Team News

  • Konstantin Rausch and Christian Pander compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Karim Haggui is suspended against his former club and could be replaced by Christian Schulz, with Manuel Schmiedebach filling in for Schulz in central midfield.
  • With Lars Stindl injured, Jan Schlaudraff could switch to the right wing.
  • Didier Ya Konan and Artur Sobiech compete for a spot up front.
  • Lars Bender returns from injury to replace Jens Hegeler in central midfield.
  • Sidney Sam is fit again as well, but will most likely start on the bench.
  • Otherwise, manager Hyypiä will probably field an unchanged team.

Prediction

  • Hannover have lost three of their last four games and the team are struggling to find consistency at the moment. They have to improve defensively again.
  • Leverkusen are in very good form this season and new manager Hyypiä has led his team to second place in the table. With several players having a rest in the Europa League during the week, the starters should be fresh enough to get a result.
  • Both teams have played in the Europa League during the week, but Hannover should be more tired after a trip to Levante.
