Stuttgart vs Hannover
Date: Sunday, 3 March 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
Stuttgart host Hannover in what could prove out to be the most important future of the season for both sides. Stakes will be huge with just two points separating teams right on the brink of the safe zone. Stuttgart are in a somewhat better situation as they currently hold the position which leads to the relegation play-offs.
Die Schwaben are two points above their counterparts who sit second from bottom and are in the red zone at the moment. Neither of two outfits have been pulling up any trees at the start of the year. The hosts are yet to clinch a victory after the winter break. They took only two points from six league affairs in 2019. One of these, however, came last Friday when Markus Weinzierl’s men surprisingly held in-form Werder Bremen to a 1-1 draw at Weserstadion. Can such result raise the spirits and help the team snatch their maiden win of the year on Sunday against fellow strugglers Hannover?
Stuttgart vs Hannover: Head-to-head
The head to head stats go in Stuttgart’s favour.
Die Schwaben lead the tie by four win, but they were particularly impressive in home matches against the Reds.
Stuttgart won 21, drew 2 and lost only 7 of 30 home meetings with Hannover.
Both teams scored in five of last six head to head encounters.
Stuttgart vs Hannover: Prediction
Hannover lost five and won one of six league ties in 2019. They were super easy to break down allowing three or more goals in four of last five Bundesliga affairs. They head into this off the back of two straight 0-3 losses to Europa League chasers Hoffenheim and Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Reds are one of just two teams in the division without a single victory on the road in this term. They drew 4 and lost 7 of 11 away ties in the league. Nevertheless, their attacking line should have plenty of room to deliver here if we know Stuttgart conceded as many as eight goals in three league games at Mercedes-Benz-Arena after the winter break.
We’ll go with the both teams to score as the main betting option at 1.70, while you can alternatively chase the draw at sky-high 4.00.
