spell of form recently and they will have a nice chance to keep it going on Saturday afternoon against the struggling Hannover 96 side.
The Reds lost seven of last nine league games. They shipped six goals in last two losses to Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim and they practically have nothing to play for in the remaining two outings. It’s really hard to see them arresting such slump in form against the likes of Hertha who will enter the match off the back of notching seven goals during the streak of two wins and a draw in last three matches.
Hannover vs Hertha Berlin: Head-to-head
Overall, Hertha were the more successful outfit in H2H matches with Hannover 96.
The Old Lady won 21 and lost 12 ahead of the landmark 50th encounter with the Reds.
Both teams scored in all of last four official head to head games.
Hannover vs Hertha Berlin: Prediction
There is a high chance for the high-scoring tradition to be continued here. Each of last four league games Hertha BSC played produced three or more goals, while the same scenario happened in four of Hannover’s last five Bundesliga matches.
Pal Dardai’s men were pretty efficient in the final third recently bagging seven in last three outings and we do find the value in backing them to maintain such attacking form and bag two or more here at 2.25 odds. Hannover shipped six in last two losses.
Alternatively, going for goals at both ends is also a decent call at 1.66, while Hertha’s in-form striker Davie Selke to score anytime is also worth backing at 2.87. The German striker bagged four in last three league games for the Old Lady and he will no doubts have plenty of room to keep such form going past the struggling defensive line of Hannover’s.
Hannover vs Hertha Berlin: Bet Tips
