Mainz vs Hannover Prediction 19 August 2017

Tournament: German Bundesliga
Location: Opel Arena
Match date: 19.08.2017 at 14:30

On August 19 2017 at 14:30 in the first game of the German Bundesliga at the Opel Arena the local Mainz will be visited by Hannover.

The previous campaign in the national elite division was a big failure for Mainz. They looked rather poor and at the same time they were really unreliable in defense. They finished the season with 37 points gained after 34 matches played and took the 15th position in the standings. They weren’t in the relegation zone only due to their better goal difference compared to Wolfsburg. All of these facts made the managed of the team be rather active on the transfer market and they really strengthened their weak links.

As for Hannover, they took part in the Bundesliga 2 in the previous season where they were expected to compete for the highest places. In fact, they fulfilled that task. In their 34 games played since the beginning of the season Hangover gained 67 points and took the second place in the standings just two points below the champions Stuttgart. Even though Hannover obviously need to strengthen some of their weak positions, they still haven’t signed any famous players.

The results of the matches played between the teams show the advantage of Mainz now as they won in three of the five latest ones played. Mainz haven’t lost to Hannover at home since 2010 for five games in a row. Hannover will have to face a serious challenge in the upcoming season where they will be competing for staying in the Bundesliga.
