Leipzig vs Hannover – Bundesliga : The loss suffered against FC Porto, during the week…
On the Champions League was a cold shower on Leipzig’s ambitions. Now it’s time to switch gears. Even more because on the domestic competitions, the team is going through a rough patch.
It is true that the losses were against the mighty Bayern München, but the elimination from the DFB Pokal and the loss on the last round of the Bundesliga have sounded the alarms for Leipzig.
To stay alive on the title fight, they need to regain confidence and they need to go back to the good football they displayed on the first rounds, or else it will be too hard for them to keep up with Bayern on the Bundesliga.
For this round, Orban, after being sent off on the last round, and the injured Ilsanker will be absent.
The recently promoted team to the Bundesliga Hannover is certainly having an interesting campaign.
Despite having slipped up some rounds ago, the team has recovered the good football they presented at the beginning of the season, got two consecutive wins and reasserted their 4th place on the Bundesliga’s league table.
The defence is being Hannover’s highlight since they’ve only conceded 9 goals, which means they are second best defence of the competition.
The win on the last round, against the former leaders Dortmund, has awarded the good form the team has been on.
A 4-2 result where they didn’t give the powerful opponent many chances show how focused Hannover is in securing a spot on the European competitions next season.
For a recently-promoted team, an achievement like that would be undoubtedly fantastic.
The Brazilian Felipe Martins is still absent with a groin injury. The other two absences for this round are Sarenren-Bazee with a thigh injury and Prib, with a knee injury.
Leipzig vs Hannover – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Another great match to watch. On this Bundesliga, the balance between the teams has been setting the pace. Leipzig isn’t on their best moment of form.
They have lost their last matches, and they should play fuelled by the support of their fans, to get the result no matter what.
Hannover is doing well, recovering recently and having the team with high morale now. I believe that both teams should create chances here because both have enough quality to do so.
However, I’m risking on a win for the hosts Leipzig who really need to win and have the home advantage.
