THE PREDICTION

Leaders Bochum are aiming to get back to winning ways after losing 3-0 at Paderborn last Saturday. Luckily for them, the defeat - their third in seven games - did not prove too costly as the three teams below them also dropped points. When they do not lose, Thomas Reis’ men normally win, as they have only drawn one of their last 25 Bundesliga 2 matches. Hannover, in contrast, are without a win in seven, drawing four of those. They have won the last two meetings between these sides but they have never won at the Ruhrstadion in the second tier. Bochum have not suffered back-to-back defeats in the league since February of last year, so it is hard to look past a home win here.
