Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Regensburg and Hannover go head to head at Jahnstadion Regensburg in the 2. Bundesliga round 13. The two teams are level on points in the standings ahead of Friday’s clash; therefore, a close encounter is on the cards. Die Rothosen are eyeing their fourth home win of the season as they defeated the likes of Wurzburger Kickers, Braunschweig, and Karlsruher earlier in the process.
A man to watch in the home team will be Denmark international Andreas Nielsen, who has netted five goals in the German second tier so far this season. Hannover, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a loss to Heidenheim, with the team beating Bochum 2-0 in midweek. Die Roten aim to move a little closer to the promotion places and seeing that Regensburg experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their last home game (Holstein Kiel 2:3), away win should be considered.
