Borussia Dortmund welcomes Hannover 96 in a match from the 27th round of the German Bundesliga.
Let’s examine this clash in our winning soccer predictions.
Borussia Dortmund are third in the Bundesliga standings with 45 points and 4 points behind the 2nd Schalke 04. But with a game in hand. A win in the next game would mean that the gap between Dortmund and Schalke is going to be reduced once again to just one point.
BVB’s record so far shows 12 wins, 9 draws and 5 defeats. In their last five games Dortmund are almost flawless – three wins and two draws, being unbeaten.
During the week Borussia Dortmund had a major dissapointment, though. The former European champion got kicked out from Europa League from the Austrian champion Red Bull Salzburg. Dortmund were the favourites in this clash, but they found themselves unable to beat the Austrian team. Can they now bounce back against Hannover 96 in the Bundesliga?
Hannover 96 are 13th in the Bundesliga standings with 32 points won so far. They have a record of 8 wins, 8 draws and 10 defeats, which speaks of a serious inconsistency. But in same time they are on a serious distance from the relegation zone, so they can feel safe for now.
In their last five matches Hannover 96 are not showing a good shape. They are in a run of three consecutive losses, suffered against Borussia M’gladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt and Augsburg. Hannover are obviously not in their best form at the moment, which is good news for their next opponent.
Fighting with Bayern for the title is impossible, but Borussia Dortmund have a realistic chance to finish second in the league. And they will try to do it.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Bundesliga game between Borussia Dortmund and Hannover 96.
