Our match prediction:
Thomas Schaaf’s return to Weserstadion turned out to be quite miserable, as rock-bottom Hannover suffered a heavy defeat against Werder Bremen (4-1). Hannover’s chances for keeping their Bundesliga status are rather slim at the moment, since they managed to lose ten of their previous eleven league games. Thanks to their toothless attack, Die Roten netted a single goal in their last five encounters at HDI-Arena. Koln are also having problems in the offensive line of late, but the Billy Goats are a hard team to beat when on the road recently. Peter Stoger’s charges hope to take advantage of Hannover’s poor home form in order to achieve their first triumph in Lower Saxony since 2010 (D1 L3). Die Geißbocke’s defeat against Schalke 04 continued their winless run in the league, but they are still six points clear of the dotted line. We predict a pale, low-scoring clash, while giving a slight advantage to the visitors.
