Wolfsburg vs Hannover
Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: VOLKSWAGEN ARENA (Wolfsburg).
Hannover will likely be the first team to suffer relegation to second division of German football. They hold the very foot of the league ladder and are six points shy of Stuttgart who sit at the position leading to relegation play-offs at the end of the season. Whilst the gap does not look so horrendous on paper, it is in reality as it is very hard to believe the Reds can annul such deficit with such dreadful form.
Thomas Doll’s troops are not pulling up any trees coming into Saturday’s clash with Europa League hopefuls Wolfsburg away at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA. In Doll’s defense, he has plenty of issues with injured players, but it’s little of justification for a streak of six subsequent Bundesliga defeats. The latest came after the international break against out-of-form Schalke (0-1). It is really hard to expect Hannover can rise here against the Wolves.
Wolfsburg vs Hannover: Head-to-head
Wolfsburg have a positive head to head record in matches with the Reds.
They won four, drew one and lost one of past six meetings with Hannover.
Hannover’s lone victory came just in the previous clash with the Wolves (2-1 in mid-November last year at HDI-Arena).
Just one of past five head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored.
Wolfsburg vs Hannover: Prediction
Wolfsburg lost two of last three league matches, but these defeats came against the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, both on the road. They showed a super strong resistance to leaders BVB last weekend, conceding just two late goals at the death of the contest at Signal-Iduna-Park.
It was a different story at VOLKSWAGEN AREN A where the Wolves won two and drew one of past three league ties scoring as many as nine goals along the way. The hosts should have plenty of room to deliver in the final third pas the weakest defensive line in the league here. Hannover shipped 37 goals in 13 away matches this season. Home win in a high-scoring affair is the way to go here.
