Hannover vs Stuttgart Prediction
Hannover returned to losing ways last week on the road after Bochum did just about enough to post a 2-1 scorecard. Despite taking far more shots at goal than their foes in that game, the hosts failed to capitalize on their efforts and subsequently made the trip back home with no more than a consolation goal.
Miserably, the home side have also tasted success just thrice in their past ten games in the second division. With no more than twenty points to their name, Hannover are now sitting fourteenth in a cluster of eighteen.
On the other hand, Stuttgart are on a two-match unbeaten streak at the moment. Their previous clash on the road saw them share the spoils with Darmstadt in a 1-1 draw. While at home, they got the better of Nurnberg with a 3-1 scoreline.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have stumbled only twice in their past seven clashes. Furthermore, they have admitted defeat just thrice in their last eight outings as well.
In sharp contrast, Hannover have been at their worst on home soil this term. As far as statistics go, they are the second-worst home team in the cluster and have dropped points in seven of their past eight games here.
As such, given that home advantage has been rendered redundant, count on Stuttgart to come away with all three points in this one.
Additionally, despite faring poorly at HDI-Arena, Hannover have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet in their last three fixtures here. Meanwhile, ten of the twenty-eight goals that Stuttgart have netted so far have come from their trips on the road.
Taking into account that their last h2h meeting here also witnessed over 2.5 goals on the charts, a high scoring affair is certainly in the reckoning this weekend.
