Team News

  • Sven Bender and Sebastian Kehl compete for the spot alongside Ilkay Gündogan.
  • Kevin Großkreutz and Jakub Blaszczykowski both have chances to start on the right wing.
  • The suspension of Robert Lewandowski has been reduced to two games by the DFB on Friday, meaning Dortmund's star striker will be available for this game.
  • Sofian Chahed and Hiroki Sakai both have chances to play at right-back.
  • Andre Hoffmann and Manuel Schmiedebach compete for a spot in defensive midfield.
  • With Szabolcs Huszti injured, Konstantin Rausch could get his chance on the left wing.

Prediction

  • Dortmund are second in the league, already 17 points behind Bayern and after another loss to their rivals in the DFB Pokal during the week, the team might have lost confidence. They need to focus on keeping their top three spot now, which should not be a huge problem, given the quality of the team.
  • Hannover have collected seven points from their last three games and after a 5-1 win against Hamburg last weekend, the team is full of confidence.
  • Expect Dortmund to dominate the game from the outset and Hannover to try to hit them on the break.
