Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a hard-fought win at Eintracht Frankfurt, Wolfsburg take on Hannover at Volkswagen Arena. The Wolves aim to build on the victory, but beating the high-flying newcomers is easier said than done. Hannover kicked off the new Bundesliga campaign with a 1-0 win over Mainz at Opel Arena and, to make things even better for the fans, they defeated Schalke on home soil on Matchday 2. Die Roten are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s football match, but seeing that Wolfsburg are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on Mario Gomez and Co. In their last meeting in the German top flight Wolfsburg recorded a thrilling 4-0 win over Hannover, but a low-scoring affair appears on the horizon this time out. Daniel Didavi scored the winner against Mainz, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highligted Player (Vieirinha):
Better known as Vieirinha, Adelino Andre Vieira de Freitas originates from Guimaraes, and it was at Vitoria Guimaraes that he spent seven years before joining FC Porto academy in 2002. Despite getting promoted to the senior side in 2005, the winger was never given a chance to impress at Estadio do Dragao and following several loan spells, he opted to sign for Greek giants PAOK. Vieirinha clearly profited from exposure to first team football, scoring 18 goals in 78 league matches for the club. His impressive displays did not go unnoticed and Wolfsburg soon came calling. Despite arriving at the club as a right winger, the Portuguese footballer was eventually converted to right-back near the end of the 2014/2015 season and has since impressed in his new position. After representing his country at various youth levels, Vieirinha received his first call-up to the senior squad in November 2011, but he had to wait until March 2013 to be handed his debut. The experienced footballer, nonetheless, secured his place in the 2014 World Cup squad, making one appearance at the tournament finals.
