Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
HSV will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Hannover when they take on Hansa Rostock at their Volksparkstadion on Matchday 17. Die Rothosen have been impressive in front of home fans of late, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as hot favourites to win Sunday’s clash. Despite failing to find the net in the last league match, Robert Glatzel should continue to lead the line for the promotion-chasing hosts, whilst all David, Leibold, Heuer Fernandes, Rohr, Mickel, Vagnoman, and Ambrosius are likely to miss the game with injuries.
Hansa, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Ingolstadt. The visitors aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, but given HSV’s recent home record, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on Jens Hartel’s troops. Both Lukas Scherff and Maurice Litka are sidelined with injuries for the away team.
