Team News: Hannover
Looking at personnel, there is just a single fitness concern for the Hannover manager Stefan Leitl to be concerned about due to a largely intact squad. Cedric Teuchert (Hamstring injury) will miss out.
We think that Hannover should go for a 3-4-2-1 formation for the game, handing starts to Ron-Robert Zieler, Phil Neumann, Marcel Halstenberg, Bright Arrey-Mbi, Jannik Dehm, Fabian Kunze, Enzo Leopold, Derrick Köhn, Louis Schaub, Håvard Nielsen and Andreas Voglsammer.
Team News: Hertha Berlin
Hertha Berlin manager Pál Dárdai has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Bence Dárdai (Ankle injury), Palkó Dárdai (Ligament injury), Agustín Rogel (Knee surgery) and Ibrahim Maza (Meniscus injury) will miss out on this game.
From our viewpoint, Hertha might utilise a 4-2-3-1 formation by sending out Tjark Ernst, Jonjoe Kenny, Toni Leistner, Marc-Oliver Kempf, Deyovaiso Zeefuik, Pascal Klemens, Márton Dárdai, Marten Winkler, F. Niederlechner, Fabian Reese and Haris Tabakovic.
In this game, Hertha Berlin will have to play really well to get a goal against a Hannover side who seem set to boss this game in attack, midfield and defence.
We’re therefore predicting a convincing 3-0 margin for Hannover at the end of the game.
