Mainz vs Hannover
Date: Sunday, 9 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: OPEL ARENA (Mainz).
Hannover look to be sliding down the Bundesliga standings at an alarming rate coming into Sunday’s clash with Mainz away at OPEL ARENA. The Reds lost five of past six matches across competitions and they currently share the rock-bottom of the ladder with recently-promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf. There is little to suggest joy for Hannover’s fans ahead of the trip to Mainz as they will be up against a highly-motivated mid-table side on the occasion.
The O-Fives see this as a great opportunity to back up the 0-1 victory over Fortuna. They have generally been enjoying a fine spell of form lately. The team led by Sandro Schwarz won three of last four league games. They are very hard to break down at OPEL ARENA where they shipped just six goals in seven games this season. It is a decent record if we know they have already played the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund on the home patch (their lone home defeats of the season so far).
Mainz vs Hannover: Head-to-head
Mainz also have a nice opportunity to get on level terms with Hannover in the number of wins in their head to head record.
The O-Fives lost both of last term clashes with the Reds (0-1 and 2-3).
Overall, Mainz lead the head to head tie by four wins if we only look matches played at OPEL ARENA.
Mainz vs Hannover: Prediction
Whilst Mainz grew in form over the last couple of weeks, Hannover continued to struggle last weekend when they fell 0-2 at home to Hertha BSC. The Reds are pretty easy to break down as they shipped two or more goals in six of last seven games in all competitions.
Hannover only took two points from seven league games on the road. We just have to recognize a massive value in the 2.00 odds offered for the home win bet here.
