Bayern v Hannover 96 (Bundesliga)

Published on May 4, 2019 by

Bayern Munich will host Hannover at the Allianz Arena on Saturday (05/04/2019). The host is a favorite to win this match. The reason, they are very superior in head to head, while the latest conditions also do not benefit Hannover.

In the last five meetings between the two clubs, not once did Hannover get to steal points from Bayern. In other words, Thomas Doll’s club always loses. Even at the first meeting of the season, Bayern won a landslide victory 0-4 when they visited Hannover’s headquarters.

At that time Bayern did not only win big, but also absolutely mastered the game. Their possession, according to Whoscored’s records, is 72 to 28 percent. During the match that was held at the AWD Arena at that time, Bayern managed to release 33 shots compared to three shots from the host.

The situation is likely to be repeated again in this week’s match. Bayern are looking for an outlet after last week were held to a draw by Nuremberg. Playing at home and against a team that is exhausted in the position of caretaker, Bayern is predicted to get three points.

On the other hand, Hannover could have been relegated this week if it failed to win at the Allianz Arena. Their situation is difficult. The defeat in this match and followed by a Stuttgart draw could ensure Hannover as the first team to be relegated to the Bundesliga 2.

Hannover’s performance is not very good. It is true that in last week’s match they defeated Mainz 1-0, but did not become a guarantee of winning again at Bayern headquarters. Throughout 2019 Hannover has swallowed 11 defeats from 14 matches. That number could have increased after 90 minutes of the end of the match later.

Plus, Bayern always win in the last 13 meetings with Hannover in all competitions. This season, Bayern have also been able to win their last nine home games in the Bundesliga 1. Even the last five wins have been marked with clean sheets, aka their goal not conceded in the last 450 minutes at the Allianz Arena.
