Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
HDI-Arena will host the match between Hannover and Mainz. Die Roten endured a poor start to the second half of the season and seeing that they are sitting at the rock bottom in the Bundesliga standings, this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts. Die Nullfunfer quickly recovered from a 1-0 loss to Ingolstadt, with the team beating Borussia M’gladbach in front of home fans at the weekend. Mainz are just four points behind the Champions League places and considering that both teams will go for a win in Saturday’s match at HDI-Arena, we could see a real football festival in Hannover this time out. Mainz recorded a routine 3-0 win over Hannover in the first half of the season, meaning that the rock-bottom side will leave their hearts on the field in order to get their revenge on Martin Schmidt’s troops.
