THE TEAM NEWS

HANNOVER 96

  • Hannover 96 had to dig deep to come from behind twice against Osnabruck at the weekend as they scored three goals in a 10-minute spell late in the contest to seal all three points in their first game back in Bundesliga 2 action following the enforced suspension.
  • Hannover fell behind early on but an own goal put them level soon after, although they once again trailed as Osnabruck went head just a couple of minutes into the second half which looked set to be enough until Hannover’s late show.
  • A brace from Marvin Ducksch gave Hannover the lead for the first time in the contest before Genki Haraguchi sealed the win and Ducksch will hope his goalscoring cameo from the bench will be enough to earn him a spot in the starting XI here.

KARLSRUHER SC

  • Karlsruher SC avoided defeat for the second game in a row as they picked up what could be a vital point in their game with Bochum at the weekend but they still sit just four points from the bottom of the table.
  • Karlsruher were the better team in the first half but Bochum dominated the second period and the hosts were perhaps grateful to end up with a point after coming under some severe pressure.
  • This will be a tricky trip for Karlsruher and to make things even more difficult for them, they will have to travel without the suspended Lukas Frode as well as injured pair Babacar Gueye and Choi Kyoung-rok but Jerome Gondorf and Anis Ben-Hatira are back from bans.

THE PREDICTION

Hannover 96 could have been forgiven for a lacklustre start in their comeback match against Osnabruck but they ended the game in superb fashion as they scored three goals in the final 15 minutes to claim the victory. They now host Karlsruher SC who have managed to avoid defeat in both of their games on the resumption of the league but are still in a big predicament at the wrong end of the table. Hannover are unbeaten in their last five home matches and with Karlsruher winning just two games on the season this season, the hosts should be able to claim the three points.
