Hannover have been conceding pretty frequently recently, although they have also done enough to score goals themselves.

- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches at home.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league games.

The stats tell the story, and Würzburger Kickers have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 10 goals in total. At the back, Würzburg have clearly had some problems.
Ahead of this meeting, Würzburger Kickers are without an away win for the past 5 matches in the league.
