Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Friday’s football game at HDI-Arena pits together Hannover and Stuttgart. Die Roten suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Werder Bremen in their last league fixture and they are eager to get back on course. Hannover produce much better performances at home than on the travels and the fact that they outclassed Borussia Dortmund (4-2) in their last home fixture is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Stuttgart. Die Schwaben outplayed the Millionaires at the weekend as well and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they face Hannover at HDI-Arena. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that they are going to share the spoils on Matchday 13. In each of their last three meetings in all competitions Hannover emerged triumphant, but share of spoils appears on the horizon this time out.
