Uwe Koschinat’s men are hanging by a thread over the relegation line, while their counterparts are comparatively in a safer position. Still, with six match-days remaining till the end of the season, anything could happen, and as such, it’s good for either to have a safety buffer of points. Expect a competitive set of ninety minutes, with goals from both teams.

Sandhausen vs Hannover Prediction

Koschinat’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Wehen. It was a pretty undisciplined affair from the hosts, as the referee had to brandish six yellow cards, and a red card against them. Still, the guests managed to secure the three points, with the sole and winning goal coming in the 45+1st minute.

Meanwhile, the Reds were held to a 1-1 draw the prior game week, by Karlsruher. The hosts had the upper hand, and they were even leading 1-0 for the majority of the first half, before the visitors fired in the equalizer. Though both teams tried their best for another goal, the defense from either side did their job too well.

As things stand at the moment, points are in dire need for both, and especially for Koschinat’s men. They are just a single spot above the relegation cut-off, and are desperate to avoid getting the boot. However, they have nothing to lose, and will try their best very best for a win, or at the least a draw.

On the other hand, the Reds do have a game in hand, and more importantly, they were relegated from the top flight the last season. As such, they do have the experience of going through tougher situations, as well as the experience of taking on much better opponents. 

Likely, expect Hannover to avoid losing this fixture on Friday. However, they are not counted on to have a clean sheet at the end of the ninety minutes. The hosts are desperate, and on top of that, neither squad have recorded a win over the other in h2h clashes over the years.

As such, goals are expected to be scored by both teams this weekend.
