Our match prediction:
After failing to impress in a goalless draw with Hertha in Berlin, Borussia Dortmund will be aiming to return to winning ways in Bundesliga when they take on Hannover at their Signal-Iduna-Park on Saturday. The Millionaires are still eight points behind league leaders Bayern Munich, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for Thomas Tuchel’s troops. Borussia Dortmund are eyeing their sixth consecutive win at home ground and seeing that Thomas Tuchel can count on all key players for Saturday’s match, we are tempted to put our money on the title-chasing team. Hannover are on a six-match losing run in the national championship and the rock-bottom side are unlikely to spoil Borussia’s party at Signal-Iduna-Park. When the two sides met at HDI-Arena earlier this term the Millionaires recorded a 4-2 win over Thomas Schaaf’s charges, with Aubameyang scoring a brace for the Signal-Iduna-Park outfit.
