Hannover vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Betting Tips

If you’re searching for Hannover vs RB Leipzig prediction and betting tips, you’re at the right place. Let’s see what to expect from the Bundesliga duel that’s taking place on Friday evening at Hannover’s HDI-Arena!

Yussuf Poulsen of RB Leipzig


Hannover are just above the bottom, although they have the same number of points as the last team on the table. They will have to work very hard in order to get away from the relegation zone. They want to get to the safe zone, although even getting to the 16th point would be good. The reason is that the team that finishes on that place goes to play the relegation playoff, instead of dropping directly to 2.Bundesliga.

But, even going up one place is not going to be easy because Hannover are in a very poor form. They won only 2 points in Bundesliga since mid-November. The main reason why that’s the case is that their attack was really poor. In that period, they scored only 4 goals.

Of course, they won’t care too much for their poor attack if their defense was doing a good job. But, they have been dreadful this entire season. This team has allowed a total of 41 goals so far, which is more than 2 goals per game on average.

Another thing that needs to worry them ahead of the duel on Friday is their home form. They’re the team with the least number of points won on home turf. They won 2 games on their stadium while losing 6 and playing draw once. And their goal difference is home games is 7:15.

RB Leipzig

They’re flying high in the Bundesliga at the moment. Currently, they’re at the 5th spot and if they stayed there till the end of the season, they would book themselves a place in the Champions League. And that’s exactly what they’re planning to do!

Leipzig are not in what you would call a great form, but they did win a fair share of points lately. In fact, they won 3 out of 5 previous Bundesliga games. But, the two that they didn’t win were defeats. On the bright side, those losses happened against two best German teams, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. Another thing worth mentioning is that Leipzig didn’t get hammered in those games. Both matches ended 1:0

And when it comes to playing against teams from the lower part of the table, RB Leipzig have been really impressive. They beat Fortuna Dusseldorf 4:0 in the previous round, while in the first half of the season, they destroyed Nurnberg 6:0, won against Stuttgart and beat Hannover 3:2.

Speaking of their record against Hannover, RB Leipzig are still without a defeat. Truth be told, these two met only 3 times in the Bundesliga, but each of those matches ended with Leipzig taking all 3 points. They’re hoping the same will be the case this weekend as well.
