VfL Wolfsburg vs Hannover 96
Date: Saturday, 9th September 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg.
One of the two sides that haven’t allowed any goals so far Hannover will be looking to add their third clean sheet of the season as they face VfL Wolfsburg at Volkswagen Arena.
Wolfsburg struggles might continue in this campaign too. Following the embarrassing 2016/17 finish when they secured the survival in the relegation playoff, it was expected that the Wolves will reinforce their squad. However, they only registered a few valuable players and the fact that they heavily rely on Mario Gomez is their biggest weakness.
In the first round, they were completely outplayed by Borussia Dortmund on the home turf, so they will be aiming to repay to the fans and registed the first victory on the home turf.
Hannover had the impressive start in the opening two rounds. Alongside BVB, they are the only side yet to concede a goal. They beat 1. FSV Mainz 05 and FC Schalke 04 with the minimal result of 1-0.
The way side is focused on the defense and we will likely witness several low-scoring matches where one goal decides the outcome.
VfL Wolfsburg vs Hannover: Head-to-head
As Hannover was in 2. Bundesliga last season, their latest meeting dates back to 2016, when Wolfsburg obliterated them with 0-4 at HDI Arena. Wolfsburg failed to triumph in the last four matches against Hannover on the home turf – they have two victories and draws apiece.
VfL Wolfsburg vs Hannover: Prediction
Hannover’s aim in this match is to remain unbeaten in Wolfsburg. On the other hand, the Wolves are looking to get back into the top of Bundesliga, so anything other than a victory against the newly-promoted side would be underwhelming. Hannover are a tough nut to crack, so they might find the way to held Wolfsburg off.
