Team News

  • Mario Eggimann and Johan Djourou could start at centre-back again, with Karim Haggui staying on the bench.
  • With Lars Stindl still injured, Jan Schlaudraff should get another chance on the right wing.

Prediction

  • Hannover lost their last game 4-5 against Schalke and need to improve their defence again. New signings Johan Djourou and Sébastien Pocognoli will need some time to adapt though.
  • Wolfsburg did well in manager Hecking's debut last weekend and the team is on the right track to finding consistency now. They have a lot of options in several positions.
  • Expect this to be an intense and competitive game from the outset.
