Team News: Hannover
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Hannover gaffer Christoph Dabrowski to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Sebastian Ernst (Achilles tendon rupture) is sidelined.
Team News: Ingolstadt
Ingolstadt boss Rüdiger Rehm has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Yassin Ben Balla (Tendon crack), Denis Linsmayer (Unknown Injury), Nunoo Sarpei (Ankle Injury) and Fatih Kaya (Knee Injury) are not ready for selection.
We envisage that Ingolstadt would be disappointed if they were not to score a goal against this Hannover outfit, however it possibly won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We reckon that it will be both teams to score in a 2-1 win for Hannover after 90 minutes. Should be an interesting one.
