Hannover vs Hoffenheim.
German Bundesliga, Round 33.

Venue: HDI-Arena, Hanover, Niedersachsen.

Already relegated Hannover will host 13th place Hoffenheim on Saturday 7th May 2016 for the match week 33 of the German Bundesliga.

Hannover are in the bottom of the Bundesliga table with 22 points, they already know their faith for next season and now playing for pride as the 2015/2016 German Bundesliga nears conclusion. Hannover come into this game on the back of a 3:1 home defeat at the hands of Schalke 04 and have lost most of their games this season. With only 6 wins in this season’s campaign 3 at home and 3 away, they have lost 22 games and drawn 4.

Hannover are better on the road than at home, having lost 9 games away compared to the 13 lost at home, they have won same number of games home and away and drawn 4 games away.

On the other hand, Hoffenheim are a better shaped team than Hannover, they come into this game on the back of a home win and are unbeaten in 5 of their last games. They may not have a convincing form away, but they are better than the home teams, they have won 2 of their last 6 games, lost 3 and drew 1.

Hannover vs Hoffenheim: Prediction

Hannover are the under dogs in this game, considering their poor from both home and away, they have lost 8 of their last 9 home games, they have scored the least goals in Bundesliga this campaign and are nowhere near Hoffenheim in form Comparison. I expect a clear convincing win from the visitors considering their recent good form and scoring form.

My prediction Hannover 96 1-3 Hoffenheim and I expect to see plenty of goals from the visitors.

Recommended bet: Hoffenheim win.
