Our football match prediction:
As expected, Hannover were beaten by Bayern Munchen at Allianz Arena in their last league match. Die Roten extended their winless run in Bundesliga to four games, but they are seven points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 15 and they are on the right track to secure the top flight survival. The newcomers are tough to beat at home, but Sunday’s football game against Hoffenheim will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Julian Nagelsmann’s men hammered Leipzig (4-0) in their last league fixture and they will be looking to build on the win when they face Hannover at HDI-Arena. Serge Gnabry scored a brace for Hoffenheim in the triumph over the Red Bulls and the pacey winger is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. When the two teams met at HDI-Arena last term die Roten defeated die Kraichgauer, but we are tempted to put our money on the visitors this time out.
