Hannover vs Wurzburger Kickers
Germany 2. Bundesliga
Date: Thursday, 8 April 2021
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: HDI-Arena, Hannover
Hannover will have a nice chance to bring a dismal five-game winless streak to an end on Thursday afternoon when the rock-bottomed Wurzburger Kickers come to visit HDI-Arena. Die Roten showed an excellent team spirit to come back from a three-goal deficit against the second-placed Hamburger SV on Sunday afternoon. The team led by Kenan Kocak notched three second-half goals to secure a point and significantly raise the spirits ahead of the final eight games of the season.
Speaking of the last eight matches of the campaign, the hosts can play without any kind of pressure. They can’t get involved in the promotional contest but are at the same time 10 points adrift of the red zone. We can say a win here against the last-placed opposition would firmly confirm their second-tier status for the next season.
Hannover vs Wurzburger Kickers Head-to-head
- Hannover will also be looking to get revenge for the 2-1 defeat they had suffered in the first part of the season against Wurzburger Kickers.

- Hannover now have two wins, one draw, and one loss in four clashes against Die Rothosen.
Hannover vs Wurzburger Kickers Prediction
The visitors pretty much gave up the battle for saving the second-class status. They are firmly tied to the very foot of the 2. Bundesliga standings with as many as ten points between them and the safe zone. Ralf Santelli’s men took only one point in the last four league outings. They probably missed the last opportunity to catch up with the rest of the division on Sunday by losing 1-0 away at penultimate-placed Sandhausen.
Wurzburger Kickers have a dreadful record on the road. They lost 12 of 13 league matches away from home this season. They have the worst defensive record in the competition with 53 goals conceded in 26 matches. This will be the music to the ears of Marvin Ducksch and Genki Haraguchi who have combined for 18 Hannover’s goal so far in the season. They were both on target in the mentioned 3-3 draw to HSV at the weekend. We are going for the comprehensive home win in a high-scoring affair here.
